Kat John is electric! She lead a development session on ‘choice’ with a group of top talent leaders at lululemon. The session was totally engaging from beginning to end and really took the team on a journey.

From meditation, authentic personal shares and deep reflection to hilarious storytelling and dancing to ‘Proud Mary’, the group were captivated. I was personally grateful for the vulnerability Kat showed and how she created a space for people to feel ok, not to be ok all the time. We celebrated our human-ness and through that built such a strong connection.

Absolute Legend.

Kat John

My hope is to empower you to become responsible for your own life, addressing the areas that are calling out for transformation — not waiting until your health, relationships and overall happiness is going down the toilet.

Through sharing my story of pain to power and the steps I took to turn my life around, my intention is for you to realise that YOU ARE the power to change your experience of life. That what you’re looking for isn’t in pills, riding yourself off on weekends, depending on others to make you happy or accumulating material items to full empty voids.

My speaking and facilitation events are guaranteed thought provoking and heart opening experiences. It’s a tough love, truth bomb approach that aims to get you a little uncomfortable to inspire change. Ultimately you’ll broaden your awareness and understanding of yourself, and take inspired action.

My mission is to wake people up to their potential and see them living beyond their mental limitations. I envision the human race coming back home to who they are, creating meaningful, fulfilling and incredible lives, and treating one another with respect, dignity and kindness.

A big task you might say? Possibly, but I’m sticking to my guns.

I have been fortunate to have worked with many leading corporates, schools and brands including JLL Property & Investment, Holden, Loreto Mandeville Hall, Sacre Coeur, Lululemon, NGV, Run Melbourne, Womens' Health and many others. Below you’ll find the major topics I speak about.

Visualisation, Emotion and Action

Our thoughts have direct impact on our emotions, and our emotions are the fuel for how we behave, act, interact and communicate. The quality of our thoughts will determine how we feel and act, either creating a life we love, or despise. Understand how Kat uses meditation/visualisation as optimal brain food to deliberately produce high quality emotions and outcomes in her business, relationships and as a step mum.

Gold For Your Gold Despite Limiting Beliefs

The unconscious mind has three motives - to keep you in safe familiar territory, to protect you from danger and to operate from needing to know "how it is". If anything presses against the unconscious motives, self sabotage, resistance and defensiveness plays out. This is when the dreams inside our hearts are wasted leading to miserable, dissatisfied and unfulfilled lives. Kat explains what it takes to master the unconscious and what needs to happen to live outside your comfort zone so you can go for gold.

Self Responsibility

Blaming others masks our shame because deep down we know that no one is responsible for how our lives are turning out except us. Find out how Kat took self responsibility at the age of 24 when her health, relationships, work and life was spiralling out of control. Honesty, courage and using the power of choice for the betterment of herself and those around her were key, and you might find some gold nuggets in her approach to getting comfortable with up levelling yourself.

From Pain to Power

Kat's triumph story from chronic nerve pain, depression, addiction to pain killers,  and brain surgery, to using the power of her mind to overcome and outgrow perceived limitations is a message for the world to hear. Once a victim, now a victor, Kat shares her winning formula to constantly shattering small minded beliefs and creating a life definitely worth living.


Kat connected to the group on a personal level, detailing how she has used positive visualisation and creating goals to overcome all obstacles that stood in front of her.

Kat was able to cater to our athletes of all ages, creating a strong connection and inspiring them to be the best they can, both in and out of the water. I would highly recommend Kat for any High Performance sports looking to educate their athletes on the importance of mental health.
