A keynote – in person or virtual – is a great way to make an impact and help teams re-think their wellbeing and relationships and parents re-imagine their journey as mums and dads in a positive and constructive way.

These last couple of years have clearly been a challenge for anyone trying to plan an event. While we understand the face-to-face connection is difficult to replace, virtual formats have provided a strong alternative to in-person events.

Justin uses the best technology to keep his online presentations as fresh, interactive and engaging as possible. Whether you wish to plan your session with Justin as virtual from the start or wish to simply have this option as a back-up, we make it easy for you and you can be confident your audience will be delighted either way!

Justin is in the media most days of the week. He talks about parenting, education, and psychology issues for The TODAY Show, The Project, Studio 10, Mornings, and The Daily Edition.

His writing has featured in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Daily Telegraph, and other major mastheads around the country, as well as on kidspot.com.au – Australia’s %231 parenting website.

Justin is a regular on at least a dozen radio stations around Australia each week, including 2GB and 2UE Sydney, 4BC Brisbane, 5AA Adelaide, 3AW Melbourne, 96.5 Family FM, Hope 103.2, and many, many more.
