Keynote speaker Billie Jordan is a true inspiration to many. She’s had a life filled with ups and downs, and now Hollywood is planning to make her life into a blockbuster movie. She is the founder of The Hip Op-eration Crew™ - a hip hop dance crew consisting of senior citizens aged 73 to 98 years old. Her positive energy and engaging speaking style means she is one of the most popular speakers in New Zealand.

Billie Jordan has experienced an abusive childhood and repeated trauma in the deadly Christchurch Earthquake. She survived these terrible periods in her life, and has now dedicated her life to working with the elderly in a fun and motivating way. She uses her past and present to motivate the elderly to never give up and keep living and dreaming. Billie has previously worked in marketing, PR and communication as well as trained as a medic in the New Zealand peacekeeping force.

The idea of The Hip Op-eration Crew started when Billie found herself fearing death when she suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after her traumatic childhood and near-death experience in the earthquake. She noticed that many of her elderly neighbors were fearing the same and instead of living life in fear why not go out dancing and having fun? Billie taught herself how to dance and gave her elderly neighbors the goal of being ready to perform at the World Hip Hop Championships in Las Vegas in just eight months time. That was in 2013 and today, it is not just a crew but a dance academy.

Billie Jordan is well-known in New Zealand and was crowned NEXT magazine New Zealand Woman of the Year in October 2016 and awarded New Zealander of the Year in the Local Hero category in 2015. In 2016, she was recognized by Her Majesty the Queen with an MNZM (Member of the NZ Order of Merit). She has also delivered a well-received TEDx Talk.

With Billie Jordan’s impressive resume and background, her keynotes cover everything from leadership to overcoming obstacles and teamwork to dancing and having a positive attitude. She’s inspirational, motivational and a true star.
