Keynote Speaker Bio 
Moments that Matter:  The Power of Now 
“The past is gone, we cannot reclaim it.  The future is uncertain, we cannot rely on it.  All we have is the present.  Live now.”
Greg Ward is engaged at over 50 conferences and events a year throughout New Zealand, Asia-Pacific and globally.
Presenting Moments that Matter: The Power of Now, Greg inspires audiences to live authentically and intentionally, to achieve the best for both themselves, their organisations and those they endeavour to serve in their professional and personal lives.  
To realise this, Greg shares his experience from over 25 years of peak performance on stages around the world, as well as revealing his own lived mental health experience along with observations and lessons learned through his business and speaking career spent in support of his clients.  Living authentically, in the present, is critical at any age, and Greg looks forward to sharing his vision for the future through focusing on living in the moment.  
As an actor, entertainer and performer, he has toured professionally in opera and theatre, has appeared in national and international TV shows and began his stage career fronting rock bands.  
A career highlight was performing to Brian May, Roger Taylor of Queen and writer Ben Elton for the final auditions of the musical We Will Rock You.
