- The inspirational and entertaining ‘show’
Inspirational Entertainment at its best! Julie’s ‘show’ format is perfect for any event opening or closing, or for a keynote address as it’s energizing, motivating and inspiring! Inspires self-leadership, emotional well-being and personal responsibility.
- Women in leadership … Making it work
It’s no secret that while Julie appeals to both male and female audiences, she has a special ability to connect with women. This presentation / workshop has been created for female-dominated workplaces / team environments to empower women individually to honour themselves, respect themselves and create highly effective team environments. As leaders the relationship we have others is directly impacted by the relationship we have with ourselves so we best get it right.
- Reconnection with resilience and responsibility
Resilience and personal responsibility back in fashion! She takes what can be a confronting message and delivers it in an inspirational and entertaining style, which has been proven to create internal shifts in audience members / delegates, and also create quantum shifts in team morale and productivity. While discovering and nurturing emotional resilience she reminds delegates that they are in control of so much more of there lives then they realize and that it is time to take responsibility for the choices they make.
- Service with attitude!
Service is back in the spotlight and rightly so! In a ‘High Tech’ world we need to focus on ‘High Touch’ more than ever. We can spend money on the best products, the greatest technical systems and the most fantastic marketing tools, but if our people aren’t inspiring them to buy from us and creating an experience that will have them coming back time after time and then telling everybody else about us… well we have more work to do in cultivating an attitude and in designing and teaching service strategies that delight our customers.
Thank you Julie, your humour and honest messages have made us all question and reaffirm our commitment to making our lives meaningful and fulfilling. With our lives as professionals demanding you have made us stop and realise the importance of looking after ourselves and putting in perspective the big and little things that surround and permeate us’

Delegates shared reflections such as - ‘Julie was amazing, I have never encountered such an interesting Keynote speaker before’ ‘Authentic, emotive, a connected speaker addressing real life experiences and connecting with her audience on a deep emotional level.’ ‘The keynote speaker was amazing!! Her presentation was so moving that I will remember it as a highlight of all of the ECTA conferences I have been to!’ ‘ Loved the laughter, the honesty, the ideas! Made me smile, laugh and cry. Lots of food for thought.’ Julie followed the keynote with her Leadership: an inside job workshop. Julie once again engaged delegates with her humour and fun activities. Sharing great ideas to motivate staff. Delegates really loved the practical tools Julie gave them along with the fun. Julie was so well received we organised a regional tour so she could spread her wisdom and sparkle throughout the state.
