Martina Navratilova's official speaker topics inlude: 

The Winning Mindset – With 18 Grand Slam singles titles to her name, Martina knows a thing or two about winning. Her respectable string of victories on the court, many of which amounting to hundreds of weeks undefeated, are credited to her determination, endurance and self-belief, all topics of her speeches. Martina shares with audiences the mindset she employed to win time and time again.

High-Performance Teams – Martina held 237 undefeated weeks in the doubles, a testament to her position as the world number 1 in the sport. Such success could only come from high-performance teamwork, which created her high-performance team. Martina commonly discusses with audiences the strategies needed to nurture a top-class team, including communication and leadership.

Gender Equality – As one of the most famous female tennis players ever to live, Martina has become a role model to future female athletes across the globe. With every victory under her belt, she has risen through the ranks of a male-dominated sport to earn her place as one of the world’s greatest tennis players. Martina inspires audiences at events to harness the power of female potential, and strive for equality.

LGBT+ Rights – Martina is an openly gay athlete, and so has battled with discrimination and homophobia since the 1980s. She is an advocate for gay rights, and has been honoured with several equality awards for her highly influential work. When booked for events, she teaches corporate audiences the importance of inclusivity in the workplace.
