Keynote Speaking

Hear how Matina cheated death, took command and showed pure courage while leading teams under fire during the Lebanon War and operations around the globe.

Matina’s stories of leadership, resilience and having the courage to see change as opportunity is transformative.

Audiences are captured from the first moment with enthralling frontline footage, and are then taken on journey that provides the opportunity to re-think perspective for a renewed sense of purpose.

‘Q&A’ then allows individuals the opportunity engage directly for a sense of even deeper engagement.

As Nicole from Commbank so eloquently put it, “It’s so inconceivable, yet I can see my story so clearly in Matina’s; she creates the extraordinary ability for ME to hear her story – and simultaneously SEE my story in hers. My perception is changed forever and I feel an inherent ‘call to action’ in this ‘awakening’ of my story.”

KEYNOTE THEMES

Leadership

"Authentic, values-based leadership often takes great courage."

Matina draws on her extraordinary experience of conquering one seemingly insurmountable leadership challenge after another, to help reframe our perspective on life.
In her relatable, girl-next-door style, Matina reminds us that it takes leaders who are courageous, and who have vision to lead their organisation in a direction where they may not be 100% certain how things will look on the other side.

RESILIENCE

“Even out of adversity can come incredible opportunities, so long as we have the courage to pursue them.”

Through courageous decision-making, Matina shares how she overcame almost inconceivable life and death situations, often in some of the harshest environments on earth. Always drawing out the learning, Matina shares how resilient organisations can be better equipped for everyday challenges – and major disruption – all while protecting our most valuable asset, our people.

CHANGE

“Create a purpose-driven culture that thrives through change.”

With the uncertainty that comes from the ‘fog of war’ comes the certainty of change.
With so many of us ‘change weary’, Matina reminds us that now, more than ever, we can be those leaders who know how to shift the team mindset from fearing and resisting change, to embracing it, and in doing so, creating a culture that thrives through change.
