Toni is a former festival and conference director, filmmaker and the author of two books. In 2006 she was the subject of a heartwarming episode of ABC’s Australian Story called ‘Let There Be Light.

We engaged Toni to facilitate an interactive keynote presentation about ‘Employee Wellbeing’. She delivered a very engaging and memorable segment, which had our staff up and dancing in no time at all. Toni was down to earth, professional and hilarious! Our staff are still quoting lines from her yellow car analogy! I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
