KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Justine Martin is an International Keynote Speaker, Resilience Coach, Author and Podcast Host. Known as the Queen of Resilience; her passion, energy and story to overcome adversities, is now a survival guide to thousands.

Her story is unique, and courageous and it will challenge your belief of what strength and determination is? She has propelled herself onto the stage as a keynote speaker to give hope, motivation and determination to others regardless of the path they are on.

Eleven years ago Justine was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, underwent three heart surgeries and then battled three primary cancers. Medical specialists told Justine, she would never work again. 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 & direction but also to inspire those around her with her story and determination.

After learning how to paint and using her art as therapy, she has become a multi-award-winning artist and successful business owner of Juzt Art.

This direction gave her the first steps of strength and determination to take control of her financial future. Her own journey inspired the passion and launch of a second business; Resilience Mindset, where she coaches, runs a resilience podcast series, and is a published author and a keynote speaker on resilience. 2022 launched the addition of ‘Team Finger Print’ a new corporate program combining a morning of resilience team building and an afternoon of bringing the team’s vision to life through painting.

Justine’s dedication and passion for helping & coaching others was recognised winning Gold at the 2021 prestigious national AusMumpreneur Awards for ‘Coach of the Year’ and awarded 7 national awards during 2021 & 2022 for her dedication and outstanding performance across her businesses.

In November 2022, Justine won the distinguished ‘International Speaker/Coaches Judges Award’ in a packed room at Q1 Gold Coast against 200 other finalists! This award acknowledged and cemented that Justine’s speaking & message is motivating and inspiring so many people not just in Australia but other parts of the world.

 

Justine now runs five businesses and has been a National Ambassador for MS Australia for 7-years.

 

Justine’s natural vibrancy and vivacious personality allows her to connect seamlessly with her audience, no matter the size…

“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

“It was incredibly valuable hearing Justine’s story and she was such a good public speaker. The humour in her presentation helped hearing a lot of sad life events and how she’s navigated through.”

Sally K. Attendee at MS Australia Event

“Justine is an engaging, informative and clear public speaker. At no point did I lose interest in, or lose track of where we were in her presentation – excellent public  speaker.”

Andrew N, Attendee at NDIS Talk
