About Paul


Advanced Care Paramedic and Councillor Paul Spinks, has a clear message "are we micro managing ourselves sick or are we micro managing ourselves well?"

One in two of us are now depressed and between the ages of 15 and 44 suicide is the leading cause of death in this country. Where war-torn and poverty ridden countries are desperately trying to stay alive, we are making choices to end ours, or medicating ourselves just to front the day. Is it time we are all engaged at a different level? You will be shocked to learn how cracks form in your mental and physical health and why it's a reasonable theory that we must try new approaches to maximise both staff and our home performance. Placing layers of training and surface level concepts on how to better behave and perform may only lead to reduced outcomes.

Our Services


Companies often spend thousands on keynote speakers and seminars to raise awareness and inspire, but way too often the message only hangs around for a few days, maybe some weeks before old habits prevail. What if we could change that status quo. Some of life's most memorable moments didn't take place over days, weeks or years, but in moments, a key phrase or a passerby that left a profound message that stayed with us for a life time. Make your next conference a show stopper. We have a wellbeing message that is guaranteed to hit your hot buttons and will be a game changer on how you conduct your life and your business. If you're tired of the stereo typical health and wellbeing stream to motivate your work place then this one will be different. Paul's presentations are available from 40 minute keynotes, through to three hour workshops.

Presentation Snapshot

ABC Radio Interview


Rugby League Legend Shane Webcke and Paramedic Trauma Counsellor Paul Spinks come from two very different worlds, but combined they share "the glory of the rise and the tragedy of the fall."


I wanted to thank you for your informative and inspiring presentation today. I can't recall the last time I was so engaged and sympathetic to someone else's concerns and opinions on such fundamental values. Your experiences had the whole room focussed and feeling the problems we face as a society, with even the more battle hardened and defiant commenting on the positive effects you had on them. I hope to see more of your work, thanks again and best of luck, health and peace for the future... TAFE Queensland North
