JoAnna Ferrari's Biography

JoAnna Ferrari is ‘The Transition Specialist’. Joanna has transitioned and reinvented herself over 21 times during her life. She has transitioned from child to entrepreneur at 15, from sciences to entertainment and model at 21, from sales to executive at 34, from executive to international speaker/author at 38, moving her life from Chicago to Australia culminating in her most significant transition in 2013 from male to female. It was during this transition JoAnna had to draw on all her… courage, beliefs, survival instincts and fortitude as she went from broke and depressed back to trusted executive coach, author and speaker.

 

JoAnna is not only savvy about transitions and performance coaching, she is a wickedly sassy storyteller. Her stories are funny, bold inspiring adventures of personal experiences that are provocative and memorable. More importantly, they move an audience to feel and embrace, not just hear her message. She calls this “The JoAnna Ferrari Experience”.

 

JoAnna is no stranger to the seminar and personal development arena. Since 1989, she has been working as a sales manager, sales coach, sales trainer or consultant with various groups selling live and video-based seminars, as well as personal development products and coaching services. She has assisted other companies worldwide in selling personal development, corporate training and seminars.

 

To say JoAnna has a diverse and accomplished business background would be understating the breadth and depth of her experience. A small snapshot her career so far:

 

·                At 32 she became the Director of a 300-seat call centre

·                By 38 had built and owned her own telephone marketing centre

·                Travelled the world internationally training sales teams

·                Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for Nightingale Conant (a world leader in personal development training) where she developed their inside sales initiatives and also developed several coaching programs for them

·                CEO of Anthony Robbins business in Australia

·                Consulted to Telcoinbox and helped grow the business from $8 million to $80 million in three years

·                Consulted and trained business in over 140 industries and trained sales teams in 5 countries

·                Coached and trained CEO’s

·                Spoken to audiences from 10 to 10,000 people


JoAnna lives by an idea that many people only give lip service to “You can be, do and have anything you wholeheartedly put your attention to”. But to truly live this way, you must be willing to explore, experiment and express yourself in brave new ways. This single idea has been the key in her reinventing herself and in transforming businesses, teams and individual clients. She has used the ideas she teaches to become a highly successful executive in numerous businesses, to consult to businesses in over 140 different industries, to train sales teams in five countries, to become a highly requested and referred performance coach for top executives and to transition her life and her gender.

 

What Is A Transition?

Transition by its very definition means; to change from one situation, form, or state to another. It includes causing someone or something to transition as well. Transitions are considered highly undefinable due to the high number of variables that can influence a transition. What helps make a transition more predictable, reliable, organised and satisfying is when you understand the type of transition you are in. There are three major types and two minors. There are also three phases to a transition. When you know what kind of transition you are in, if it’s a major or a minor and what phase you are in, you can better affect the variables and therefore the process, outcome or both of a transition. When you can perform a transition instead of enduring or getting stuck in it, you can then enjoy and understand better how powerful an opportunity transitions present.

 

Why Engage JoAnna To Speak?

All of JoAnna’s solutions and strategies are based on years of studies she has spent in cultivating her skills in leadership, negotiation, mediation, behavioural biology, human engineering, neurosciences and solutioneering, which is solution engineering. Her presentations are suitable for executive and leadership teams, sales teams, organisations and associations, any group that needs to know how to embrace and excel in making a change for the better.

 

JoAnna teaches audiences that there are three major and two minor transitions you can expect to face all throughout your life. She has become a master transitional and performance coach and is called on to help people come aware of where they ‘honestly’ are in their life. As she puts it “People rarely know how to activate the energy to start a transition”. They also don’t know how to recognise the habitual thinking or actions that has them trapped in a transition.

JoAnna helps audiences realise some simple adaptable concepts that make transitions easier and more enjoyable, then gives them the keys to making the changes sustainable and duplicable.  

 

Her mission is “to change the world’s mind” by showing people transitions are not as scary as they think and that with just a little courage and curiosity, you can transform your own life into a satisfying and splendid experience you are proud to own.
