Topics
  • The Island Where People Forget To Die
    Each year, Marcus travels to the small Greek island of Ikaria - the longevity and ageing well epicentre of the world. Ikarians experience 25% less cancer, 50% less heart disease and 75% less dementia and next to no mental health problems.

    Their life expectancy is 90 (Australia’s is 83) and they have quality of life almost up until their last breath (Australians average 11 years of decline). What are their secrets and what do they do differently?

    In this captivating keynote, Marcus shares their secrets - how they eat, how they drink (and they love to drink), their attitudes, their social habits, their working habits, their family habits - all of which can be applied to our daily life.

    This keynote is mind bending on how you approach work/life balance, workplace and personal relations, mental health, attitudes towards the future and your relationship with time.

  • Mediocre To Magnificent
    It’s scary how easily we tolerate mediocrity. What’s even more scary is how disastrous the consequences of average really are.

    Mediocrity in each area of life can lead to regret, dementia, isolation, disease, bitterness, boredom, financially broke and spiritually broken. On the flipside, magnificence in each area of life leads to inspiration, vitality, connection, energy, love, enthusiasm, financial independence and spiritual fulfilment.

    What path are you going down?

    In this keynote, Marcus lays down the path for rising from mediocre to magnificent in each area of life - and not just one - in order to experience what he calls Your Exceptional Life.

  • Secrets of The Exceptionals
    As a journalist by degree, Marcus loves to research and interview others. It used to be sportsmen and women, and today it’s The Exceptionals.

    The Exceptionals are living legends and those who have left a legacy that still lives on today. From Florence Nightingale to Holocaust survivors who went on to become the oldest living human beings, Marcus has distilled their wisdom or ‘secrets’ into actionable lessons that anyone can apply.

    The Exceptionals include business leaders, professional and amateur sportspeople, war widows, war veterans, Holocaust survivors, everyday heroes you’ve never heard of, world-record holders, medical professionals, multi millionaires and subsistence farmers. They are cross-cultural and cross-generational, and they have a pattern of living and a treasure chest of wisdom that we can all absorb and replicate.

    The perfect presentation if you love stories, multimedia and learning by entertainment rather than death by powerpoint.

  • You Are Your Culture
    The Simple Single Step Approach To Massively Improve Culture.

    Aimed at an audience who needs (and may or may not be looking for) a top-down exemplification model of culture. Drawing on the wisdom of longevity cultures that have survived wars and hardship, maintained their identity and culture and gone on to thrive, this presentation invites the audience to do the same; be it in the workplace or at home.

    This simple to understand, harder to apply message is often best coupled with an implementation workshop in order to really test if this romantic notion of a culture built on leading by example is achievable in your workplace. 

  • The Inconvenient Nutrition Truth
    Why Nutrition Experts Die Prematurely (And How To Avoid Their Fate)

    To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art. – Francois de la Rochefoucauld.

    Designed for an audience that pays either not enough or too much attention to their diet. Using examples of four diet gurus who died prematurely (through suicide, cancer and heart disease), this confronting presentation transcends the message of “you are what you eat” to invite the audience to master the art of eating intelligently.

    Drawing on Rouchfoucauld’s mantra, Marcus outlines that most of us have a mediocre food culture. He shares not only what longevity cultures eat, but how they eat, why they eat and who they eat with.

    Incorporating wisdom around responsibly alcohol consumption, limiting food waste and supporting the local economy, this keynote is littered with “a ha” moments and a game changer for raising attendees awareness and food lifestyle.

I am clearer how to work better in my role. I am less stressed about nutrition. I am much clearer on spirit/soul. I am going away with a belief that I will stop procrastinating and start doing.

I’ve learnt it’s about time I stop sitting around waiting for amazing things to happen and instead write my own script and create an incredible life! That I need to conquer my fear and get out of my comfort zone!

This presentation has been a good kick up the ass to be accountable in the essential areas of my life.

Marcus presents a world and life view that is broader than the one I had been thinking. He provides a stronger foundation across the 8 areas of life, rather than just focusing on one such as career choice.
