Dr. Gary Wohlman
Gary graduated with honours from the esteemed Horace Mann private secondary school, receiving the Headmasters award for the top student excelling in both academics and athletics. Graduating with a combined Pre-Med. and Psychology degree from Johns Hopkins University, Gary saw his future as a child psychiatrist and set his sights on medical school, yet felt a greater calling from the burgeoning new field of self development.
To Gary, unlocking the dynamic energy system by the ability to feel centred and in command had a natural synchronicity with his early acclaim as a gymnast, track star, and springboard diving champion. Integrating this physicality into the core of presentation coaching is the foundation of the “Wohlman Method for the Whole Person“, which was government accredited by the Department of Education & Training (DET) in Australia in 2002. During this same period he received a PhD in Transpersonal Psychology and Expressive Arts Therapy, through which his proven methodology for liberating vitality, creativity and gifts of expression through the body as the chief instrument of communication reached new levels of connection with wider audiences.
Dr Gary’s quest is to assist fellow presenters find their authority, authenticity and audience engagement with the simplest, swiftest, most sustainable systems possible. “Here’s to unlocking your true self, speaking from the heart and being heard – with your fullest vitality, physical presence and connectedness – on all stages of your life. It’s an honour for me to assist you in enhancing the impact and effectiveness of your live presentations, and in bringing your voice and message out into the world as you’ve always dreamed possible“.

Quek Wan Ting
Wan Ting’s background is in psychology and counselling. She takes an existential therapy orientation using movement as the main form of intervention. Some of the topics close at heart includes end-of-life issues, grief and loss, spirituality, addictions and trauma. She enjoys working with the older adult populations, and has conducted group dance-and-movement sessions at the Assisi Hospice Day Care Centre, and was part of a research project for ‘Creative Dance Intervention for Persons with Dementia’. Wan Ting has also played various roles, as a teacher, mentor, instructor to various groups in various settings, and worked with young children, teenagers, adults and older adults in her work.
““I started my journey nine years ago, when a question of ‘Who is Wan Ting’ made me pause to think about the things I was doing in life. That was the first catalyst, and many things and people have shaped my experiences since then, from Latin social dance floors to the 5Rhythms tribes in Melbourne. I felt like I spoke for the first time, in the 22 years of my life when I stepped onto the dance floor. I tasted what it meant to be alive, and there was no way back. I danced and danced, and I kept dancing.”
“My journey is one of deep transformation. It’s an ongoing journey. From a self-expression, to a self-exploration, till today where dance is a spiritual practice. Every dance, every move, a prayer.
I am now here to share this journey, with those who are ready for something more, a journey into life, into being, into our truest selves.””
