Katrina
Webb

Unique athleticism and outstanding success.

Profile

Katrina Webb’s early career saw her competing in the upper echelons of sport on a global stage. High performance, influence and inspired leadership have always been a part of her modus operandi. Today, these qualities have positioned her as an influential voice in the world of purposeful, inspired leadership.

Katrina spent the early part of her career at The Australian Institute of Sport where she secured a netball scholarship and in a twist of fate was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. Ironically this opened up the doors for her to pivot her career into the world of athletics. It wasn't long before she was battling it out for bronze, silver and gold medals across two Paralympic Games, Atlanta 1996 and Sydney 2000.

As a result of Katrina's experience as a Paralympian, she became a passionate advocate and ambassador for diversity and inclusion. She also embarked on a career in the speaking industry where she developed a passion for leadership transformations, unlocking high performance and decoding meaningful human motivation.

Since then, Katrina has graced the TEDx stage and has represented Australia at both the United Nations and as an ambassador for the International Paralympic Committee. She also continued her work as a physiotherapist and as the director of Silver 2 Gold High-Performance Solutions. She is also a profoundly passionate philanthropist raising funds for the health, education and protection of children in Nepal.

Today, Katrina is the Founding Director of 'New Day Leadership'. New Day is a platform and thought leadership brand with a mission to inspire leadership for the greater good in an age being redefined by rapid change, uncertainty and a return to community principles via purpose-driven business.

Tommorrow's Gold - Leading Into Uncertain Futures

The world has changed, and what looked like success yesterday has also undergone a rapid transformation. As a leader, we must adapt and evolve in a brand new world where the focus is shifting from shareholders to stakeholders, from capitalism to community and from profit to purpose. You may have stood on the winning podium yesterday, but what got you there yesterday won’t win you a gold medal tomorrow. The games have changed, and the rules are revolutionary.

In Tomorrow's Gold, Katrina Webb unlocks the key trends that are redefining leadership in the 21st century in addition to providing a blueprint for navigating high performance as a leader in unchartered territory. Adaptability, resilience, empathy and diversity are converging to create a new kind of alchemy. One where community, compassion and collaboration are creating a new currency. A new golden thread to leadership in the next economy.

Audiences will walk away from this presentation with a refreshed perspective on leadership in the 21st century. Despite an uncertain future, those who lead for gold will have an innate focus on what it is to be human, and what it is to care for humankind. The only anchor in a world that is changing before our eyes.

Key Outcomes:

- Leading Through Uncertainty
- Building Hope and Resilience

Alchemize - Accountability In an Age of Self Leadership

Ideas have been circulating about the gig economy and remote working for the last few years, but no one could have anticipated the impact of COVID19 in disrupting how and where we work. Working from home also poses new challenges. In an age of rapid change, how do we alchemize performance working with an entirely new set of rules?

In this presentation, participants are taken through a three-phase process enabling them to audit priority management, energy management and mind management. Katrina provides insights and necessary tools that she has developed in her career as both an athlete and a corporate high-performance coach.

Audiences will walk away from this presentation with insights into how to maintain focus and set healthy boundaries when working independently. They will gain a better understanding of how to manage priorities effectively. They will also decode self-motivation and master the art of self-leadership in an age where the most significant influence we have is the influence we have over ourselves.

Take-Aways:

- Feel empowered to work from home.
- Tools in high performance.
- Master Self Leadership.

The Golden Minority - Diversity's Hidden Treasure

When we think of Diversity and Inclusion, our unconscious bias often leads us to generalised examples. Examples of this include relating disability to a person visibly disabled, or on a cultural level, we may think of racial minorities. It is not often that we consider what we cannot see. The less obvious examples of disability or difference. The person who is suffering a mental health condition, the victim of an abusive situation, or someone who is living with a learning difficulty.

In this presentation, Katrina Webb shares her journey of living with a hidden disability - Cerebral Palsy. The content has a specific focus on viewing diversity as the hidden treasure for an individual both personally and professionally. Katrina will take leaders through a process, empowering them with the tools to decode hidden diversity to ignite innovation via inclusion of what is seen, and more significantly what is unseen.

Audiences will walk away from this presentation with the tools to amplify hidden potential and performance in people and to inspire a more inclusive and innovative culture. They will develop skills to influence with integrity and to enhance empathy and emotional intelligence. This activates a sense of purpose, adaptability and cohesion within an organisational culture. The Golden Minority is diversity's hidden treasure.

Take-Aways:

- Enhance Inclusion leading to Innovation.
- Ignite Human Potential.
- Build empathy and emotional intelligence.
- Build connection and culture.

Feedback
Katrina was very inspirational and got a standing ovation from everyone attending. It certainly lifted our event and gave our corporates who attended, I believe, that extra motivation and feeling of "value add". All the feedback I have heard about Katrina was extremely positive. One attendee thought it was terrific that she passed around her medals for people to hold etc. I personally was very impressed with the way she followed through on the briefing, had done her homework about Minda and linked her speech to Minda's core values of Inclusion, Respect and Choice Minda Incorporated

Just a quick e-mail to say a big thankyou for your talk last week to the GHD business school at the Hyatt in Adelaide. It made us look inside and take stock, look at where we were, where we all wanted to be and how we could get there as standing still is definitely a step backwards. Inspiring and energizing!

Katrina was fantastic! Her talk was exactly what we wanted. She arrived well in advance to prepare/ask questions etc and tied in a few local comments into her talk which won points with the audience. Those in attendance enjoyed the presentation and found it very thought provoking

What an amazing impact you had at our awards lunch on Friday . Your great stage presence, immaculate timing and perfect perception about the audience connecting your experience to their own, all made for a magnificent presentation! Thank you so much for giving what you did- you made a difference!

Katrina’s was one of the highlights from the three-week ING International Graduate Programme. Her message was on target - sharing with the group of young, high potentials from around the world, that they can make a difference even in adverse circumstances. She immediately captured and engaged the audience. I also so appreciated that she wanted to spend time getting to know the group. Her authenticity and genuine concern came through. I would not hesitate in recommending her to others and would definitely engage her again.
