Nick Bowditch - The Best Motivational Speaker in Australia

G’DAY, I’M NICK.

I am a motivational speaker, a best-selling author, and  trauma therapist .

And I’m a successful and UNsuccessful entrepreneur.

I started on this journey as a small business owner and startup founder. I built and sold a few businesses. And I failed. A lot. Some of my best ideas turned out to be terrible ones and, thankfully, vice versa. I’ve built agencies. 

I’ve built apps. I’ve sold stuff online. And I’ve helped loads of people tell their stories to the world by honestly telling mine.

Storytelling was key to me being able to build and sell startup businesses, and it was key to me leaving the small biz world when Facebook recruited me to start, build, and run their small business operations in Australia and New Zealand.

After leaving Facebook, I went on to work at Twitter, and to this day, I am still the only Australian to have worked at both Facebook and  Twitter and the only person in the world to have worked in marketing departments at both brands.

G’DAY, I’M NICK.

I am a motivational  speaker, a best – selling author, and  trauma therapist .

And I’m a successful and UNsuccessful entrepreneur.

I started on this journey as a small business owner and startup founder. I built and sold a few businesses. And I failed. A lot. Some of my best ideas turned out to be terrible ones and, thankfully, vice versa. I’ve built agencies. 

I’ve built apps. I’ve sold stuff online. And I’ve helped loads of people tell their stories to the world by honestly telling mine.

Storytelling was key to me being able to build and sell startup businesses, and it was key to me leaving the small biz world when Facebook recruited me to start, build, and run their small business operations in Australia and New Zealand.

After leaving Facebook, I went on to work at Twitter, and to this day, I am still the only Australian to have worked at both Facebook and  Twitter and the only person in the world to have worked in marketing departments at both brands.

But you know that feeling when you’ve got a good job, and you’re doing fun work … but you just feel like you should be doing something else?

 
I just knew I wanted to do 3 things: 
 
I wanted to write a book about my childhood experience with abuse and trauma, and how I live with anxiety, depression and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder as a result, 
 
I wanted to speak more about that and other experiences with mental illness and resilience and growth on stage in front of audiences where I can make a difference to other people living with that stuff (or living with people who are living with that stuff).
 
And I wanted to change careers (again) to become a psychotherapist, and work with people in a much more hands-on way to help them with their own healing and growth.

And so I did.

I worked my way through rehab, through tons of therapy, 
 
I slaved away at my book, Reboot Your Thinking, which I am stoked to say became a best-seller. 
 
I now speak on stages all over Australia and around the world, including speaking at TEDx talking about my mental illness, my recovery from addiction, the resilience that we all have within us, and how to access it. 
 
And I completed qualifications in psychotherapy and counselling and am currently working towards getting my PhD in Clinical Psychology.
 

The pandemic knocked me around a bit, as it did for millions of people all over the world. 

But as we come out the other side of it now, it’s time for us all to reset, reboot our thinking, and keep moving towards being the best version of ourselves. 

And whether it’s seeing me speak at a conference or an event, reading one of my books, or engaging in some one-on-one counselling, coaching or therapy work with me, I would love to help you reset from all of this in the best position and putting your best foot forward.

Recovery is hard.

  IT’S A BIT EASIER WHEN YOU’RE NOT DOING IT ALONE.    
ARE YOU READY TO GET STARTED?

You deserve to be happy.

I mean, finally, actually, happy. I wasn’t happy in my life for a long, long time. And for much of that time, the people around me in my life weren’t happy either. It wasn’t until I found someone that I could unpack all of the hard stuff with, the pain and the trauma and the sad stuff that I finally started to move forward and become … happy. I want that for you too. Are you ready?

People are good.

Humans are funny old things.

On the one hand, we are pretty non-compliant. We tend to, largely, not really go along with what we are asked to do, and we are even less likely to do what we are told to do. If that weren’t true, there would be no need for police, or even laws for that matter.

How you can go ahead with your event or conference if it’s under threat from Coronavirus

By now, you would probably have had to have been living under a rock – or at least have a very strong boundary set for yourself and how you interact with news and social media – to not at least have heard about a virus that is moving relatively quickly between countries on the planet, carried by unsuspecting human carriers, called COVID-19 or Coronavirus.

How to make space for growth
