The ‘pocket rocket’ that people instantly warm to, Jordana has the unique ability to take people out of their comfort zone and have fun in the process! Jordana was very professional, going above and beyond from start to finish. I would happily recommend her.
The Business Centre, Pilbarra
From the very first briefing call Jordana has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. In fact, like no other. She really engaged and learned about our group which was evident on the day. Her energy is a breath of fresh air, although her request for me to capture a photo proved difficult. She doesn’t stand still long enough! Getting down amongst the audience is something that particularly works well to keep the group engaged. She was wonderful and I’ll be thinking of ways to have her back in the future, even if on a smaller workshop level.
National Mortgage Brokers
Jordana facilitated a one day ‘pitching/presenting’ workshop for the best of our best, during a multiple day training program. Her unique style kept everyone fully engaged through the entire day, which was incredible as there were people from all over the Asia-Pacific-Japan Region. She got everyone so enthusiastic about what they were learning, that the Japanese speakers attempted to present back in English! Jordana took a group of very competent communicators and made them much better. I will definitely be asking her to help us again and I can highly recommend her as a highly skilled trainer and communicator, and a pleasure to work with.
The audience was actively engaged due to Jordana’s dynamic speaking ability and interactive presentation style. Jordana gave our audience immediately useful steps to take-away. True learning took place. The audience left feeling excited and motivated.

The combination of tips borne of experience and the chance to practice what we were learning meant that the four hours just flew. Even the most nervous of participants enjoyed their chance to have one of the sparkly microphones in their hand!

Jordana was the perfect choice to MC and host the Pyrios Grand Luncheon event and fundraiser in support of Plan International Australia. Jordana expertly tied in the themes of the AFL Grand Final in Melbourne and the ICT sector, making up most of the attendee audience, delivering relatable humour that tapped into social psyche and fabulous banter. She’s authentic and draws on her own experience but importantly researched and prepared for the event to ensure she delivered our key messages, and invested significant attention to the feelings and emotion we wanted to achieve with people in the room. In this regard, she’s sensational. Our event also had a heavy theme, Ending Forced and Early Child Marriage – tough gig for a comedic personality to weave in, however she met this challenge and brought a lightness to the room ensuring everyone was connected and the event remained uplifting… No easy task! Her professionalism meant she could engage, set an atmosphere, build rapport with the crowd, have us laughing and keep us all to run sheet time! We’re thrilled to have worked with her for our event and would highly recommend booking her for any function, we have no hesitation in saying she will thoughtfully prepare and absolutely deliver an entertaining experience for all.

Jordana was a brilliant keynote speaker choice for our WYNnovation Summit. I knew this from the moment we engaged her. She was enthusiastic about the event, eager to learn everything she could about our purpose, vision and audience, and really embraced the opportunity. Jordana presented confidently and in a way that was interesting, keeping the audience’s attention throughout. Jordana was also incredibly generous with her time, staying for the duration of the event chatting to delegates throughout the breaks and answering any questions they had. Taking it upon herself to do some research before the day enabled Jordana to feature businesses that were in the room in her presentation, providing a personalised experience and REAL examples to cement her key messages. As an event organiser it’s a relief when you engage an enthusiastic, well-prepared and organised speaker and that’s exactly what Jordana is, highly recommended!”

Jordana’s social media presentation and her unbridled passion for social enabled her to grab the attention of the audience from the very start; with her keynote to our delegates one of the highlights of the day. Her incredible enthusiasm and entertaining delivery worked perfectly for the morning slot.

Jordana’s presentation was inspirational and energising, bringing lots of ideas, with examples and videos that were perfect for the audience. Jordana contacted us prior to the training evening to discuss our project and immediately understood what we wanted, working with us to develop a session customised to our needs. Her professional approach ensured the evening ran super smoothly and her fun-filled attitude completely engaged the audience, eliciting contributions from a crowd of initially skeptical workshop supervisors, producing multiple light-bulb moments, and giving them tools and insights that they have already started to use in their workshops. Jordana will be able to help you relate to, and communicate with, the different generations in your workplace.
