Nigel has a passion for understanding why businesses and their people are successful. As founder of ‘Ingenious Oz Project’ and author of ‘Game of Inches’, he travels Australia to find the most ingenious business and professional success stories.

As a keynote speaker, Nigel's ability as a storyteller means you will walk away inspired with actionable ideas that you can implement immediately in the workplace. Most people resist change because it seems too big, too hard and too scary. But when you give them an achievable process and the right mindset, they can achieve greatness.

Mat Botwell

Mat has been realising the vision of Free 3D Hands since 2014. 


Since testing a one-million dollar bionic arm whilst studying mechatronics at Chiba University in Japan in 2004, he has had the dream to make this technology available to all people around the world- especially those who cannot access or afford it.


Mat is the engineering mind behind Free 3D Hands, and has a strong passion and dedication towards serving the limb different community.  

“Mat Bowtell gave his revolutionary designs away for free, when he could have laughed all the way to the bank. Measure him by that, I say. Mat’s exquisite engineering mind and genuine social conscience prove that he is born to do this work. It’s pretty simple, if we help him, he will help many.”
