A magician, an army sniper, a globe trotting TV cameraman walk into a bar...

No joke! I've been all three. The simple truth is I was not gifted in any of them. I learned that hard work and resilience and attitude beats talent. I learned every workplace is a university or a prison and I held the keys. I help leaders get this message to the people they lead.

Creating Magic Moments

'Magic Moments' are aha moments. This series of keynotes takes leaders from confusion to clarity using emotionally compelling storytelling, audience pleasing magic and strategy underpinned with science. They 'see' the possibility of simpler solutions to nagging workplace problems.

Untold Secrets

Why do some lead effortlessly and others struggle just to follow? Julian observed people, from Prince to Pauper, during his 25 years travelling the world as a TV cameraman and success leaves clues. You discover in 45 mins what it took Julian a quarter century to learn.

Five Dollar Solutions

Big dollars are being spent on improving productivity and engagement. Julian cheekily asks leaders, 'how's that been working out for you so far?' Could there be $5 solutions to these billion dollar problems? Fresh thinking and strategy for disillusioned leaders.

Biggest Magic Secret

Why do magicians never reveal their secrets? They know that what’s rare is valuable. What’s rare in the workplace these days is the right attitude. The audience makes the connection between their attitude and their career ambitions. Now for real magic: how they can turn a negative work situation into a positive one.


Make your event engaging

"I don't think we have ever had such an entertaining and educational feature at any previous sessions. The most impressive point is that each of our attendees could take something practical away that they could use on a daily basis in their workplace." Adam Westerink- Australian Institute of Radiography

Let's talk about engaging your audience

Being unhappy at work is not a life sentence

If you have lost your sense of hope and opportunity in your job then know this ... you’re not alone. Globally people feel deflated at work. There’s a mismatch between what employees hope for and what  jobs can deliver. There's a lot of frustration that things aren't better.

Problem is frustration often looks like the wrong attitude. Many employees are self sabotaging opportunities right at their fingertips as they stumble on, feeling  unrecognised, unappreciated, unheard.

The good news is attitude - the way you approach life and work - can be rekindled and forged into a tool that works for you, not against.

The right attitude is rare these days… and what’s rare becomes valuable. This book shows you how to become valuable, in the process elevating yourself from demanding to in demand.

This book shows you how to reclaim your worth. 

Find out how you can stand-up, get noticed and get back in control of your hopes and ambitions.

As Alvin Toffler said ...'If you don't have a strategy then you're part of someone else's strategy'

Wake up, Wise Up, Step Up


This is the strategy that has taken me on a career ride of no regrets. I have refined this strategy over decades. Learn it and you will see opportunity you've been blind to in the job you have and you will learn how to use the job you've got to get the job you want. 

I'll work with you, one on one ... in person and online.

Team training sessions ... they lift themselves up to play the bigger game they are capable of.
