Navigating the Pressures of Life

By Inspirational speaker Lorin Nicholson As I reflect back over a lifetime of experiences dealing with the significant challenges, stresses and pressures of blindness, I often wonder how and why some of us manage to not just survive, but thrive and prosper through such daunting adversity.  To live and function in what many would consider a normal life is often considered an amazing achievement.  Like the time 300 audience members clapped when I proved that I could do up my own shoelaces. ...More

Sleep Success

By Health and Wellbeing speaker Mark Bunn What do we generally think of when we think of business success? The latest productivity hacks, leadership skills, goal setting tools or communication strategies? Well, the latest science clearly shows that 'getting a good nights sleep' is now one of the biggest factors for not only our individual health but for the collective success of our business teams. A Deloitte Access Economics health report showed that 39.8 per cent of Australians don't get enough...More

Sleep - The Ultimate Performance and Wellness Hack

By Leadership and Performance Speaker Tony Wilson Sleep. It seems really simple, and yet most of us aren’t doing it right. Research shows that up to 65% of adults in Australia either don’t get enough sleep or get poor quality sleep. Stay awake longer than 18 hours and reaction speed, memory, problem solving and cognitive speed all start to suffer.  Work for 24 hours straight and you are 61% more likely to make mistakes on routine tasks, and 460% more likely to have a near-miss accident...More


Put Down Your Phone

Put Down Your Phone

By Mental Health speaker, Matthew JohnstoneI have to admit I sometimes I feel like bit of a walking contradiction. A couple of my books have been on meditation and mindfulness; two ‘best friend’ practices that keep my life sane, balanced and for the most part, calm.  If there was a Ying to my Yang it would have to be technology. I love it and loathe it equally. I have a website, an online shop and a blog I vaguely try to maintain, I also dabble in most aspects of social media. I...More

It\'s Just Too Hard

By business strategy keynote speaker Troy Hazard. It’s about this time of the year that you can feel the half way mark approach. It’s a time of reflection, a time of anxiety, and, for some, a time when we start to fear we are not going to get the things done this year that we would have liked to…. THIS is the moment in time when our New Years resolutions and goals go out the window as - it’s just too hard. Here are 4 things to help you power into the back end of the year,...More

Sleep - Quality Matters

    By Health and Wellbeing Speaker, Gretchen Lumsden Sleep is important throughout life because when we sleep the body repairs itself and restores energy ready of the next day. Another fact that is of interest it is when the brain stores memories.  Researchers have found that 7 -8 hours sleep is important for overall health and well- being.   Adequate good quality sleep makes a big difference to the way we feel during the day because sleep affects  our overall productivity...More

It\'s OK To Be Anti-Social

By business strategy keynote speaker, Troy Hazard Last week my family and I took a short 5-night vacation cruise around the Caribbean, and while we are seasoned cruisers, this one was different. We turned off the internet!...... I actually heard you gasp. Yes, we turned the Internet off for the entire trip. No data, no email, no text, no social media. We disconnected, to reconnect. And it was SO much fun! I felt like I was skipping school, like I’d run away from home, or like I was in an endless...More

Event Planners: Why Events Must Always Acknowledge Country

By motivational keynote speaker, Lucy Bloom. I attend a lot of events all over Australia as a professional speaker and I have noticed a trend. When events are hosted by government, they are always opened with a Welcome to Country from a local indigenous person or at least an Acknowledgement of Country from one of us blow-ins. However, outside schools, government departments and council events, this basic sign of respect for the traditional owners of the land is a bit hit and miss in the event...More

Be Prepared to Leave

By Motivational Speaker, Rob Redenbach As important as it is to consider the views and opinions of others, it is vital to pay attention to your own moral compass. If it hasn’t happened already it’s only a question of time before you’ll be faced with a professional dilemma, when the people you work alongside and interact with will be following a script you find unacceptable. That script could be a process, a pattern of behaviour, or a way of doing things. It might be unsafe, or...More

Starve Your Distractions, Feed Your Focus

By Stacey Currie All I had when I started in business was my chair off the hard rubbish, a mobile phone, a green camping table and a laptop.  I didn’t have fancy brochures, fancy email designs, business cards, heck I didn’t even have the machinery to print the jobs I had won. But I managed to make $300,000 in sales in my first year of business. When I say I started from scratch, I really mean it. But what I did have was a razor-sharp focus. I am so glad that social media wasn’t...More
