She is also a multi-talented presenter, writer and performer with hundreds of credits; as a recording artist, on stage and screen, as a radio & television host, a Speaker Coach to professional speakers... and as a popular corporate conference facilitator and MC. Zara believes "Good humour is Good Business" and that there is power in humour for improving health, happiness and the bottom line. HA! provide a variety of communication and engagement programs -- with many happy clients, including: Bayer, Cadbury, Coke, Microsoft, IBM, Origin, Optus and more. Most recently, Zara and her husband have created a sci-fi children's animation called Zuzu and The SuperNuffs. Produced by Melbourne's multi award-winning Matchbox Pictures -- it is about to air globally on KidsCo and Syfy Channels, in over 90 countries and 20 languages! She is an expert in helping people lighten up and get more out of their work and their lives. Zara believes many businesses are suffering from an epidemic of over-seriousness and that there is now a common misconception; that "capability" and "seriousness" are the same attribute, when they are in no way related. "You need to be capable in life -- you don't have to be serious".
