About the show

What is The Do Landers about?

doer
[ doo-er ]
noun
a person characterized by action, as distinguished from one given to contemplation.

The Do Landers draws you into the hearts and minds of inspiring people doing extraordinary things.

In The Do Landers Podcast, your hosts Nik Devidas and Blake Collins interview some of the world’s most inspiring Doers, from sporting hero’s, to entertainers and artists, best selling authors, entrepreneurs, experts in business and those that just crack on and do.

The Doers explain how they lean into discomfort, deal with failure and setbacks, conquer the dreaded Imposter Syndrome and put their heads down to do what it takes to live with passion and purpose.

After a listen you will come away feeling inspired and armed with some practical tips and advice on how to tick off some of the stuff on your “To Do” list.

Humans don’t live forever so we’ve only got this one shot at life. It might be time to do something about it.

This is The Do Landers.

Meet your hosts

Blake Collins

Blake has crammed a lot into his life thus far and lives by the philosophy that he has more life left in front of him than he’s already lived. He is aiming for triple figures and a letter from the Queen.

He dropped out of school to pursue a career in acting & theatre and found his 15 minutes of fame on Neighbours back when Bouncer was about. Today he finds himself as an Executive in the technology space where his purpose is to help businesses transform and ultimately succeed. He does this by inspiring his team to create amazing experiences and to do and be what they are passionate about.

For Blake, The Do Landers is an opportunity to share inspiring stories that will spark and motivate others to do and pursue what they are truly passionate about.

He is all about making memories with family and friends, healthy living, mindfulness, music and oh, making Nik go for incredibly long runs through the forest.

This family man does not like to waste any waking moment standing still!

Nik Devidas

Nik uses other people’s stories of action (and sometimes inaction) to inspire him in his own life.

After starting his first business when he was 21, he’s still operating his second business which he started when we was 23: globally ranked IT & Cybersecurity Company, Rock IT. At 33 he was recognised as a top technology executive globally and his businesses have been honoured in the BRW and CRN publications.

He’s also a Non-Executive Director at Barwon Water.

More than anything he loves connecting people and getting involved in the community around him. He’s the President of two local sporting clubs and runs two community groups aimed at building better connections between community members.

He’s a father of three, Saturday cyclist, Sunday cricketer, loves the mighty Hawks and trains the house down at: Hustle & Thrive.
