Joel de Cartert
Inspiration and Change
Joel is a renowned film maker and world-class storyteller with a life-changing story to tell. Featured recently on Channel 9's 60 minutes, he was born in the Philippines but became separated from his family in a busy marketplace at age five. Nearly 30 years on, having been adopted and raised by an Australian family, Joel embarked on what seemed like an impossible mission to track down his birth mother.

With virtually nothing to go on except knowing the date and location he was found, he undertook a journey that shows how sheer grit and determination can overcome even the most insurmountable odds.

Mark Mathews
Big wave surfer, inspirational speaker
While in Tasmania, fifteen feet in front of a cliff in cold, shark-infested waters, Mark hit a reef and instantly blacked out. Terror engulfed every inch of his being. Neck braced and hospital-ridden, he didn’t know if he could ever surf again. At that moment, he made a decision never to allow fear to overpower him again.

Obsessed with the relationship between personal growth, high performance and fulfilment, Mathews is on a mission: offer game-changing ways to adapt to stress and increase wonder in the lives of others. He has deconstructed, fine-tuned, and personalised emotion and resilience techniques to successfully strengthen one’s mindset and sustain long term performance. He exposes practical and tangible solutions on how to overcome our primal need for control and security and embrace the feelings of fear.
