Ambassador, Revivo Wellness Resorts (Global)Author, COURAGE – I have chosen life and life has chosen me. A personal journal about the power of courage to heal your life.

In January 2019 after being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer the following three (3) years saw her on a very different and unexpected journey, one of survival. Given the severity of her tumour, undergoing total reconstruction surgery, being diagnosed with malnutrition and being in the 1% of the population that have a toxic allergic reaction to chemotherapy and unable to complete treatment, her total remission was unexpected. Ros says, “my time with cancer, a divorce, and now dealing with the economic & emotional downturn of Covid-19 has been a privilege, it is not often we get an opportunity to learn and grow as a person on such a deep level.  I hope that by sharing my story others will be inspired to see that regardless of circumstances, anything is possible”.


Ros Banksia-Smith is a creative visionary, business & philanthropy project founder, and creative director of interior design commissions at a global level. She has always taken pride in being a “choreographer of space” but now she sees herself as a representative of a new wave of emerging women that believe anything is possible and instead of preparing to retire at 60+, she is taking on a whole new exciting chapter as a “choreographer of life & opportunity” as way to give back and impact the world for good.  Living globally, Ros is delighted to be leading the COURAGE retreat program that she says ‘introduces the freedom of a creative mindset to others, as a perfect prelude for influencing change, by inspiring the participants to see the potential of the power within themselves’.
