Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Paul Taylor is a speaker and educator whose love for health and wellbeing goes far beyond himself, as he desires to create a healthier world. His positive attitude and charismatic personality make for an enthused presentation ensuring audiences leave with knowledge they had previously been unknown.
As a former British Royal Navy Aircrew Officer, Paul has established himself as a successful Exercise Physiologist, Nutritionist, Neuroscientist and Affiliate Professor at The University of San Francisco.
Taylor is the Director of The Body-Brain Performance Institute, where he delivers powerful workshops to large corporations including Medibank, NAB, Johnson & Johnson and Woolworths, about executive performance, resilience and leadership.
He is also the founder and former owner of The Personal Training Academy, where his BioAge software was utilised and has now been rolled out to gyms both nationally and internationally, including Fitness First.
In 2010, Paul created and co-hosted the Channel One television series Body and Brain Overhaul, as well as appearing as a regular consultant on The Biggest Loser. In 2010 and 2015, he was voted as Australian Fitness Industry presenter of the Year.
Ritualize, a wellbeing website and program Paul created, is currently being released to the public after its successful trial with over 200,000 Woolworths staff.
As well as his extensive background within the health and wellbeing sector, Paul has experience in leadership, management and resilience. His background as an Airborne Anti-Submarine Warfare Officer and a Helicopter Search and Rescue Team Member with the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm, saw him be involved in rigorous training in combat survival and resistance to interrogation. In 2012, he became a professional boxer to demonstrate the importance of resilience.
Paul Taylor is able to speak passionately to any range of audience about his experience in both effective leadership and health and wellbeing, and has an ability to combine the two to create a desirable workspace environment where individuals can thrive. He is able to communicate with audiences about the importance of these characteristics and include ways in which they can apply them to their personal and professional lives.
Paul Taylor is one of the most inspirational speakers we have ever had work with our team. I have met very few people who have had such an impact on my staff. They are always asking “is he coming back” following the seminars we have conducted. My staff have made positive life changes to both their personal and work lives through adopting behaviours that Paul has recommend, and we look forward to doing more with him in the future

Paul Taylor is one of the most motivating and inspirational speakers who we have worked with in the past 10 years. His energy, passion and style is very engaging and our leadership team received great insight and practical techniques to help balance work-life in a challenging market. We will work with Paul going forward to help us to become great leaders.
Paul’s workshop on High Performing Teams was exactly what we were after. His engaging style and use of interactivity kept the leadership team focused throughout the day. He also provided easily implementable ideas and strategies that could be transferred to the workplace. Many of our leadership team commented that it was the best workshop they had attended, and he’ll certainly be invited again
Tennis Australia recommends Paul Taylor for any organisation. Paul’s use of an evidence-based approach that drew on socially interesting research insights had a diverse crowd very engaged. Paul is an outstanding leader if you’re looking to both engage and challenge people on a personal level and as a group. Since Paul’s presentation we’ve found our staff referencing Paul’s presentation time and again – his impact is ongoing
