Here is a snap shot of our presenters.

Tania Moloney : Nurture in Nature Australia and The Nature Bus

Tania is passionate about helping kids, families and educators connect with nature and with each other. She is a highly regarded speaker and workshop presenter here in Australia and Internationally.
Her childhood was filled with opportunities for outdoor adventures and she made (and ate) LOTS of mud pies. She has a head and heart full of cherished childhood memories of family camping trips, building "cubbies", sleeping under the stars and playing with sticks. Now with her own young family, Tania desperately wants those memories and experiences for her children too. As a result she has happily embraced that her kids will have perpetually dirty feet and her pockets/car/washing machine/handbag will be permanently filled with nature’s treasures.


Lisa Ford : Clinical Psychologist and Director of The Resilience Co.

Lisa began working with children and their families over 16 years ago. As a Clinical Psychologist, she has worked in a range of clinical and child development roles in both Tasmania and Western Australia. Lisa ran her own child and adolescent private practise for several years and now delivers community seminars and educator workshops on a variety of child psychology topics.


Marc Armitage : Independent Playworking Consultant

Marc Armitage is an consultant, researcher and writer in children’s play, playing and Playwork. He began his professional career as a playworker in the early 1980s with a local organisation in the UK, Hull Community Playschemes Association, and since then has worked as a field playworker, an adventure playground worker, a double decker playbus worker, a local authority play development officer, a university lecturer, research associate and a company director.

More recently he is a founding Director of the Australian based Playwork training and advocacy body Malarkey Playwork and still travels the world promoting the importance of play, playing and Playwork in the lives of all children and young people. He is a regular speaker to conference and seminar events around the world and has been published in magazine articles, periodicals, journals, books and academic papers in English and Swedish - some of which can can be found on this website. He is also is a member of the Society for the Study of Childhood in the Past, the History of Education Society and the Folklore Society.
