Motivational Keynote Speaker

Samuel Eddy

Wellness Expert | Executive Coach
Speaker | Founder

As a Executive Coach and Wellbeing Trainer, I help organisations and individuals manage stress and anxiety, tap into creativity and innovation and make positive changes in culture, career, business, well-being and work/life balance.

Recently I have helped organisations manage stress and anxiety in the workplace, implement resilience training, forge more meaningful career paths for employees and create working environments where creativity and innovation can flourish.

Existing clients include Westpac, Financial Services Ombudsman, KPMG, Deloitte, Coles, and Nurse and Midwife Support.

I also regularly run workplace wellness, well-being and mental health resilience training – go to http://openchange.com.au/ for more information or send me a message.

For 15 years I worked as senior marketing executive in banking and financial services throughout Australasia and Europe in both large established banks and more recently tech start-up organisations delivering disruptive digital and mobile technology to consumers.

I completed a Masters of Science, Psychology at the University of East London and for several years worked as a volunteer counsellor with people who suffered from panic, anxiety and related disorders.

Through my research and corporate experience I discovered an open and simple approach was the way forward to creating a more meaningful existence and implementing change.
