      Michelle A. Waters

      Since publishing The Orange Line, Michelle has continued to explore self limiting beliefs, behaviors and archetypes that inhibit both women and men from leading with their whole self, purposely. Prior to this, her own curiosity and passion for spiritual growth, creativity and conscious leadership led her to accept global projects and relocate to the U.S. from Australia. The impact of her pioneering and Award winning workplace work life strategies influenced Australian 'Workplace Standards', women in leadership and inclusion expansion practices. For 25 + years she has held management, executive (VP & SVP), consulting, coaching, and project management appointments. She is an intra/entrepreneur, interpersonal and organizational change agent and coach committed to serving the development of others.

Her approach is wholistic and is founded upon her own courage to go deeper spiritully to discover her true self, learn presence, embrace change and challenge her beliefs.

      Graeme Bowman

      Graeme Bowman has spent years researching the root causes of complex global problems and their relationship to patriarchy. This lead him to create the simple model, Pozzy to Cozzy, which explores the current transformation of our human operating system, from one based on the pyramid (Pozzy) to one based on the circle (Cozzy).


      Graeme’s presentation style builds upon three decades of experience as a writer, speaker, performer and Master of Ceremonies in the field of corporate communications and comedy, across all industries. His satirical approach has often seen him lampooning the absurdities of society, corporate life and government bureaucracies.


      Graeme has appeared at hundreds of conferences, awards dinners, product launches, special events and leadership retreats. Past clients include IBM, Canon, Pfizer, Glaxo, Coca Cola, Shell and many professional associations and government bodies.


      Client comments about Graeme’s ‘Pozzy to Cozzy’ presentation:

      Light bulb presentation. Fantastic.”

      “Last speaker on patriarchy was amazing.”

      “This needs to be heard by so many more.”

      “Brilliant performer, very clever poetry.”

      “Very important messages delivered superbly and with great artistic flair and intellect.”

      “OMG how inspired I am!”

      “What a wonderfully humorous, relevant way to finish the conference...definitely the highlight.”
