No, we’re not talking about some fluffy, feel good woo-hoo, this program is solidly based in BRAIN SCIENCE and offers crazily simple skills that positively transform how YOU operate in the world. Not only will this program change how you lead and work, it will also improve your family life.

As these skills begin to pay their enormous dividends you’ll see a positive impact in many areas of your life. You’ll have more energy, more enthusiasm and an entirely new view of your world. Worries and stress will no longer be the main drivers each day.

“The Happy, Healthy program is extremely powerful and has lasting effects especially in managing a leadership and school culture, this is a program I would recommend to the leadership team of any school.

how I respond to them.”

So Who Is Toni Powell?

In 2009 Toni suffered significant loss in many areas of her life all at once. The ensuing shock, grief and outrage plunged her into a deep depression.  After a year of tears Toni decided to find out if there were alternatives to a life on anti-depressants.

What she discovered amazed her and she set out to find the science behind the change and to answer one question.

“If it worked so effectively for me – could it work for others?”

That answer turned out to be YES! – there are outrageously simple and easy ways to transform your life and anyone can do it.

Toni is now regarded as a leader in the field of wellbeing and creating positive, enjoyable workplace culture. Her popular masterclasses and keynote talks have been featured at many conferences including Happiness & Its Causes, TEDx and The Workplace Wellness conference. She works with schools, universities and companies all over Australia and is a Learning Partner with Queensland Association of School Principals (Qassp), AVID Australia (Vic Uni) and IEC’s Workplace Wellness programs.


Toni’s Goalcast talk has over 14 million views and she’s also been the subject of a heart-warming ABC ‘Australian Story’ episode.
