Home / Speaker

I am a storyteller at heart and have had a great pleasure of being invited to many events around the world to talk with others about my passions in life.


Motivational talks

I have worked with many organisations across 3 continents to deliver 30-40 min talks about various topics that aim to give their teams insight, hope and enthusiasm. I tell stories that are based on the science of Positive Psychology, which allows them to draw their own conclusions as to what they can do to tap into their potential.


Here are some of the testimonials from my clients


“Uplifting, inspiring and insightful are some of the words I would use to describe Jolanta’s keynote address”

Nicky O’Brien


“The first thing that strikes you about Jo is her passion, energy and deep understanding of her subject”

Joe Sweetman


“Jolanta made a lasting impression with her extraordinary and positive attitude, her enthusiasm, her knowledge and her ability to leave a lasting impact.”

Pat Hennessy


My motivational talks for organisations are managed by A-speakers agency.
