Full Presenter Profile & Bio

A magician, an army veteran and a globe-trotting TV cameraman walk into a bar… no joke! Julian Mather has been all three. He’s travelled far but his longest journeys have been from behind the camera to in front of it, public servant to entrepreneur, stutterer to international speaker.

He now shares why, as a leading videographer, the only camera he owns is a smartphone and how this pocket-sized TV station will revolutionise the way you make your business videos.

Beginning his career in the Australian Army, Julian then spent 25 years as an ABC documentary cameraman where he met and filmed some of the world’s greatest, famous and notorious, travelled the globe in pursuit of those adventures and stories, and witnessed the highs and lows of human nature

Julian is an accomplished author of ‘Second Best Job in the World’ and ‘Get Video Smart’. He also created and sold the world’s first online training academy 
for professional children’s entertainers

He combines inspirational storytelling, unique content, compelling visuals, humour and practical tips to produce a presentation that stays with audiences. Julian is passionate about preparing audiences for the future by teaching two essential 21st Century skills including:

  • 21C Learning - the ability to learn, unlearn and relearn
  • 21C Video - video literacy, the ability to make video and video conference, the ability to be on video

Speaker Topics

Get Video Smart
The video age for business has arrived but there is a reluctance to use it. Why? Simply we feel self conscious in front of the camera. Problem is, that is out of date thinking and it is holding back business. This assumption busting talk makes clear that video for 21C business is different. Your audience realise that in a world hungry for truth, it is them with their lumps and bumps and wrinkles that will drive the authentic, agile marketing machine and they will do it with that pocket sized TV station called their smartphone. This motivational presentation is the perfect way to kickstart video in your organisation.
The Second Best Job in the World
Everything changes fast these days. Keeping up is hard. The ability to learn, unlearn and relearn is an essential 21C skill. Julian has made an art form out of embracing change: army sniper to globe trotting TV cameraman to magician to speaker. The audience discovers the transformation secrets that took him 25 years to learn, and they find out who has the best job in the world!


There are speakers who offer you fresh perspectives as subject matter experts. There are speakers who speak with the rousing fervour of evangelists. There are speakers who are so just so enjoyable to listen to as storytellers. Julian was all three in one compelling package

Ministry of Influence

I don’t think we have ever has such an entertaining and educational feature at any previous sessions. The most impressive point is that each of our attendees could take something practical away that they could use on a daily basis in their workplace.

Australian Institute of Radiography

Not only was he one of the most entertaining speakers in the business, but he also makes complicated things so simple. No one was looking at their mobile when he spoke

Creative Change Catalyst
