Success Stories From My Clients
"Ciara is an amazing speaker with easy to digest advice! Thanks for bringing the energy you bring to our 5 state forum tour. We are already hearing good news stories from our teams implementing the personal changes shared in the Rapid Resilience Reset keynote.”
COMMBANK | RAPID RESILIENCE RESET® ROADSHOW SPEAKER
"Ciara was phenomenal…by far the best facilitator and speaker that I have seen! She was warm, engaging and welcoming. The session was really thought-provoking, even emotional at times, with lots of key takeaways that our leaders can go away and implement as soon as next week when they are back with the wider team.
Why did we book Ciara? She is the leading expert in this space and all of our interactions with her leading up to the event were so positive. Having just finished the session, the room is absolutely feeling pumped and ready to tackle change moving forward!"

WHY ME, WHY NOW?
The gold medalist, the war hero, the mindfulness yogi. Each brings their own unique lens to the topic of resilience. Yet, few deliver lasting results post-event because their content is simply too far removed from the realities of the fast-paced business world.
I help resilient leaders re-awaken their brilliance and optimise their performance. My expertise comes from leading teams of 500+ through business transformation at the Big 4 and from the research uncovered from my #1 best-selling book 'Reimagine Change®', awarded a 'Finalist Medal' in the 2021 Australian Career Book Awards. Behind the scenes, I am also a proud mum of two energetic little boys.
Your audience will be nodding along to the unspoken challenges in today's workplace (fatigue, change expectations and poor innovation) before being transformed by the latest human behaviour hacks.
When learnings are relevant, relatable and research-backed, your audience will leave ready and willing to make an impact. All keynotes are underpinned by the latest research in modern psychology, neuroscience and change leadership.Book Ciara as an opening speaker
