Every stage that Greg stands on has one overarching feature; whichever of his services or skills he's presenting, his intent is always to make you, your delegates and the event itself the star, through his attention to your theme, your ethos, direction and your desired outcomes. This focus and passion has a genesis in his broad experience, some of which is outlined below.
1972 to 1995
An immigrant to New Zealand, Greg arrived in 1972 with is parents and two siblings on an assisted passage - more commonly known as the '10-pound-pom' scheme. His parents were always fiercely independent, and after a period of indenture, his father and mother went into business for themselves, involving the children as soon as they were able, imbuing all three with an entrepreneurial streak which only became stronger over time. Greg's schooling led to an initial role in packaging & design, before the lure of the military became too strong and he served four years in the RNZ Army, fittingly in communications. An extended period of travel in Europe followed with significant highs, including being signed to a British independent label with a 4-piece pop-rock band.
1996 - 2019
Returning to NZ in 1996, Greg expanded on an IT role he had begun in the UK, and spent two years with C&L, later PwC, before gathering a growing skill-set in acting, performance, music and stage and creating an event company, and embarking into business for himself in 1998.
21 years later, his reputation and range of services sees him working around the world, with 2019 seeing him add a deeper level of offering to his range, with keynote speaking coming to the fore, calling on his long term experience, training and teaching in improvisation, his years of study in human group behaviour across more than 1000 events and a deep belief in the power of 'being in the moment' for both business and personal growth.
