Inspiring Keynote Speaker

Julie Kortens is regularly invited to take to the stage at industry conferences and events, and to participate in panel discussions. Audiences love her unique approach of speaking from the heart and telling stories with self-deprecating humour and honesty.

With gravitas and humility, Julie tells laugh-out-loud stories from her life and career in facilities management and HR. She also talks about how to be a good leader and get teams to create and communicate better. Julie brings her stories to life, taking her audience on a journey with her. She aims to inform, keep the attention of everyone in the room, and make people laugh and smile.

Provocative and entertaining

“I have organised many conferences and many speakers over the last few years and I can honestly say that Julie has been one of the the best received of all of them. Informative, provocative and entertaining in equal measures, Julie really helped us to understand how we can develop a business partnership with FM departments by offering help, advice, information, listening to their needs and better understanding their priorities.”

– Thomas Palfreyman, MD, Urban Planters
