JJ was a perfect fit for a FCTG conference.  Her humour, messaging and direct approach was all spot on.  Become, Attract and Create worked beautifully with our theme of shaping the future.  What the team and I appreciated most about JJ was just her honest and gritty style which was not only refreshing but captivating. 
We were delighted to have JJ at our conference, and she exceeded our expectations.  It was also wonderful to have her join us and the team for lunch to continue the conversation. - Flight Centre

“JoAnna was the closing speaker at our TEDxMelbourne 2016 event. She delivered the most powerful and passionate talk of the day and ended up with a well deserved standing ovation (hard to do on a TEDx stage).” -Jon Yeo/ Licensee and Curator at TEDx Melbourne

After my transition, I had to retrain my body, mind and spirit to be strong, confident and capable. I also had to retrain my immediate world and others around me to trust, believe in and support me. That's what I want to train your audiences to do for themselves! - JJ Ferrari

The Feeling of CHANGE: Explore and Expand Your Inner Universe. Discover Unlimited Creativity, Innovation & Happiness.

In the first chapter of my life, I strode through the world as a man, driven by the allure of success, the pursuit of wealth, and a sincere desire to uplift others with my skills. My days and years were woven with achievements, prosperity, and a sense of purpose. But destiny had a different tale in store for me.

As I embarked on my transformative path of gender transition, I found myself facing a whirlwind of loss, poor health, and chaos. What I first envisioned as a life as a woman turned out to be an unexpected turn of fate. It was within this storm of adversity that I discovered the depths of my resilience, my authenticity, the fragility of life, and the power of the human spirit.

JJ does more than just tick the speakers boxes for her speaking clients. She provides everything you need to feel confident you've hired the right speaker that your audience will love and will boost your events success.

In our initial conversation I think it's important for us to get to know each other better, so we know we can work together. Next let's talk about your theme and what kind of presentation you need from me for your event. Then when you feel confident of hiring me, we can make a plan to create an impactful presentation. 

I'm excited for our conversation. Is there anything you'd like to discuss besides these 3 things?

  1. Your current event date, theme and plans.
  2. Which of my presentations would best serve your audience and event [and what tailoring we need to do to make sure the message hits the mark].
  3. Most importantly, can we work together and communicate well? That's why I love this first conversation, it's always fun to meet new people and see how we can work together.
I work with clients looking for an inspirational speaker that brings a strong track record and the ability to bring audiences energy, enthusiasm and motivation up. Its my job to do a presentation that helps make your event a success.Something to consider; does your audience need a shot of direct honesty and adrenaline? Do they need real world ideas and stories? If yes, thats ME 🙂 Based on your objectives and outcomes I will plan a sound strategy and design to my presentation. Part of what I do very well is my pre-event communication with my clients. I think its as important as what you do on the day.
