Reignite Your Work Mojo Finding Inspiration, Motivation and Excitement in the New (New) Normal

As we recover from the turbulence of 2020, it’s hard to find the motivation to embrace this rapidly evolving world with excitement and grace. We’ve transformed and workplaces are different. While we’ve achieved an enormous amount, it hasn’t been easy. Returning to work seemed like a dream, but as we adjust to this new (new) normal, it’s challenging for employers and employees.

When we worked from home, we wanted to be at the office. As we return to the office, we miss the couch. So how can you find the inspiration, gusto and drive to collaborate, connect and perform at an even higher level than you did in the past, when we still face so much uncertainty?

In this fresh, fun and interactive keynote, we’ll deep-dive into how the workplace has shifted, the incredible benefits of the new hybrid world, and powerful strategies to embrace unexpected change with strength, resilience and enthusiasm. Importantly, we’ll cover tips and techniques to fill your cup internally which will fuel your work mojo. When we are enriched inside, it allows us to give more and grow more, helping us connect, collaborate, communicate, and create, in new and passionate ways.

Feedback
Jordana's piece, Social Needia, is an extremely entertaining performance, specifically geared to students about the ever-growing desperation to stay connected, all the while disengaging from real life. Not only were the students entertained, they had been given food for thought concerning the level of their own social media activity, and ideas and suggestions about how they may 'reconnect' with real life. As a teacher, I too found Social Needia thoroughly entertaining and helpful in providing me with a deeper insight into the 'pathology' and language of a world so very different from the one in which I grew up. Bialik College

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 Pilbara

Jordana was awesome. She really did her research, hit the brief spot on and took day 2 of our conference to the next level. Her attention to detail was amazing, she engaged with numerous people in CUA to get the stories, information and lingo to make it feel like she was part of our team. Jordana is a very funny lady, had the audience laughing and achieved everything we expected plus more. I would highly recommend Jordana for her passion, attention to detail and most of all her great sense of humour.

Credit Union Australia

The audience was actively engaged due to Jordana’s dynamic speaking ability and interactive presentation style. Also, through combining humour, and an informal but highly focused keynote presentation, Jordana demonstrated good communications principles and how social and digital media has changed the world. Jordana gave our audience immediately useful steps to take-away. True learning took place. The audience left feeling excited and motivated.

Vet Development Centre

As the first keynote speaker on Day 1 of the conference, Jordana’s energetic, fun and inspirational presentation set the mood for the entire conference and provided content that was referred to throughout the conference. Jordana’s presentation made the delegates feel welcome and prepared them for an engaging and informative conference. Jordana's pre-work and research on the records management industry was on point, as she tailored her presentation to suit the audience. RIMPA would happily recommend her for any industry conference

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.
