Gavin Sequeira interviews Daniel Phung - Dentist Turned Marketing and PR Agency Owner In this podcast, Daniel shares the journey of how his parents came to Australia during the Vietnam war as refugees with absolutely no money and no possessions. In his words, they were so poor that they would run out of food. Daniel believed that to be successful in life you had to be born into wealth and therefore he had no dreams. Using Tom Cruise as one of his idols who overcame poverty, he decided to turn his life around. By studying hard and working as a dentist he became successful but realized he could only help so many people in the day. This was also a time when he discovered the power of marketing and messaging to reach people in a unique way that spoke to their wants and needs.

Gavin Sequeira interviews Steven English - Process Engineer Turned Speaker, Executive Coach And Trainer In this podcast, Steven shares his journey out of engineering, a field he has studied and worked so hard to excel at, and where he had moved up as far as he could on the corporate ladder.  In one of his last jobs at Samsung, he experienced his darkest hours where his health took a toll fuelled with alcohol consumption. It was also during this time that he was involved in training and development where he experienced the joy of helping others to reach their potential and he explored options of learning and growing from experts he came across on a regular basis, working out how he could create an effective presentation skills class. This was a passion he would seek out to fulfill.   Steven made the tough call letting his employer know that outside of his professional hours in the company, he would dedicate his time to teaching presentation skills classes and concentrate on his coaching. He took the time to plan his move with careful consideration. Steven is an advocate for getting to your truth as quickly as you can and start small and make a start at a time when you don't need the money, so that you are free to experiment and try things without the attachment of the outcome. He is also a believer that we all have the opportunity to be transitional characters and break the mould of whatever we find ourselves stuck in. From Toastmasters to TedX and everything in between, Steven continues to share his message and you can connect with him on LinkedIn or through his website: www.stevenenglish.net
