Specialty Areas

Meet Julie Cross CSP, one of the most inspiring keynote speakers in Australia. She combines powerful insights into human behaviour with practical strategies that leaves audiences with powerful tools for living their best life and setting a higher standard in all aspects of their existence.
Whether she’s presenting to five or 500, her message resonates on a deep level, enabling her presentations to have residual effect and lasting impact.
We have speakers that deliver the systems, the information, the knowledge, the statistics, the methodology and the bottom line, and that is great, we need that, however…
Julie takes it to the next step and connects the information in our heads with the inspiration in our hearts. Emotion creates motion and that is where the action happens. Delegate’s will takes action when they feel empowered to do so, and after experiencing Julie Cross, they are empowered to do so!

Julie Cross’ qualifications and expertise stems from an early start in the workforce and through gaining a diploma from the university of “real life”. Julie has taken responsibility for her own personal development while coping with personal and professional challenges, many of which she shares during her powerful and moving presentations.

Julie has 20 years speaking experience. Having kick-started her working life as a hairdresser in her teens, you know, that was back in the day when you just left school and got a job!

Julie’s strength has always been motivating and inspiring, whether that is inspiring people to do business with or inspiring a team to work with her…

After completing an apprenticeship in the hairdressing industry Julie quickly moved into management and leadership roles, and thanks to her gift for communicating and empowering others, into sales and training. It was in the capacity as trainer that she discovered her passion and natural talent for speaking. So with a dream in her head and a passion in her heart she started her own business, and as they say, “The rest is history!”

Our audiences in 2018 through the Future of Leadership had the real pleasure of listening to Julie Cross share her story from stage. Julie’s story is an emotional one that will have you laughing and crying and sometimes your laughing that hard that you’re crying as well. She is a masterful storyteller who weaves into her messages valuable lessons for all of us who have to step up and lead which we all do at some point in time. I watched the audience as they hung on every word that Julie shared telling personal stories that many of us previously might not have felt were fit for public consumption. She breaks down barrier after barrier and that is why we can’t wait to work with her again in 2019 and beyond.

We had the absolute pleasure of having Julie Cross speak twice during our recent overseas Blueprint Conference. She was such a delight to work with leading up to the event. She wow’d our clients and had them in stitches for most of the presentation (which is exactly what we were looking for). She is a very authentic speaker who engages the crowd right from the beginning and has their attention for the entire presentation. She also mixed and mingled with our clients and they all fell in love with her. I would highly recommend her to anyone hosting a conference/event that wants a stand out speaker – because that’s what Julie is. Thank you Julie, we look forward to working with you again.

Your energy, your truth, your connection, and your understanding of life, all combine to make the most amazing impact on everyone present. You are the first speaker mentioned when people call to thank me for our program. The sparkle that emanates from you is not about your sequins – you are pure magic!

Thank you for your presence at they Stylz Hair conference. I felt like you were in the room. Your message was inspiring, refreshing and genuine.
