From child solider in Africa to successful business woman in Australia.

The simple act of changing your mind can change your life.

From the moment the whirlwind that is Fiori Giovanni hits the stage, she has her audience enraptured. At times laughing out loud, other times in tears and often deep in thoughtful silence as they travel an exciting and emotional journey that will change their lives.

Sure, Fiori’s extraordinary story is a route probably only a few other women in the world have travelled, but she tells it in a way that leaves her audience with the keys, tools, and attitudes that shape courage, resilience, real leadership and a shift in mindset.

Courage to tackle the changes they’ve dreamt about but for which they fear failure, Resilience to overcome challenges, Leadership to envision and define their goals and Mindset to shift from a victim to a victor. In a nutshell, Fiori shares a potent formula that empowers others to overcome problems, both big and small.

All the above traits are something that Fiori has needed in massive amounts being born in a war-torn African and overcoming the challenge of a pubescent arranged marriage, and as a teenager being mandatorily subscripted into the army and clinging to life in a leaking boat loaded with refugees. She had the courage to survive and learn from these experiences to become a serial entrepreneur, a #1 best-selling author, media commentator, human rights activist, proud mother of two and sought-after Keynote speaker.

Current Work:

Fiori believes that the reason she has been hired is to change the thoughts, words or deeds of her audience. Thus, she always carefully tailors her presentation to achieve the required result. Each presentation is, therefore, unique.

No matter what the keynote, Fiori connects deeply with every audience member as she shares her wisdom. After hearing Fiori speak, audience members are uplifted by her spirit, inspired by her courage and motivated to take action.

Fiori is also CEO of Transformations Coaching Group and Co-founder of Transformed Outcomes where she partners with high-level executives in her capacity as an Executive Business Coach to develop leadership skills, build high-performance sales teams, drive profits and tackle major challenges.

Additionally, she is the owner of My Mind Valley, an online product hub for those seeking fulfilment, confidence and clarity through affirmations. Fiori believes affirmations are one of the most profound and effective ways to implement personal change. She owes her very survival to their potency. My Mind Valley houses over 30 affirmation topics, which are available in audio, video and eBook formats at

In addition to her best selling memoir, Defy your Destiny, Fiori’s writing has been published in a book titled Letter to my 21-year-old self which will raise money for Sydney’s only daytime women’s refuge, Lou’s Place. Her letter will feature alongside letters by Oprah Winfrey, Collette Dinnigan, Lisa Forrest, Claudia Karvan, and more.

Fiori’s work has been published in the book It Is All Possible by former world champion yachtsman Rob Hartnett.

Fiori has appeared on screens and publications around Australia including Studio Ten, The Herald Sun, Latte, Woman of Style and Substance, F Magazine (a publication celebrating female success) and Sunraysia Daily.

When I finally attended her event, I understood what all the fuss was about! Her seminar was indeed inspiring, riveting and fun. She kept us engaged by asking powerful, thought-provoking questions.
