Ideally, you want someone who’ll make everyone in the room sit up and take notice. You don’t want to hear awkward silences. You want to hear a tsunami of laughter ripple across the room … or a collective gasp and spontaneous clapping.

Five-time Olympian Natalie Cook will exceed your every expectation; she has an impressive track record when it comes to entertaining and inspiring an audience.

A tangible track record of success
As a sports motivational speaker, Natalie Cook has had tangible, quantifiable success. She’s excelled in her chosen sport at international level.

As a sports-loving nation, our Olympians are our heroes, our celebrities. They’re the role models we admire and want our kids to emulate. We can’t all stand on the podium and taste Olympic victory, but we can all be inspired by someone who has done just that many times over.
The very best sports motivational speakers aren’t all about sport
Maybe you’re hosting a business conference, a fundraiser or even a school group. You might be thinking that a sports motivational speaker isn’t for you or your particular audience. Keep thinking that and you might miss out on a truly inspirational speaker. No matter what type of success your audience is dreaming of, Natalie Cook has a message that will hit home and truly resonate, because it’s universally applicable to all areas of life, not just the sporting arena. She knows how to package her message in a way that is accessible to everyone.
A personal message carries more weight
The very best sports motivational speakers are able to reach out across a room, make eye contact and make a personal connection with every single person present. You want to your speaker to take each and every person in the audience on a journey of self-discovery. You want to equip them with the tools they need and the motivation to continue down the path of reaching their own full potential, be it in sport, in business or in life. Anyone can talk for an hour or two, but it takes a truly great sports motivational speaker to take it to the next level and make a truly personal connection with those listening. Reaching out and making that connection is just one of Natalie Cook’s greatest strengths as a speaker and presenter.
Skilful, engaging communication is the key
A quick Google search will reward you with the names of thousands of people claiming to be great sports motivational speakers. And sure, they may have achieved greatness and reached the pinnacle of sporting excellence in their field, but it doesn’t necessarily follow that they’ll be a great communicator or a skilful presenter. They could be as boring as bat poo!
Not Natalie Cook! One of the most dynamic, energetic sports motivational speakers, Natalie knows how to rev up an audience in the most surprising ways. Be prepared to be caught off-guard, to be delighted and to laugh out loud. Who ever said that being inspired had to be boring?
Authenticity is what sets the best sports motivational speakers apart from the rest
The very best sports motivational speakers are born, not made. They’re authentic, unique and stay true to themselves. They’re not trying to copy someone else’s style or be something that they’re not. Most of all, their message will resonate with everyone listening because of its authenticity. It will ring true. Natalie Cook will have your audience hanging on to every word because she speaks from the heart. She doesn’t gloss over the heartache, the sacrifices made or the thousands of hours of hard work she put into pursuing her dream of representing Australia at elite level. She instead takes it, warts and all, and uses it to show her audience that anything is possible with hard work, discipline and the motivation to succeed.
A great sports motivational speaker talks the talk … and walks the walk
The very best sports motivational speakers look the part. That’s because they continue to practise what they preach, even if their sights are now firmly set on goals beyond the sports field. If you want to be motivated and inspired, you want to listen to someone who has achieved far more than just sporting success. Someone who can show you the tools and the mindset necessary to succeed in anything in life. Someone who continues to push past obstacles to success in new fields of endeavour … and doesn’t just rest on their laurels.
A truly great sports motivational speaker doesn’t just have one or two of these qualities, they have all of them. It’s a unique combination of grit and determination, talent and spirit, that endears a speaker to an audience and makes them sit up and listen.
