Gary Bertwistle has always had a passion for innovation and creativity. His career has spanned the retail, music, media, corporate education and radio industries. Gary’s drive comes from having people and organisations think differently to generate new ways of doing things.
As a thought leader in innovation and creativity, Gary has helped companies, teams and individuals in companies of all sizes, in all industries and categories, to look at how they currently do things and address what needs to change in order for them to think differently and maximise their potential. He is often called upon when companies or individuals lose their mojo.
Through easy to understand, fun, interactive speeches and sessions, he presents to a wide variety of clients in the areas of creative thinking, mojo, marketing, strategic facilitation, and innovation to improve performance and help individuals be their best. He has built his reputation helping companies and leaders unlock great ideas.
In 2002 Gary opened Australia's first ever creative thinking venue at Fox Studios in Sydney. His venue is now used by some of the biggest corporations in the country for creative thinking, meetings, seminars and training sessions. Gary has published five books; 'The Keys to Creativity', 'Who Stole My Mojo?', 'What Made You Think of That?', 'The Vibe' and 'My Dad's Got Mojo'.
Gary is also the co-founder of one of Australia's leading cycling foundations which raises money in an effort to cure cancer. The foundation has now raised well over a million dollars in donations and many millions of dollars in publicity since its inception in 2007.
He is also the founder of a corporate fundraising day called the Day of Inspiration which gathers together keynote speakers, entertainers and performers in Sydney for a one day event in front of a corporate crowd to raise awareness and funds towards the curing of cancer.
He's won the TEC Speaker of the Year Award in both 2007 and 2008 and is renowned for his passion and drive in helping people to think differently about their life, family, business and Mojo.
