What others are saying

” Jodi is a mum who intentionally experiences life to the full. This makes her relatable to a wide range of people. I have found Jodi’s leadership presentations to be authentic, engaging and practical. She is a woman to seeks to lead herself first and to encourage other leaders from her own experiences and learning. Jodi is insightful and succinct in presenting the key elements of her topic.”
“She understands leadership within a framework that encompasses the Bible, listening to God, awareness of family and awareness of self. Her talks are ideally targeted towards women, especially mothers of young children seeking to serve God even in this season of their lives when it might feel impossible. I have seen Jodi incorporate practical ‘exercises’ into a presentation for fuller engagement with her audience.”

Former Managing Director, MOPS Australia

“Jodi speaks with intention and encouragement. She prompts listeners to grow and develop in a gentle manner, with the voice of one who is continually on a journey of self-leadership, with a desire for progress, but extending grace to herself and listeners for the moments that bring a halt. Jodi doesn’t wave at you from the summit, but reaches back a hand to help you take the next step up the mountain.”

About me

I’m Jodi (Jo) Koepke

I spend my days sharing words of encouragement for women who lead (in their homes, businesses or ministries), finding my way through the beautiful mess of parenting and relationships, and geeking out on technology. 

I am the Managing Director for MOPS Australia, training and supporting leaders from around Australia, New Zealand and Vietnam.

I am a writer as well as a speaker. My first book, “Stepping Up In Leadership: Reflections from the journey”, is available on my website, Amazon, Koorong online or on Kindle, iBooks and Nook.

I am also a self-leadership coach with Lead Different, heading up the development of a coaching program for teenagers.
