Fee Range: C


The entrepreneur, CEO and founder of Torstar and Powerful Steps started out with nothing more than self-belief and a global dream.

But fuelled by passion, integrity and delivery, Tory turned her dream into Australia’s top performing brand communications agency, working with top performing global retail brands. Now the global speaker and business coach empowers others to follow their dreams.

Her secret? The power of connection. The power of connection, backed by a stellar reputation, is what took Torstar to global heights of success.

For 20 years the agency attracted Australian brands wanting to launch internationally, and international brands launching into Australia. Their many success stories include the most anticipated retail launch in Australian history, Zara; being a trusted brand partner of Nespresso for over a decade; and developing a global brand communication strategy for Australian swimwear label Seafolly launch internationally.

But when, at the height of her success, Tory had a near-death experience, she re-evaluated her life goals. She stripped back and started again.

But of course she didn’t have to go back to the beginning. Her commitment to the power of connection, coupled with two decades working alongside CEOs, media personalities and celebrities, meant that Tory was able to launch Powerful Steps, in a powerful way.

Today she brings her skills as an inspiring yet grounded speaker, to empower audiences to be their best selves, and present their best selves—using the power of connection.
