Biography

How do you inspire a large team of people aged 65 to 95 years old to embrace an outrageous goal of becoming competitive hip hop dancers and, in just eight months’ time, perform at the World Hip Hop Championships in Las Vegas? What do you do when they don't like hip hop, are resistant to change and aren't committed to the goal? Billie Jordan shares her leadership lessons and personal story to show that, with a focus on the end goal and the ability to change mindsets, anything is possible!

As the founder of the oldest hip hop dance group in the world, the Hip Op-eration Crew, Billie shows how she used her leadership skills, traumatic life experiences - including the deadly Christchurch Earthquake in 2011 to bring a renewed sense of purpose and joy to a group of strangers in her community.
 
Awards and accolades
Billie was awarded a Queens Honour in 2016, was New Zealand Woman of the Year in 2016/2017 and won the New Zealander of the Year award in the Local Hero category in 2015.
Film: She is the star of an award-winning feature documentary film Hip Hop-eration, which has screened in cinemas all over the world, and now Hollywood plan on making the story of her life into a movie.

Billie's story is unique, very engaging, impactful and truly inspiring. There are many laugh-out-loud moments and some tear jerkers too! Billie has spoken at prestigious events around the globe including Scotland, Canada and Australia and has delivered a Ted Talk to critical acclaim.
