Full Presenter Profile & Bio

Starting his career in the corporate world (management consulting), and always with a passion for philanthropy, in 2012, Josh Stinton took on the challenge of his life and in doing so, changed the course of his own and others lives forever.

Josh relocated to Australia fourteen years ago to complete studies in International Business and a Masters in Banking & Financial Regulation. Since then, his career has seen him work in event production, producing events across multiple sectors, some including TEDxSydney and Vivid Ideas Festival and management consulting, working with professional service organisations throughout Australia as a “design thinking” facilitator, supporting businesses to create appropriate solutions to their challenges.

In 2012, what started out as a friendly dare would change his life forever. Josh agreed to take on one of the most challenging ski races in the world (a 90km cross-country ski race in Sweden) all without ever having skied a day in his life.

On completing the race, Josh founded Outspire - a community committed to doing good. To do this, Josh travels the world taking on some of the hardest challenges known to man all in an effort to raise awareness for small charities in need.

Since his first challenge just over two years ago, Josh has gone on to complete a number of other incredible challenges including representing Australia in Unicon, a 14km downhill mountain unicycle race; and mountain biking in the world’s toughest 700km off-road race Arctic Mountain in Alta Norway. He has a slew of challenges planned challenges planned for the next 5-10 years and with it, the list of charities he’s hoping to support.

Often referenced as the “Charity Adventurer”, Josh strives to encourage others to action through a range of activities including challenge participation, keynote speaking and workshop facilitation. Josh’s passion for giving back to charity has seen him win accolades such as Project Future’s top honour – being crowned the charity’s “Stella Fella” title and national ambassador for anti-sex trafficking. Josh is available for keynote speaking, film and video opportunities & brand partnerships.
