KEYNOTE & WORKSHOP THEMES
FIND YOUR COURAGE
“It’s not the mountains we conquer, but ourselves.”
Self awareness is the key to self mastery, dealing with change & achieving success. Having the courage to look within to overcome our fears and to climb our personal mountains takes work though. Self work. Yet many struggle to see which limiting beliefs, doubts & fears are holding them back, which skills they need to go to the next level or which weak links may need repairing so that they can be the most effective leader, sales person or business owner.
Kirsty believes that everyone is capable of doing something extraordinary in their lives and that the biggest obstacle to success is OURSELVES. Through moving stories and inspirational & practical examples, she gives everyone in the room a little courage, leaving them inspired, empowered and equipped to climb their own mountains.

THE TRANSFORMATIONAL POWER OF TRUTH
“Embrace your fears and find your freedom.”
Discover how embracing your fears, trusting yourself to feel what you need to heal and going toe-totoe
with your most profound truths, can transform your life. All while laughing, learning and stretching
Research shows that one of the biggest fears that leaders have is ‘what will others think of me?’ This is a
universal fear for human beings, often manifesting as a fear of being truly seen, an inability to show up
fully, to be vulnerable, to take risks and causing people to disconnect, retreat, shrink and play small.
How can we lead others if we can’t lead ourselves? As Kirsty models so bravely for others, “You can’t
go professionally where you won’t go personally.”
- UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR DESIRE TO HEAL MUST BE GREATER THAN YOUR FEAR.
- LEARN HOW EMOTIONAL VULNERABILITY CAN STRENGTHEN RELATIONSHIPS.
- STRETCH YOURSELF AND BE WILLING TO SEE THINGS THROUGH A NEW LENS.
- IDENTIFY WHERE FEAR MAY BE HOLDING YOU BACK.
- BE CRACKED OPEN TO A NEW WAY OF THINKING ABOUT YOUR TRUTH.
TRUTH TELLING FOR TRUTH SEEKERS
“When we share our stories, we heal not only ourselves, but others.”
Interviewing truth tellers for the past 10 years and working on her documentary ‘The Truth Teller Project’
has given Kirsty a unique perspective on TRUTH. Capturing emotionally raw and powerful stories from
those who have endured some of the worst kinds of sexual abuse, risen up from trauma, overcome
addiction and moved forward from shame and stigma, she has seen that there are certain universal
principles that each truth teller had to learn to get to a place of acceptance, freedom and healing.
Kirsty’s own journey began as a truth seeker herself, looking for her freedom… she found it when, after
almost 2 decades of living with a secret, she bravely shared her TRUTH with the world in a first of it’s kind
TEDx talk titled ‘You’re Only as Sick as Your Secrets’. In speaking her truth, she released a ripple of healing
into the world.
#MeToo has galvanized the collective in a way that has been surprising to many. The time’s up movement
is now elevating truth telling even further and Oprah’s speech at the Golden Globes reminded everyone
that TRUTH is a powerful TOOL and that we need to learn how to use it. Kirsty believes that now is the
time for truth telling. And she doesn’t just mean big truths around shame, abuse, addiction and trauma to
name a few, but the little truths—the daily ones.
- RELEASE YEARS OF STRESS AND ANXIETY WHICH ARE BLOCKING YOUR SUCCESS.
- BEGIN TO SEE THINGS THROUGH A NEW LENS.

- REALIZE THAT WE ARE NOT ALONE. #METOO
- BE EMPOWERED TO MAKE A REAL CHANGE IN YOUR LIFE.
When your staff are buzzing 2 weeks after the event you know the speaker has had a deep and lasting impact. Kirsty was hands down the most inspirational speaker we have ever had present to our consultants. This was the most we had invested in a speaker to date and the ROI has already exceeded our expectations and the cost will pay for itself. She has left them inspired and most importantly empowered for a strong start to the year.
Kirsty’s ability to connect with and inspire every member of the audience is incredibly unique. She had every person in the room identifying and learning to embrace their individual fears. Touching their hearts and minds, by engaging with each person individually, she was able to help them move their business to the next level. Importantly she was able to magically weave our corporate theme throughout her message which made it feel especially tailored for us.

Kirsty Spraggon brought incredible energy to our event. She not only educated attendees, but she inspired them too.

That is immediate ROI — you can take a great speaker like Kirsty to the bank!

We have been hosting women's networking events for over 10 years, and Kirsty drew the biggest turnout we’ve ever had. Our guests were intrigued by Kirsty’s bio that we shared, and after the event were full of even more praises. Our guests loved how Kirsty broke down the elements of networking into realistic, easily achievable activities that each of them could see themselves doing that wouldn’t feel awkward. During the presentation everyone was so busy having fun they didn’t even realize that they were learning critical skills to implement when networking!
Kirsty is fantastic, and I will recommend her to anyone else looking for an inspiring, energetic and unique speaker.

Kirsty’s skillfully captivated our audience from the onset of her arrival. Her dynamic personality and charisma drew many to her as she navigated our conference activities before her keynote address. Many of our members reached out to her after the event to gain further insights about overcoming challenges and how to rise above self-imposed limitations! She filled the room with energy and enthusiasm and got everyone engaged. Her message was on point with our conference theme “Bring It On” and her story resonated with the audience. She empowered the audience to overcome our fears and challenged us to dream big! Her humor was contagious and it enabled Kirsty to connect with audience at a personal level. We love how she has remained engaged with us after our event through social media and emails. We look forward to more interactions with Kirsty, and recommend her highly.

Kirsty delivers an enjoyable and thought provoking workshop. She listens to her group and addresses all the issues raised by each person. She allows discussion to enable discovery of why challenges happen and how to overcome them. She turns frustrations into opportunities and work into fu-rk! Her enthusiasm and energy is infectious and the day flies by. Be there, care and share is a fundamental necessity to anybody in a sales role and is a great philosophy for relationship building on all levels. Kirsty demonstrates this throughout her presentations, on her website, in her book and her life.

Kirsty did a fantastic presentation and it was a tremendous success. There was a really positive enthusiastic feel to the whole event. I believe it went a long way to enhancing the synergy with the RE/MAX group in South Australia. The important thing was that Kirsty followed a brief and delivered what was really relevant to where our people were at, at that moment.
- Operations Director - RE/MAX
My Team absolutely benefited from a fresh approach to building relationships and the energy that Kirsty brought to delivering the training. Setting up a new sales team, in a new environment affords its own challenges however with the insights and enthusiasm delivered to our group by Kirsty we have no doubt that our success as individuals and as a Team is limitless. A dynamic presentation by a dynamic presenter cannot help but stimulate the activity required to strengthen a Team.
- Westpac Banking Corporation - Premium Financial Services
Kirsty's presentation was the highlight of the Conference and an outstanding way to end our day! Followed closely by the Cocktail Party where she was in the spotlight again with all our delegates wanting to talk with her. There was not a person present who did not take away an action, a behaviour, an idea and a sense of purpose to achieve more out of both their working and personal lives. From the first contact with Kirsty I felt like I was arranging an event with a close friend that I had yet to meet. What a wonderful experience this journey has been, Kirsty's warmth and approachability shines through in her voice and her written communication.
