Tim Gard

Tim Gard

Motivational Speaker

Tim Gard has been on a life-long quest for laughter and discovered along his journey that we all smile and laugh in the same language. Laughter unites us and creates a common bond that transcends potential barriers and boundaries. Babies don’t need to learn to laugh but adults need to be reminded of the importance of positive laughter and the power it can have in our personal and professional life. As an internationally recognised authority on stress reduction through humor and conflict resolution, Tim has spoken at over 2000 events globally from Texas to Tasmania. Tim says that stress isn’t what happens to us, stress is based on our perception of what happens to us. Laugh and learn with Tim how to actively, positively change your perception to create your own reality and fight stress with humor. Anyone can harness the power of laughter as a skill using Tim’s shortcuts, tips and easy to remember and hard to forget techniques.

Why Tim?

Stephanie Lorenzo

Stephanie Lorenzo

Project Futures

With a Bachelor of International Communication from Macquarie University held in her hand, Stephanie Lorenzo didn’t start her career planning to start a charity. It was a chance encounter with a book about sex trafficking, and a life-changing trip to Cambodia that left her asking ‘how could this be real’?

In that moment Stephanie decided to unlock purpose, and play a bigger game. That game was to create a movement that would help facilitate the end of global human trafficking and slavery. For many combatting the worlds third largest crime is a mountain to big to climb. For Stephanie, that mountain was too big to Ignore. In 2009 fusing a passionate vision, with a purpose driven action plan, Stephanie founded a non-for profit organisation called Project Futures.

Mike Worsman

A Million Smiles

Mike Worsman has risked his life in warzones, quit his job, sold his house and invested every ounce of his time and money to inspire people to find and pursue what makes them smile. Why? He believes if every person were to concentrate on what truly makes them happy, then many of the problems we face would disappear. From poverty and war, to climate change and family breakdown, Mike says these are merely an indication that our current focus and reality needs re-directing. In 2012, Mike founded ‘A Million Smiles’, an organisation dedicated to sharing stories about people, places and ideas that can inspire people to be truly happy.
