Talking Points

10 Seconds of Courage

In '10 seconds of courage' Nadine outlines the strategies for 'facing your fear', understanding how 'strength comes from the mind' and enabling others to be strong. Nadine also addresses the highly symbolic 'it doesn't hurt less if you close your eyes' principle, the importance of being prepared to take risks and fail; and the '10 seconds of courage' principle.

Five Keys to Winning

The key factors in winning a fight relate to most of the battles we face in life, whether professional or personal. Being well prepared, truly knowing how badly you want to win, deciding what you're prepared to do, recovering from a knockdown and being a strong finisher, are all crucial elements of winning.

Changing Your Thinking

'Changing Your Thinking' provides practical tools for improving how you think and feel about yourself and the way you make decisions and therefore live your life.

Nadine illustrates that fighting is 90% psychological: as is success in many arenas. She shows how lessons learnt in the ring translate into examples of how we can succeed with the right mindset and training.

The Workshop Outline

Nadine’s passion is teaching people to harness their own incredible mental strength by providing easy to perform exercises that stay with participants for life. Having spent decades learning her craft from a Master instructor, Nadine provides both a fantastic fun physical participation exercise but also a profound mental and emotional experience. Her goal is to make each person a better, braver version of themselves both professionally and personally.

The main aim of each workshop is to physically experience the key concepts of the keynote presentation such as courage, self-belief, perseverance, determination, resilience and team work. A versatile and adept instructor, she can tailor a workshop to deliver the specific message you would like participants to receive.

Nadine is a rare teacher who offers easy to learn, simple (and often hilarious) instruction that utilises everyday movements which people already know how to do- such as pointing at someone or closing their car door. As a martial arts teacher with 30 years experience and a fully certified and insured personal trainer/ group exercise instructor with Fitness Australia, Nadine delivers a highly professional and engaging workshop experience safely tailored to the physical capacity of your group.

From starting the day at your conference with a fun group boxing workout on the beach, to a boardroom self defence workshop, training with Nadine is an experience that will leave your team truly inspired.

Feedback
Firstly I wanted to thank you for a truly unique experience. I was very moved by your story and think that above being one of the most courageous and toughest individuals I have ever met, you are also the most genuine. It was very inspiring to hear your story, and yet you spoke with such humility that I found it very grounding. Thank you for making myself and others in the group realise that we probably don’t have big enough dreams, as well as the power of your inner voice and the need to remind ourselves of all the positive things we have to offer. I now think about both of these points daily and can already tell its having an impact on my life. Monsanto Australia & New Zealand

You are a credit to the human spirit and power of the mind. It was an absolute pleasure to be involved in your presentation. The opportunity you gave me reinforced the benefits of "changing your thinking" to adapt to the situation you are faced with. Whether it be business, sport or relationships "changing your thinking" can enable you to get through the most challenging situations life can throw at you. Today I am a stronger person than I was yesterday, thanks to you.

Nadine was brilliant in engaging all the staff from the college in the story of her life, her challenges and her accessible strategies to maximise her successes. Her willingness to also integrate the key strategic messages for the college this year provided us with an awesome start to our year. Many of the staff immediately started to incorporate her ‘language’ into their work and to see Nadine’s phrases, on posters within the classrooms being used by teachers by week 2, was very affirming.

Nadine went down very well with our group - she came in during a challenging part of the day (back end of the afternoon), where a lot of the team was already drained from a day’s worth of content. She well and truly restored our energy levels with a highly entertaining, engaging and energising block of content (which was totally on point), reading the team expertly and adjusting her style, tone and delivery to bring us all on the journey with her

For the first time ever, we have incorporated an inspirational speaker into the Conference Agenda for health information management professionals. We were lucky to secure Nadine Champion through Saxton Speakers and we can’t thank them enough. It was a breath of fresh air, incredibly motivational with so much food for thought for everyone. Nadine is a fabulous and charismatic presenter with a key message that resonates with many. We all need ‘10 Seconds of Courage’ quite often while on our life adventure. We got a lot of positive feedback from the delegates how they enjoyed this motivational talk by Nadine and left feeling inspired for bigger and better things in their lives. When a member of the audience broke the wooden board, the cheer was so loud. I would like to thank Nadine from the bottom of my heart for this wonderful experience she treated our Conference with.
