A Unique Speaker

I'm a career reinvention expert. I love it. It's not something I read about in a book. I earned my SMARTS by being an army sniper, a globe trotting TV cameraman, a magician, an online entrepreneur, a speaker/author ... and I'm not finished yet.

"I don't think we have ever had such an entertaining and educational feature at any previous sessions. The most impressive point is that each of our attendees could take something practical away that they could use on a daily basis in their workplace." Adam Westerink- Australian Institute of Radiography

Being unhappy at work is not a life sentence

If you have lost your sense of hope and opportunity in your job then know this ... you’re not alone. Globally people feel deflated at work. There’s a mismatch between what employees hope for and what  jobs can deliver. There's a lot of frustration that things aren't better.

Problem is frustration often looks like the wrong attitude. Many employees are self sabotaging opportunities right at their fingertips as they stumble on, feeling  unrecognised, unappreciated, unheard.

The good news is attitude - the way you approach life and work - can be rekindled and forged into a tool that works for you, not against.

The right attitude is rare these days… and what’s rare becomes valuable. This book shows you how to become valuable, in the process elevating yourself from demanding to in demand.

This book shows you how to reclaim your worth. 

Find out how you can stand-up, get noticed and get back in control of your hopes and ambitions. 

"As the leader of a business it was great to see my team so engaged with a presentation which asked the hard questions about personal accountability and empowering staff to take ownership of their decisions ...We all got so much from the session"

Mark Everingham
Managing Director Personal Risk Professionals Pty Ltd

"Your presentation hit the mark to an audience that needed to hear that it's ok to make mistakes and accepting personal responsibility will unlock opportunities. You had their rapt attention."

Greg Tait
Ready For Work Project Coordinator

"Julian helped me to get my audience to really 'hear' my message. He unpicked what I had brought to the session and together we created a presentation so much clearer, more engaging and impactful. If you want to be better at communicating and presenting on video or stage then I highly recommend working with Julian."
