About Nadine Champion
Nadine Champion is a truly inspiring keynote speaker drawing on her experiences as a martial arts Sensei (teacher), author and entrepreneur.
Dedicating thirty years of her life to studying martial arts and strengthening the mind, Nadine is a thought leader on courage, inner strength and resilience.
With a Gold Medal at the World Cup of Martial Arts and an undefeated record as a Title holding kickboxer, Nadine embodies the competitive edge. And as a woman in a traditionally male dominated arena, she has a unique insight into delivering under pressure and the importance of keeping a sense of humour.
Her colourful recollection of her Sensei’s Yoda-like wisdom includes reflections on how it can be applied both professional and personally to overcome any obstacle.
Nadine’s authenticity shines through with her life changing 10 Seconds of Courage message – a powerful call to action challenging each and every person to “change their thinking” in order to succeed. Her closing speech for TEDx Sydney 2015 is regarded as one of the most memorable of all time, with a packed audience rising to their feet in unison to applaud.
Described by high profile entrepreneur Naomi Simson as a “role model, teacher and guide”, Nadine’s “ability to show up and share that 10 seconds of courage is what it takes to get started on the toughest battle – and we all have them”.
