MadMaxGregVanBIt’s not often that we have a guest on our show that has both a tie-in to Toastmasters, Public Speaking and a major motion picture release – in this case the much anticipated Mad Max: Fury Roadstarring Tom Hardy & Charlize Theron which will hit theatres May 15th 2015.

In this episode, Greg speaks with Greg Van Borssum who hails from just outside of Sydney Australia. Greg, had a real rough start when it came to public speaking in years gone by but has become a motivational speaker and strategic thought leader. He’s also been the crowds director and motion capture director on the Academy Award winning Happy Feet films & most recently as Fight Choreographer and Weapons Specialist on the new Mad Max: Fury Road, where he trained some of Hollywood’s finest actors. Greg tells us a little about the movie, his incredible roles in the film and what it’s like communicating both with A-list Hollywood actors in situations that can not only be challenging they can be downright dangerous.
