“David's presentation was well received by our membership and for many, David's story and the work of the Nick Foundation, was inspiring. David is a highly authentic presenter and his personal story and his warmth ensures his message is well received.”

Mark Henderson
Transformation Manager, WorkSafe Victoria

“Nick spoke at one of Energy Safe Victoria’s all-staff briefings and his presentation was the highlight of the day. Staff loved his unique perspective on leadership, resilience and success, and many commented that they would have liked to hear more. We hope to work with Nick again in the future.”

“When Nick presented to the Hobart Hurricanes just before the start of BBL03, it was the most inspiring story that any of us had ever witnessed. He had an incredible impact on everybody at our club and still does today. The key message of ‘entitlement’ (earning the right to success), played a huge part in us making it through to the finals that year. He talked about the true value of team building and how this motivates and inspires others to do whatever is necessary to get the job done. He helped us all realise that belief comes in a variety of forms. We would highly recommend Nick to present to any sporting or business organisation as he immediately had an impact on us and will continue to do so for many years to come.

Head Coach, Hobart Hurricanes

“The opportunity to explore Effective and Authentic Leadership with David in an intimate group setting was priceless. His knowledge base was obviously excellent, but the honesty and engagement with all in attendance were what made the learning experience so valuable. I look forward to more of my team being able to experience this workshop, so they too can appreciate the tools and learnings that will guide them to being the most effective leaders they can be.”

“Nick Farr presented to the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority Staff during our annual staff workshop as part of our theme of ‘Working Together’. Nick’s presentation was very moving and the use of video footage in amongst his slide show helped to reinforce his messages around the difficult and unique situations and terrain. The images were breathtaking and the underlying messages around teamwork were valuable. It takes an extraordinary person to climb Mt Everest but it takes a remarkable to person to share their experiences in such an uplifting way.

Communications and Marketing Manager, Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority

“Nick recently attended and spoke at a team building couple of days I was running with my staff. My work area has recently undergone significant change and recruitment and I sought Nick's expertise to motivate, challenge and speak about resilience to my staff. Nick spoke with authenticity about his mountain climbing/high altitude experiences and the death of his climbing partner. He also spoke about his experiences in summiting Mt Everest. The messages Nick was able to convey were perfect for my new teams and were very well received. Nick is a consummate professional and spoke with passion and held everyone's attention. If you are looking for a motivational speaker, someone to challenge your thoughts on leadership, capability, motivation, resilience and teamwork, then I highly recommend Nick.”

Neil Paterson
Divisional Commander, Victoria Police

“David, I love the style in the way you engaged with our group. The knowledge and experience you shared empowered us to reach the high performing standards that I expect from my team. You presented in a manner that was both humorous and engaging, while still getting your messages across to the entire team. I found your ability to connect to a variety of personalities, cultures and ages a true gift.”

Paul Licuria
CEO, Alffie

“Nick Farr was the keynote speaker at Haymes National Sales conference in July this year. The way in which he told his story, shared his experiences and passed on what he has learnt in his life, was inspiring to all in attendance. Nick’s delivery of his message fitted perfectly with our aim to motivate and encourage our sales team to go beyond their comfort zone and aim to be the best they can.”

“I would highly recommend Resilience Builders to anyone heading to Nepal! They made sure the whole experience was smooth sailing from the get go, our whole group was very well looked after and the guides and porters made the whole trip extra special.

“Want to see the real Nepal? Resilience Builders are a fantastic company running the most amazing programs in Nepal. We went to Everest Base Camp with a group of 26 which included teenagers with a parent on an adventure called Resilience for Teens. Being able to trek with such experienced guides and staff meant all 26 made it to Base Camp, happy, healthy and excited to be there. Couldn't recommend them more highly.”
