His speeches are a captivating account on the power of teamwork, with rich insight, honesty, humility, and humour, blended with an image based presentation that compliments his story, bringing the entire journey to life.

Anthony’s thought-provoking sessions uplift the hearts and minds of all listening. What is your superpower?


Anthony has now developed a longer interactive 90mins session.

Consisting of 60 to 70mins speech, Anthony talks through the two voices many people have in their imagination. The ‘Dreamer’ voice that always wants the best for us and the ‘Puller-backer’ voice that tries to talk us out of ideas.

He invites members of the audience on stage to step out of their comfort zones and to follow the Dreamer voice to share something that makes them proud of themselves, something they have overcome, reasons for why they chose their profession or simply a thank you to someone that has helped them along their journey.

Creating a safe space to interact, the sessions have proven to be incredibly inspirational and work well for those organisations looking for slightly longer sessions
