I have been a trainer and speaker for nearly 30 years. But that’s only half the story!
Back in 1992 I represented Australia at the Barcelona Olympics in Water Polo. I was actually the Australian team goalkeeper for 10 years and awarded the Best International Goalkeeper Trophy in 1995. I also spent some time coaching other goalkeepers in the Australian squad.
I’ve also been in the circus! During high school I was a juggler, acrobat and even a clown in the Flying Fruit Fly Circus and yes, it was as much fun as it sounds. I also took up a training role to help develop the other performers – I was 15 at the time.
Using my life experiences to help audiences think and reflect
After studying journalism, sport science, psychology and a variety of other subjects, I went back to something that had been a running theme throughout my life to that point – the drive to help others through personal and professional development.
Since then I’ve been coaching, speaking, training and facilitating for professionals from hundreds of the world’s largest companies. I love helping people get their message across and seeing the results it brings.
You could say I’ve crammed a lot in to my life so far and I use all the amazing, eventful and challenging experiences I’ve had to deliver compelling keynotes that quite simply – make audiences sit up and take notice.
Guy Newman was a delight to work with and a stand-out favourite for our delegates. Guy engaged our audience from the outset – he made them laugh, made them cry and made them think differently. On top of this, he was very generous in speaking and socialising with our delegates before and after his presentation. Above and beyond!
