Captivate. Educate. Inspire

Considered one of Australia's hottest rising stars and thought leaders in mindset, communication and human behaviour. Julie-Anne Black gives presentations that pull focus on the connection between your thoughts, words, actions and results. Giving you the strategies, confidence and know-how that comes from being brilliant now.

Did you know the most dastardly villain in the hero's journey is to have a BIG dream and then sabotage your success by second-guessing your ideas and doubting your ability and influence to make it your reality?

The most common question of all is
"Do I have what it takes?"

Every movie you've ever loved is likely because of the tension caused between the hero and their arch nemesis. On a movie set, it can be exhilarating. In your life, it can be exhausting. As if you're stuck in Groundhog Day or on an emotional rollercoaster and can't get off!

At the heart of your audience, they want to make a massive difference sharing their best work in the world. They are emerging leaders and creative entrepreneurs who want to be supported, encouraged and challenged to be brilliant now.

Julie-Anne Black has a fresh approach that simply transforms lives.

With a global mission to show you how to take charge of your success and happiness. Julie-Anne will show you how to boost your communication skills and shed those BS excuses so you can produce a life more compelling to live than a hit TV show is to watch.

In her presentations, Julie-Anne shares the fundamental basics of how and why you communicate the way you do. Why do you make those decisions where you know how that movie ends but you 'say that thing', 'do that behaviour' or 'take that action' anyway. Then have to clean up the collateral damage. Ahhh it can very frustrating to witness and even more so to experience.

There are so many bright stars standing in the shadows of their own potential. Feeling like an imposter wishing they had a voice of influence  If this is you, your team or your audience it's time for a script change. Let's create a way where you produce, write, direct, edit and star in the life scenes that inspire you to love fully, live passionately and be wickedly brilliant!

Keynote presentations that will transform the way you think, act and communicate.

Julie-Anne Black has experience, raw charm, a beaming smile, infectious enthusiasm and zing that are big draws on the international stage as leaders all over the world seek her expertise.

Her commitment to delivering compelling, unique content with energy, passion and humour to make your event an extraordinary experience in the lives of your audience members, is second to none.

It's time to change your inner game and master your mind so you can be bold, be brave and be brilliant now instead of hoping to be tomorrow.

Simon Armstrong
General Manager

We had Julie-Anne attend and present at our Christmas conference last December. We had a room of approximately 45 people. Julie-Anne provided an overview of her interesting and exciting life up to now. Then provided a few fun and thought prompting activities based around finding a positive in everything we do and always remember to smile - its not that hard. The group were a little standoffish at the start but were all actively involved shortly after and wanting more at the end. She provides enthusiasm, energy and life experiences into every minute you are with her. Julie-Anne has been a valuable find for our company and staff with several taking up some one-on-one time with her for life coaching.

Kevin Pascoe
Professional Development Manager BMW Group Australia

We have engaged Julie-Anne Black to deliver our NLP courses for key customer-facing staff within our dealer network, she has been delivering these courses for us over the last 24 months. Given the program content and the target audience, it was essential that we selected the ‘right fit’ of trainer who was able to engage and present in a manner that allowed the full benefits of the training to be understood and implemented.

Julie-Anne makes training challenging, business-focused but above all fun and memorable. Participant feedback has been consistently rated Julie-Anne's courses amongst our highest rated programs and there is ongoing anecdotal evidence to suggest the impact of her training will continue to add value to the individuals and the businesses that they represent. When you enter one of Julie-Anne's training rooms at the end of each day, you get an overwhelming sense of high energy, active learning and enthusiasm amongst the attendees, clearly they enjoy her style. Julie-Anne is a high impact trainer who is able to make learning transfer both fun and highly efficient, I would have no hesitation in recommending her to deliver similar programs for other clients.

If your life was a tv show

If your life was a TV show would you watch it?

Most people are living in a drama they wouldn’t watch on TV. They don’t like the plot, storyline or sometimes even the other characters in the scene. They’re sick of playing a shitty bit part in someone else’s movie. Instead, they dream of escaping Groundhog Day and making a massive difference sharing their best with the world.

What if you had a superpower of your own? One that could help you slay the villain, rewrite the script to scale your success and give you an Oscar-winning performance so you can be bold, brave and brilliant.

In today’s environment, we need more than ever to think differently, bust through mental roadblocks quickly and produce great results consistently.

The mission, should you choose to accept it, is to: discover the character arch of where you are on your own hero’s journey including the ordeals to overcome and the superpowers you’ll need to do it. We'll explore what happens when the hero uses growth mindset tactics vs. fixed mindset habits.

You can produce the life you’ll love living because you are the inspirational hero.

Are you ready to Be Brilliant Now?

In this presentation we’ll set the scene so you can:

  • Make a huge gratitude shift for your own Hero's Journey and the plot twists you’ve faced so far
  • Experience a massive wake up call exploring how a fixed mindset keeps you safe
  • Unlock your growth mindset superpower so you can stop sabotaging your success and start celebrating your brilliance
  • Cool tools you can rely on that are fun, practical and easy to master plus you can use them to produce results immediately!

Best of all, you’ll leave feeling wowed and inspired by your own capacity to be brilliant now. 

"Design your vision, write your script, direct your focus and be the star of your life."

Julie-Anne Black’s unique viewpoint for taking charge of your success and happiness combines her 22 years experience on camera and behind the scenes as a production manager for the Sydney Olympic Games Opening Ceremony and top television producer for some of Australia’s favourite TV shows including Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Her expertise as an internationally accredited mindset, body language and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) trainer gives you the AAA backstage pass you need to transform the way you think, act and communicate.

I would like to thank you for speaking with warmth and enthusiasm at our April and August luncheons. You managed to touch an audience of ladies of all different ages who hold various positions within their respective Barry Plant office. We appreciate the effort it takes to connect with an audience in a short amount of time and you managed this on a professional and personal level. We have since received exceptionally positive feedback from the ladies who attended these luncheons. Thank you Julie-Anne for motivating us, helping us put things into perspective, encouraging us to let go of our “baggage” and brightening up the day with your wonderful smile which adds vibrancy to your work. Again, on behalf of the Barry Plant Professional Women in Real Estate network, thank you.

Most people are intrigued by the world of TV and Hollywood, even the naysayers. It sparks their curiosity. That’s why Julie-Anne combined her 22 years television experience with her expertise in mind mastery, body language and NLP to deliver this powerful and unique philosophy. Not only does it create a genuine buzz within your audience it’s also profoundly practical, non-threatening and self-guided. Imagine if your life was a TV show, would you watch it?

I believe learning is active not passive. That’s why I have designed creative ways to involve your audience so they can have maximum experience, a 'dress rehearsal' if you like of how practical, fun and easy to master the techniques are to implement in your daily life for in most cases instantaneous and long lasting results. It's also poignant to share that in most cases we will only have 40-60 minutes together so the more time we have together the more we can deep dive in the philosophies taught.
