Present with Passion and Purpose.
- Team Building
During successful and parallel careers in theatre, business and learning & development, Tony saw many people who were struggling to communicate effectively with groups, even one-on-one. He set up Passion and Purpose in 2014 offering his unique combination of skills and experience to unlock the chains that keep so many people from being successful communicators.
Tony says communication isn’t rocket science, but it is a science. He teaches the ‘performance science’, the fundamental elements that create connection and engagement, and how to use them in all your communications.
Tony delivers tailored workshops for groups, and one-one-one coaching. He believes everyone has the potential to be an excellent communicator, even those who find it terrifying. Tony will show you why nerves and fear occur, and how to turn them to your advantage.
Tony works with people of all skill and experience levels, from novice speaker to expert, helping them wow their audience, and make successful presentations and pitches. He’s worked with many clients, including government, corporate, not-for-profit, executives, established and emerging business leaders.
Tony combines the creativity of the theatre with a deep understanding of contemporary business practice. He shares his own journey and the lessons he learned as a professional actor, facilitator, coach, corporate relationship builder and business development specialist. He’s worked in the financial sector, IT, business analysis and consultancies.
Tony graduated from the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, where he was taught by global leaders in the field of public performance. He also holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of New South Wales, a Certificate IV in Assessment and Workplace Training, and a Certificate in Organisational Coaching.
Tony has worked extensively on stage, television and radio. He’s an entertaining and engaging speaker, with a wealth of experience and insight to share.
