Tony is an accomplished facilitator and coach. He is passionate about developing influential, authentic speakers who are able to engage every audience - large or small. Tony relishes his opportunities to facilitate groups and is comfortable coaching at all organisational levels. He has experience in training corporate teams, government departments, NFP and SME. Whilst Tony can bring the most out of participants at all levels of expertise, he has had outstanding results in transforming the communication style of executives who veer towards introversion; CFO, legal, operational.
Tony’s background is rich with diversity; business owner, facilitation, coaching, training, key-note speaking, client services director in learning and development, an international career as a professional actor, sales management, business development, financial services, IT, business analysis and retail. With such a deep understanding of behavioural development and with a significant number of performances at an elite level under his belt, Tony understands the complexities in high-stakes communication.
Tony’s coaching and facilitation are designed around the specific objectives of every client. He attributes much of his success to the quality of his listening; in the consulting phase as well as delivery. Tony believes the ability to listen effectively allows us to ‘hold our space’, to pitch our messages at the heart of the matter and to bring an understanding to the complexity that exists in human-to-human communication. Whilst there is a meaningful element of strengths-based development in his work Tony regards his coaching and facilitation as largely ‘skills-based’, meaning his programs are designed to equip participants with a ‘practical toolkit’ that can be utilised throughout their career as a communicator.
