For years, Josh Stinton has been taking on the hardest physical challenges around the world in which he has little or no experience, and asks “why not?” Often portrayed in the media as a crazy guy doing crazy things, Josh’s keynote talk takes you through the insights he has gained along the way that leaves him absolutely convinced that we are all capable of achieving anything we put our minds to.
Hear the story of Josh’s adventures come to life as he explains how he’s cycled across the Atlantic, crossed the entire length of Japan using only his arms, represented Australia in the world’s largest downhill unicycle race (yes, downhill mountain-biking on one wheel) and skied across Sweden in the 90km Vasaloppet ski race (despite having never hit the slopes in his life and training only on road skis along Sydney’s Manly Beach esplanade).
Pride aside, his story leaves the bloopers and failures IN, for others to learn from. This is not a glory-ridden story, this is an open and bold account of a life led by a person asking one question “would I read this life I am living if it was a book?”.
Josh’s keynote talks and workshops are tailored to meet the specific needs of each audience, with a focus on helping individuals and businesses unlock their full potential. Whether you are looking to motivate your team, inspire your customers or simply learn from a real-life adventurer, Josh Stinton has the expertise to deliver.
Audiences can expect to find inspiration around personal and professional change, resiliency to follow through with bold plans. Ultimately leaving people with the permission to write the life story they would love to read for themselves.
In addition to the presentation, Josh facilitates bespoke workshops guiding teams through models and techniques to help them rapidly achieve solutions to complex cultural and leadership problems faced in business.
"Josh joined us on our national road show around Australia, six two-day events in July 2019. He was asked to motivate and excite our financial planners for the year ahead following a tough year of change. Through Josh’s life story, he was able to connect his experience of taking on challenges, losing motivation and the importance of finding his purpose (supporting small charities) to succeed, and linked this to our financial planners' current situation of industry and business changes creating lack of motivation. His take on finding your own purpose not only inspired our financial planners professionally but also personally. Josh was a pleasure to work with on this tour."

"We had the pleasure of having Josh speaking to us about Growth Mindset. He does that in a humble way, and he really managed to engage the audience. Josh was great to work with before, during and after the event and I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs engagement around growth mindset."
Head of People, Circle K Europe
"It was great to have Josh as speaker in June 2022 when we arranged our very first summit for our Top50 group in Norwegian. Josh had a distinct story delivered in a credible way and which was easy to emotionally connect to. He had excellent examples of how strong your drive is if you (or even better your organization) are purpose driven and how a growth mindset as a cultural concept can propel you and your organization forward."

"We were very pleased with Josh Stinton’s presentation. He added new energy at the end of a long meeting day. The participants also found the charity aspect interesting. CSR is something many of us work on. In addition, he was funny, engaging and the fact that he has English as his mother tongue was a huge plus in a multilingual assembly."

"Josh is a man with lots of energy who takes over the room when you meet him. His lecture provides room for reflection on one's own skills, one's own mastery and what we humans are actually capable of if we make up our minds. I think everyone in the room sat back and was impressed by what Josh has managed to create and his story after the talk."
