“AMAZING…” “INSPIRATIONAL…” “REMARKABLE…”

These are just some of the words used to describe Janine’s presentation and why she is consistently voted the ‘best ever’ speaker conferences have ever had.

When she speaks, Janine Shepherd takes us on an amazing journey. A journey on a road with so many twists and turns, so many deep valleys and steep hills that it mirrors the road we travel in own lives every single day.

This is a story that takes us from the pinnacle of elite athletics competition to the pain and fear of being wheelchair-bound and facing the shattering reality of life-threatening and permanent injury; from the exhilaration of flight to the struggle of taking one difficult step at a time on a long road to recovery which continues to this day.

Too often something that is meant to inspire and motivate leaves us feeling that little bit inadequate; there is initial buzz, then reality envelops us and we go on, unchanged.

Janine had a point of difference. She leaves her audience not only awed, humbled, and uplifted, but causes them to think deeply about the way they live their own lives.

Through powerful and emotive storytelling, Janine provides the tools which connect to her 5 pillars of well-being, Passion, Purpose, Perseverance, Play and Presence. We are then able to harness our energy, take bold action, and transform whatever challenges we currently face into outstanding growth and change. 

From the classroom to the kitchen to the boardroom, there is something for everyone in Janine’s message of hope. She believes such boundaries are in fact artificial; that all is one – what we incorporate into our personal life when we transform dreams into reality cannot help but influence our work, our relationships and our reality.

Janine is real. She is funny, interesting and inspirational. She laughs at herself, she helps us see the humour and beauty of every situation, even the hardest, most painful, and difficult we have to face.

She teaches us to love the hills, for they are how we learn to fly.
