Goals, Obstacles and Transitions: Having What It Takes


How do people who seemingly smash through obstacles do it?

What drives people to achieve seemingly impossible goals?

How do those who bloom and prosper at the end of a major life transition do it?


Join us to hear Jade Edmistone, Commonwealth Games and World Championships medallists, share her story.  We’re sure that everyone attending, will take away some inspiration for dealing with goals, obstacles and transitions in your life.

Jade Edmistone is not only an Australian Swimmer, Entrepreneur, and Author. She is a sought after Motivational Speaker who knows a lot about the above.  At the age of 8, she joined her local swim club, where her natural affinity and love for the water developed. 

It wasn't until the age of 16 that Jade started making headway in the world of swimming, however after the tragic loss of a close friend and her resultant battle with depression, she quit at just 18 years of age.

Two years on in 2002, aged 20, Jade returned to the pool once again and set her sights on becoming the fastest women in the world. With exceptional focus and drive, Jade's goal was achieved when she broke her first World Record in 2004, becoming the fastest woman ever over the 50m breaststroke. Jade continued her dominance over sprint breaststroke, breaking 5 World Records and winning 3 World Titles between 2004 and 2006, before retiring in 2009.

After a lengthy battle with serious mental health issues since retirement, Jade, a mother of 2 beautiful daughters, had to fight her way back to health as she navigated her difficult transition from elite sport to 'normality'. Co

We hope you can join us to share Jade’s story and take away some valuable tools for helping deal with issues in your own lives, or in the lives of others close to you.
