Trevor Perry was born in a small town in the outback of Australia. He was raised on a vineyard from the age of four, in a valley surrounded by (what is known in Australia as) the bush. His youth was spent pondering the mysteries of the universe, and generally finding mischief in all its forms – without the convenience of television.
Upon reaching an age where he had to leave high school, and knowing his math skills were some of his best talents, he was guided into accounting. While at college, he discovered computers (which immediately became his passion) and the day eventually came where he was employed as a computer consultant. Everything looked up from there, including a stint of four months in Chicago in 1986 on a consulting assignment. After some restless months back home in Melbourne, Trevor was invited to Chicago in mid-1988 for a permanent position.
By the time the 90s rolled around, Trevor was living in Fort Worth, Texas. He began travelling regularly across the United States as a speaker on many technical midrange subjects for user group meetings, seminars and conferences. Later in the decade, he spent three years in Austin, where he indulged in many new and interesting activities. He was involved in the writing and poetry communities. Trevor auditioned for, and performed for two years in the performance company at the Texas Renaissance Festival.
Returning to Fort Worth, Trevor spent three years in the performance company at the local renaissance faire near Dallas – Scarborough Faire. He now resides on Long Island in New York, and is becoming acquainted with all the wonders of Manhattan and the north east. Having been through an interesting journey of discovery himself, Trevor compiled many of the life lessons he had learned into several motivational sessions and returned to speaking with a newfound energy and passion.
His session titled Get A Life! is in constant demand as a keynote speech, and has consistently received enthusiastic reviews from organizations, companies and attendees. His book Never Iron When You Are Naked is the wisdom of Get A Life! in a printed version.
Trevor’s Australian heritage and unique sense of humor provide for a different perspective. His sessions are fast-paced, challenging and require only that you sit back and enjoy the ride as your new perspective is cultivated.
