Award winning motivational speaker, business consultant, anti-knife crime campaigner, avid charity fundraiser, and author of best selling book ‘Still Standing’.

Natalie Queiroz MBE

In 2016 on a quiet Friday afternoon, on a pavement just yards from a busy suburban town centre, Natalie’s ‘safe’ middle-class world in which she was 8 months pregnant with her third child and about to start maternity leave from her executive role in the pharmaceutical industry completely blew apart.

So, what do you do when in a blink of an eye, everything you believed in and understood to be your ‘normal’ world is ripped away from you literally, and you are left fighting for your life at the hands of your ‘loving’ partner who left for work as normal that morning? Surviving one of the UK’s worst attempted domestic homicides was just the start of Natalie’s inspirational journey.

Facing the truth about her world, stopping herself from sinking when giving up would have been so easy, and redefining her life for a far more fulfilled and purposeful future forms the basis of Natalie’s talk. Never Give Up is Natalie’s mantra as well as always believing in going for the brighter future you really want.

Company director, TEDx speaker, international author, charity ambassador and now proud holder of the title MBE – For Services To Young People and Prevention of Knife Crime.

Natalie’s passion to help people overcome challenges and tough times, visualise and realise a better life no matter what is at the forefront of her work and life.

Her book, Still Standing, documents the before, during and the important rebuild after such a monumental life-shattering event – not only pulling life back together after horrific physical and emotional destruction but building a better, more empowered and rewarding life.

Still Standing, is now available in 6 countries across the globe – Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, has been translated into Estonian and hit top spots across different book charts here in the UK.

For anyone listening to her story, they will get a truly moving reminder that life can be pieced back together, no matter how bad the damage. Without a doubt, it will empower and inspire anyone who has ever faced true adversity to rise up and stand tall.

Motivational Speaking

With a story guaranteed to make all stop and listen, TEDx Speaker Natalie has astounded and inspired a wide range of audiences from various backgrounds, age groups and of varying size – from small intimate talks to large stage conferences. With a story so powerful, it has been shared on prime time TV shows – seeing Natalie interviewed on ITVs ‘This Morning’ and ‘Lorraine’ as well as national radio shows and shared in mainstream magazines – driving her book , ‘Still Standing’ to the top of various book charts.

No matter what audience, her key aim with every talk is to give hope and empowerment to all those that listen to her in addition to making every person in the audience realise that no matter how bad things get in life or how hard the unexpected may hit – you can get back from anything and make life even better.

Natalie shares her shocking story from before the horrifying attack, during it, through to the life changing aftermath with frank honesty and a mix of her own humour – something so vital in tackling such a hard hitting subject.

The odd tear may be shed, a sense of dumbfoundment, pure shock and possibly outrage will undoubtedly be felt in parts but a chuckle will suddenly take over and a sense of pure uplift sweeps over all as they learn about her fight back to be in the position she proudly stands today. She guarantees to leave her audiences believing that they really can achieve anything.

As Natalie walks her audience through her story, she shares the reasons how she managed to overcome such adversity – giving everyone practical ideas to implement in their own lives.
