Toni Powell presents funny, transformational, and life-enhancing workshops

about the stuff that really matters.

” ….groundbreaking material.”


“Our entire staff participated in workshops facilitated by Toni around the theme of gratitude and it was fantastic! The information presented had depth and substance and the manner in which it was presented by Toni added credibility to what is ground breaking material. The feedback from staff has been universally positive and there was so much ‘takeaway’  for people, from personal reflection, to  greater understanding of group dynamics and potential for professional engagement with the material as teachers. Amazing research and insightful storytelling worked together seamlessly and it is certainly a presentation that would greatly benefit any group who engages with it. “

Mr Patrick Toohey. Assistant Principal – Sienna Catholic College


  • “All in all, Toni’s workshop is like having heart surgery – you feel like a new and different person afterwards – and its life changing – and life giving.” 

    Rod Hopping, Director – Heritage HM
  • “This workshop has been inspiring for our team that attended. To see the changes in our conversation and written communications has been truly encouraging and something that I am personally very grateful for.” 

    Gavin Keats National Sales Manager, Network Communications

    Matt Parr – Audioligist – Hear and Say

Different to ordinary workplace training or staff development Toni brings less of a workshop and more of a CLASS IN LIFE that has impact on every area of the attendees life – including work.

Many workshops promise change, few are able to deliver life-changing content that is unforgettable. Even fewer are able to deliver practices so alluring that people want to use them every day. Toni’s  programs deliver both.

Treat your staff to a day that will have long-lasting outcomes in all areas of their lives

Toni’s workshops will positively disrupt how attendees do life, do business, and conduct relationships.
