Gavin is a keynote speaker and has been fortunate enough to speak around the world, from Mexico to Manchester, the Middle East to Munich.

Making the work is the easy part, finding the time, however, is the difficult bit. In his talks and his book, Gavin shares his stories and methods behind getting the most out of those 24 pesky hours, conveyed via the medium of bright colours and animated GIFs.

He prides himself on being a ‘realistic idealist’ or ‘idealistic realist’ – striking the balance between uncurbed enthusiasm and pragmatic process. Floaty sentiments aside, his talks are about finding the energy and making the time to create things that matter. That’s something Gav believes applies to everyone - from a GSCE to CEO!

Gavin is also the co-curator of a speaking event called 'HUSTLEMANIA', a 2-hour 'mega' talk he presents with his brother-in-arms James 'Signalnoise' White. Their two creative journeys & output are interwoven and presented with bombastic aplomb, surprise guest interruptions and confetti canons.


Gavin gives talks to companies, conferences and colleges, festivals, events and everything in between. If you have an event that you think Gavin would be suitable for, then you can drop him a line directly on

“Gavin Strange headlined PROMAX ANZ this year in Sydney to rapturous applause .

His incredible talent coupled with high energy and passion makes Gavin a great choice of keynote speaker to open or close your event.

His insightful and funny examples of how to stay creative whilst managing work life balance and finding creative inspiration through life experiences kept all the creatives present hanging on to his every word.

We look forward to Gavin speaking at other PROMAX events around the world.”
