Bullying is a global issue prevalent in schools, workplaces, sports, places of worship, and the metasphere. It exists in many forms and guises. From overt and obvious to subtle and insidious, bullying affects millions of people from childhood through adulthood. Many stories have been retold by people who have been bullied. There are far fewer stories and admissions by bullies themselves. The story of a bully and his victim sharing the same stage is even rarer.

RE:BULLYING provides insights into the physical, psychological, and emotional harm caused by bullying.
It takes a deeper dive into corporate bullying — what it is and how it manifests in both micro and macro aggressions.
The presentation elaborates on the costs, including absenteeism, “quiet quitting,” and diminished mental health. The benefits and tangible outcomes of managing bullying include improved morale, enhanced productivity, and more supportive and enriching environments, be they the workplace, sports, or social media.
RE:BULLYING approaches this controversial topic from a paradigm of harm reduction.
Delivered as a stand-alone narrative, this powerful presentation is followed by a short Q & A session. In-depth follow-up workshops focused on bullying in various forms are available as a package.
After more than twenty-five successful presentations, RE: BULLYING has received rave reviews and initiated impactful conversations. Schimmel and Fein have been featured on The Gareth Cliff Show, Hot 1027 FM, Cape Talk, and Chai FM.
Pricing and package details are available upon request.
