Current Work:

Nam is sought after by elite athletes, teams & is the well-kept secret of many ‘top 1 percenters’ in the business world. His gift of simplifying the complicated science behind brain & body performance, & delivering it in life-changing, digestible sessions, creates proven successes.

Nam Baldwin finds his greatest meaning in life when doing things that he loves doing, well; in creating a good effect in the world and finding his best self in the process. When Nam is working with you, you’ll have his complete support and undivided attention.

Renowned for helping his clients to reveal what allows them to be their best selves, Nam encourages them to ‘lean in’ to areas of discomfort as that’s where they really grow. With so many of his clientele already performing at high levels he uses an extensive variety of methods & environments to find the ‘gaps for growth’. In return he asks for commitment, honesty and an open mind.

Nam’s personal habits & practices are of the highest standards, and he has been consistent with them for a very long time. He knows what works, and he’s being doing them long enough to have faced any number of hurdles. He knows how to tackle tough times and come out better for it! He has no problem in taking others into uncomfortable territory if required - there’s no tip toeing around in these sessions.

Nam’s work has gained much attention with the results of his skills being seen regularly in the public arena; his enviable list of current and retired legends include 3 x World Surfing Champion Mick Fanning, 7 x World Surfing Champion Stephanie Gilmore, tennis legend Pat Rafter, Richmond Tigers, Sydney Roosters, numerous Australian national sporting teams plus Olympic & World Champion Gold Medallist kayakers, snowboarders & wake-boarders also proving his methods. In 2018 Nam began his role as the Elite Performance Specialist for Surfing Australia’s Olympic campaign, heading towards the 2020 games in Japan.

In the corporate arena Nam is working in a one-on-one capacity with elite individuals, and running highly interactive workshops for businesses that understand the importance of creating healthier individuals who understand themselves better; those who know that this leads to more connected, passionate & productive teams.

One of the reasons Nam is such an engaging & fascinating speaker is that he can share diverse life experiences that many only dream of: his thirst for knowledge, adventure & achievement has been highly recognised through several disciplines, he is an avid waterman who has held his breath for 7 minutes, a Kung Fu instructor, and lover of travel & different cultures.

Despite his many accolades, Nam’s humble, honest and simplistic approach to life is a breath of fresh air and is what makes him so loved by his audiences and his friends alike.

Talking Points

Keynote: The Road to Excellence: How to Prepare for High Performance

In today's world, so much of life has become results based & it’s detracting from our ability to perform at our best. We place excessive expectations on ourselves & we have slowly let our attention be consumed by things we can’t control. The opinions of others to overly dictate the way we think & feel, and whilst we worry solely about performance results, we are not present for the process where the real magic happens.

Too often, we are in hyperdrive, our thoughts & feelings are burning us out, and we are being left depleted and uninspired for high performance.

What do we need to shift to get back into the game of high performance?

Nam's keynote shares stories of incredible humans whose journeys took them from debilitating low-performance states to making this shift to being their best selves and ultimately becoming world champions, Olympic gold medalists and the top 1%ers in their craft.

Workshops: Breath Enhancement Training

Breath Enhancement Training (BET) is our internationally renowned flagship program, developed originally to help big wave surfers deal with the anxiety and pressure of being held underwater for extended periods of time. Fast forward 17 years & thanks to many world class athletes and entrepreneurs sharing their insights with us, the program has now been adapted for all walks of life.
Just like pro-athletes, corporate professionals work under considerable pressure & the stresses and expectations affect the body and mind in the same way, so learning the skills that support us, especially when under significant or prolonged pressure will have a remarkable effect on mindset, performance and ultimately, well-being and happiness.

The knowledge and techniques shared can be easily applied and will lessen each individuals day to day experience of overwhelm, anxiety and pressure. We’ll also be covering what needs to be in place to ‘switch off’ after a demanding day, supporting one’s mental health & another of our most important health pillars - sleep quality.

Breath Enhancement Training has infiltrated the corporate world with a proud reputation of ‘excellence’ amongst super successful execs & companies. This particular workshop is remarkable at creating an immediate shift in how participants feel, mentally and physically.

Being able to manage pressure better is handy in all walks of life, whether that means having the ability to stay calm when someone cuts you off in traffic first thing, improving your 5km run time, or managing your workload more effectively. It’s useful before, during & after any stress or challenge.
