The Auckland branch invites all IoD branches to attend this event.

Why is NOW important?  Because, in real terms, it is the only thing we really have any degree of control over. The past is gone – we can’t change it – the future is uncertain, we can’t rely on it.  All we have is now.

Greg inspires audiences to live authentically and intentionally ‘in the moment’, to achieve the best for themselves, their organisations and those they endeavour to serve in their professional and personal lives. 

Greg will share his experience of peak performance and leadership in business and on stages around the world, revealing how coming to terms with his own lived mental health experience was the catalyst to becoming a champion for change. Through this experience, he realised he had a unique opportunity to model the behaviour that truly creates a difference. 

Along with sharing his personal strategies for resilience and wellness, Greg’s aim is to inspire audiences and reduce the stigma around mental illness, one presentation at a time.

Greg Ward

Through more than thirty years on stage, and engaged at over a thousand conferences and events, presenting to more than half-a-million attendees through fifteen countries, Greg Ward is one of Australasia’s leading MCs, virtual hosts and speakers.

You’ll often find Greg gracing stages for a wide range of clients and industries, using every facet of his skillset - from keynote speaking to online hosting and interviewing, live MCing for conferences and awards events, or ‘wow’ factor entertaining from his repertoire of musical performances.

Greg is a life-long student of behaviour and is insanely curious about humans. He believes that to truly understand others, you must first be insanely curious about yourself.
