We're expected to be on video. Yeech! Could I ever be a confident video presenter? Be inspired by Julian’s about-face journeys from behind the lens to in front of it, from stutterer to speaker, from shy to shine.

Julian Mather Speaker Bios

He's traveled far but his longest journeys have been from behind the camera to in front of it. From stutterer to professional speaker. From shy to shine.

Now he shows you how to overcome the fear of video in 7 days and become the confident video presenter you want to be.


Speaker Bio 300 words

For as long as he could remember Julian Mather wanted to be a photojournalist. Then he got sidetracked. While army sniper seemed like a good idea at the time, he found the telescopic sights of his rifle were starting to look more and more like a movie camera, and so he fell in love with film-making.

So began his twenty-five years as a globe-trotting TV cameraman for ABC TV, BBC, National Geographic and Discovery Channel. He was awarded the highest distinction for cinematography by The Australian Cinematographers Society and entitled to use the letters A.C.S. after his name.

His was a ringside view of life where he met and filmed some of the world’s greatest, most famous and even the notorious; travelled the world; witnessed the highs and lows of human nature and had his own ideas and ambitions challenged.

A ten-year journey started from behind the camera to in front of it. Julian became

-An accomplished author of ‘Second Best Job in the World’ (published by Harper Collins)

-A polished magician and stage performer

-A viral Youtube success – with over 30 million views and 140,000 subscribers

-Co-creator of the world’s first online training academy for professional children’s entertainers

-Creator of Confident Video Presenter Academy - online and on-site video training for business

And somewhere amongst all that, climbed mountains, and raised a family.

His longest journey of all? was starting life as a stutterer to being a professional keynote speaker presenting to Australian and international audiences. 

Together with his wife Vicky, his greatest accomplishment is sending two strong competent daughters into the world.

Now he shows you how to overcome the fear of video in 7 days and become the confident video presenter you want to be.
