KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Resilience means having the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties and to show toughness. This definition has been the cornerstone of Justine’s extraordinary journey over the last decade, a journey no one could fathom, but in Justine’s words, this journey has changed her for the better. Justine uses her learned experiences of overcoming adversities to help others gain their own resilience.

2011, she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, underwent three heart surgeries, and then had three primary cancers at once. She was told she would never work again by a medical professional. But that was never an option for her.

Justine catapulted herself into the world of business. She not only changed her life to give it purpose and direction but also inspired those around her with her story.

After learning how to paint and use her art as therapy, she has become a multi-award-winning artist and found the strength and determination to take control of her financial future. 

She now owns and runs seven businesses JUZT art, Resilience Mindset, Van–Go Decals, Morpheus Publishing, Team Fingerprint, Geelong Residential Cleaners and Justine Martin Speaker all being under the umbrella of Justine Martin Corporation. In 2021/24, Justine was nominated for 47 national business awards and won 16 in various categories, such as Coach of the Year, Creative Artist of the Year, International Speaker/ Coach Judges Award and Geelong Business Leader of the Year 2023.


Justine is an award-winning Resilience Coach/Consultant and Speaker, multi-award winning Professional Artist, Teacher, Amazon best-selling Author, Publisher, Mentor, Affiliate, Volunteer, Cancer Survivor, MS Worrier, DV Survivor, Disabled, Mum of two, Grandmother of seven and the Queen of Resilience.

“Justine’s story is an inspiration to us all. To be able to overcome all the adversity she has faced just goes to show how strong she is, and gives so much hope to others.”
Ella F., Attendee at MS Australia Event

Justine’s keynote speaking message is clear and empowering … 

“Life can throw us curve balls; sickness, job loss, death of a loved one, overwhelmed, no purpose … but it is our inner strength (our resilience, our courage, our determination) to get back up, navigate the journey of change, build ourselves back up - that truly defines who WE are. I will show you how”! Justine Martin

“Justine is such an inspiring presence. Her story comes across raw, unrehearsed is told entirely from the heart. She does not preach a certain way of living one's life, she simply walks the audience through the various roadblocks that she has faced and describes the mindset that she
adopted to overcome them, not just to survive, but to thrive. She delivers with such warmth and humility that one finds themselves drawn into the story and hoping for her not to finish speaking.”

Martin Jellinek
General Manager at Learning Services Skyline Education Foundation Australia

“It was an absolute honour to hear the inspiring entrepreneur Justine Martin speak in Northern Ireland in late 2023. Justine’s ability to speak from the heart, sharing her journey in a way that is authentic, real, and incredibly moving was a joy to listen to. Her resilience and strength in the face of layers of adversity, reminds anyone who is struggling with disability or chronic illness to not be limited by others’ views on how your life must look. I highly recommend Justine as a speaker to any organisation looking to inspire and empower their audience. She leaves everyone in the audience feeling a resounding “I can achieve”. ”

Bianca Stawiarski

Owner/Managing Director at Warida Wholistic Wellness
