Mr Bashful, epiphany specialist.

Mark Avery as Mr Bashful.

Mark Avery became a soapbox speaker to improve his public speaking skills and get feedback on his ideas. He calls himself Mr Bashful because it’s easy for people to remember and it’s easy to google. He talks to his grasshoppers about happiness and resilience, though he is nothing like your typical happiness guru. His approach is down to earth and refreshingly different.
Mark speaks of other things too, to give his grasshoppers variety.

Mark once went for an entire year avoiding the news and current affairs in all its forms. His aim was to clear his mind of paradigms and view life with ‘new eyes’. He became painfully ignorant.

He presented an Ockham’s Razor talk on Radio National.
He won the ‘Now Hear This‘ speaking competition on Radio National, hosted by Melanie Griffith.
He gave a Sydney Ignite talk on why we should burn the Mona Lisa.
He manages the fun and informative site.

Mark is more than just an expert on happiness, he is the authority! (He claims, anyway.) In his site, he provides a fresh, evolutionary approach to the subject of resilience.
