Will Toft is a serial entrepreneur, actor, singer-songwriter, teacher and composer. As the co-founder of the business accelerator BEXD, Will is the director of several startups including Halifax Replicas, Passion Productions, BurtonToft and is the Executive Producer of Mary Setrakian Australia.
He excels as the Sales & Marketing Manager for BEXD but frequently works within Product Development & Event Coordination.
Will produced Mary Setrakian’s Brisbane Workshops in 2018 and with this success has a 2019 National Tour in the works. He believes that telling stories and turning dreams into reality is what makes life truly worth living and he looks to bring both of these to all his clients, colleagues, friends & family.
You’ll often find him deep in thought. And by deep, I mean you’ll see cogs turning, a slight glaze over the eyes and little puffs of steam from his ears. Don’t worry, he’s still alive. He’s likely playing out an adventure in his head, or a piece of music, an unbelievable “what if” scenario or trying to figure out how to provide the most value, to the most people.
