Tony Christiansen

New Zealand
Tony is one of Australasia's leading inspirational/motivational speakers. He is humorous, bold and straight talking as he brings you a story you will never forget.
He tells of the adversity he has faced since the age of nine when a horrific railway accident left him without legs.

Although this was a terrible thing that happened Tony has never allowed it to slow him down in anyway in fact he has achieved more in his life so far than most of us willing to even try.

He is a successful businessman and best selling author; a qualified lifeguard honoured by World Surf Lifesaving Federation; an Olympic gold medallist in shotput discus and javelin; has a Second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do; a race car champion and a qualified Pilot creating New Zealand aviation history.

Tony finds delight in every living moment and shares his passion and enthusiasm with audiences around the world.

Now in constant demand as a keynote speaker to corporations and conferences, he has presented in New Zealand, Australia, USA, Asia and the South Pacific, leaving his audiences with an insight of what can be achieved with determination, belief and a burning desire to succeed and accept the challenges of life.

The scaffolding which Tony scales to do his presentations is the stunning start to the roller coaster of emotions which he takes you through, you will laugh, you will cry, you will never forget ... Tony Christiansen.
