From corporate and leadership training, special guest cameos, keynote addresses on health and wellness, failure and resilience, to school talks and charity event appearances, (she even plays golf!) you too can book Nat to speak at your next event and give attendees something to talk about long after her mouth stops moving.

Through her authentic, lively and matter-of-fact speaking style, Nat knows how to connect, motiv8 and inspire an audience by sharing her amazing insights and transformative life experiences.

Over the past 20+ years Nat has helped thousands of people achieve what they thought was impossible, and she can help you and your business too!

Nat’s background as a professional beach volleyballer, published author, business woman, mother and public figure, coupled with her immense talent for public speaking has earned her the right to be recognised as one of the very best motivational speakers in the world.



Motivational, eye opening, engaging and authentic are the best words I can think of to describe Natalie Cook’s speaking style. Having worked with her for years, I can undoubtedly say she is a true gem. She inspires with her stories of perseverance and commitment while keeping her audiences grounded in the reality of today’s business world. One of the best I have ever had the pleasure to work with.

Andrew Morawski, Senior Vice President and General Manger @ Oracle

“Natalie put together a magnificent presentation for our entire sales force at a recent Personal Growth Day we held and we are sincerely thankful and grateful for the learning's our team received. I find it invaluable to have true champions, who have proven to be consistent performers in their own right, speaking about what it takes to perform consistently at a championship level, both physically and mentally. Many speakers are people who talk about what you should do, whilst Natalie's presentation spoke about how she actually did it. It is no surprise Natalie has been rated as one of Australia's most successful sportspeople, and she most definitely had a profound affect on our sales team. Natalie is an outstanding communicator who is able to have a natural and immediate connection with anyone and who does so incredibly effectively.”

Andrew Bell, Ray White, Surfers Paradise, CEO

Laura Robinson, Tourism & Programs Manager for Adelaide Oval

Natalie Cook is simply AWESOME! I highly recommend Nat for Keynote, MC and panel speaking engagements. As an event manager I have had the pleasure of putting Nat’s skill’s to work in front of a variety of audiences and she never disappoints. Nat has a rare ability to relate to the entire audience whether they’re receptionists or the CEO, Nat finds a way to engage. She is the consummate professional, combining her high performance mindset with a sharp business savvy to help clients deliver desired outcomes. She will connect with the organisation and participate in achieving outcomes beyond expectations….bringing with her an energy that will lift any group to greater heights.

It’s clear to see why you are such a winner and your talk revealed with clarity how others can do it too. Your clarity, sense of humour, willingness to push buttons and stories touched everyone to the point where they all set themselves goals for the year. Truly inspirational. Thank you."
