Fiori Giovanni Travels from Melbourne, VIC

Fiori Giovanni


  • Change Management
  • Female Speaker
  • Inspirational
  • Motivational
  • Overcoming Adversity
  • Personal Development
  • Resilience
  • Social Responsibility

From the moment the whirlwind that is Fiori Giovanni hits the stage, she has her audience enraptured. At times laughing out loud, other times in tears and often deep in thoughtful silence as they travel an exciting and emotional journey that will change their lives.

Fiori’s extraordinary story is a route probably only a few other women in the world have travelled, but she tells it in a way that leaves her audience with the keys, tools, and attitudes that shape courage, resilience, real leadership and a shift in mindset.  Courage to tackle the changes they’ve dreamt about but for which they fear failure, Resilience to overcome challenges, Leadership to envision and define their goals and Mindset to shift from a victim to a victor.  In a nutshell, Fiori shares a potent formula that empowers others to overcome problems, both big and small.

All the above traits are something that Fiori has needed in massive amounts being born in a war-torn African and overcoming the challenge of a pubescent arranged marriage, and as a teenager being mandatorily subscripted into the army and clinging to life in a leaking boat loaded with refugees. She had the courage to survive and learn from these experiences to become a serial entrepreneur, a #1 best-selling author, media commentator, human rights activist, proud mother, and speaker.

While she’d experienced pain and loss on a devastating scale already, the worst was yet to come. In 2020, the unimaginable happened. She lost her beloved seven-month and half old daughter, Illen.  Fiori’s journey of grief led to her certification in Self-Directed Healing practitioner and Hypnotherapy Certificates.

Throughout her colourful career, she has built up a bank of knowledge, information, life experiences and strategies and this wasn’t any different for her. Fiori is the perfect example of how life is not about what happens in your life, rather, how you manage it. And, how a mastered mind can be harnessed, during the good times and bad.

She is also the owner of an online product hub for those seeking fulfilment, confidence and clarity through affirmations. Fiori believes affirmations are one of the most profound and effective ways to implement personal change. She owes her very survival to their potency. 

In addition to her best-selling memoir, Defy your Destiny, Fiori’s writing has been published in a book titled Letter to my 21-year-old self which will raise money for Sydney’s only daytime women’s refuge, Lou’s Place. Her letter will feature alongside letters by Oprah Winfrey, Collette Dinnigan, Lisa Forrest, Claudia Karvan, and more.

Fiori’s work has been published as an example of what is possible in a book called “It Is All Possible” by former world champion yachtsman Rob Hartnett.

Keynote Titles

  • Mindset
  • Resilience
  • Courage in Leadership


Fiori was the keynote speaker at our recent team offsite event. We focused on building a resilient mindset during times of adversity, with Fiori’s session kicking off our day. The team were incredibly moved by her story and inspired by the strength, determination and will she’s demonstrated throughout her life. Which is exactly what we were looking for in planning this event. Her unique ability to combine story-telling, audience engagement and tailored strategies for our MYOB team members to take on, made her session both memorable and impactful. Fiori is extremely professional, going over and above to deliver on our initial brief. She was wonderful to work with in the lead up to the event, offering to come in prior to the event to run through the tech, as there were some complexities due to it being a mix of in-person and virtual. She arrived an hour early on the day to ensure everything was ready and was flexible, even starting 30mins early when we decided to swap some sessions around. Would highly recommend Fiori for any type of event and look forward to working with her again in the future.
