Chris Nunn OAM presented to Safe Work Australia in honour of International Day of People with Disability in December 2016.
Chris’ presentation met the brief perfectly, combining his passion and drive for achieving success, team work and motivation with a good balance of personal stories, particularly from his work with Paralympian’s, and how this can be related back to the workplace environment. It was the perfect fit for what we wanted!
With a mix of photos, images and videos, Chris’ presentation immediately engaged the audience, with his humour and storytelling skills keeping everyone absorbed for the duration of the presentation. Chris’ powerful and thought provoking video at the end of his presentation left staff in tears with emotion – an extremely motivating video which inspired the entire room.
We received fantastic feedback following Chris’ presentation, with some staff noting it was one of the best presentations they’ve seen.
Chris was very responsive and flexible with his presentation – fitting us in between an international flight and another speaking engagement with very short notice. His friendly nature made him an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Chris Nunn was the key note speaker at a Rotary International Project called Rotary Adventures in Citizenship. The students were in ore of Chris’s presentation and so were the Rotarians in the room.
It’s not hard to be inspired by someone who has a passion for what they are doing and who have the ability to take their audience along for the journey.
Trust and honesty is Chris’s key, you know exactly where you stand and he will always strive to get the best for all concerned in every situation. He can just inspire and take people on the journey when he is presenting to a small room or hall full of people. No one is left behind, only wanting to ask more questions.
I have the deepest personal and professional respect for Chris, and sincerely belief he will bring his unique energy, optimism, passion, and tireless creativity to any company or organisation that he has the pleasure to work with. He has my highest endorsement.

We were absolutely delighted with Chris’ presentation. All feedback we received, and continue to receive all day today, from our guests has been just brilliant, and extremely satisfying from my perspective.
Chris has a passion for his message about team work and leadership, but importantly, his passion for the Paralympians, that comes right from the heart. As a result, his presentation is genuine, emotional and thought provoking. I have heard a number of sports people present business related topics where they link back to the sporting environment. Many of them don’t really make the link successfully, however Chris has achieved this perfectly and I would say he’s the best I’ve ever heard. In fact, I wish I could just have his presentation on replay to tap into every single day.
