about what really matters to you.
As a seasoned Inspirational / Motivational speaker, I regularly address corporate groups and training courses, local and international student groups, leadership forums and thought-leadership conferences. I tailor every talk to suit the objectives and theme of your event and can speak anywhere from 3 minutes to 2 hours.
To inspire or Motivate
After co-founding the Student Volunteer Army Foundation and several years of incredible experiences, I have adopted a philosophy that can relate to any industry or field of thought. I enjoy sharing this story and exploring some bigger ideas through the worldview of the audience in front of me.
Emergency Management / Disaster Risk Reduction
As a core leader of the Student Volunteer Army Foundation, I was involved in 7 disaster responses on 3 continents between 2010-12. I have addressed Emergency Management groups and conferences throughout NZ, Australia, USA and Israel, weaving lessons learned into global development trends.
About Youth Leadership
I started my 'professional career' by being thrust through a range of bizarre experiences before even finishing University. This has seen me pigeon-holed me as a 'young changemaker' for 4 years and counting, and nominated as a finalist for Young New Zealander of the Year in both 2014 and 2015. There are many things that we know as young people, and many things I wish I'd known when starting out.
On Miscellaneous and Sundry
I like the challenge of delivering an 'undeliverable message' in a digestible way. This has seen me dissect the faults of our relationship with money for an audience of senior accounting partners; exploring peace and community development whilst hosted by the Israeli Defence Force; and tell thousands of teenagers to stop talking about saving the world and instead worry about making themselves amazing people.
Why choose me?
- I challenge traditional thinking
- I have real stories and a genuine attitude
- I'm hilarious - ask my Mom
- I'm cheaper than Richie McCaw
- It's good for my mental health!
There are too many things changing too quickly in our lives to be able to keep up with it all. I have a real skill at pressing a lot of information into a handful of stories, examples, and ideas to make it more digestible for people. I speak to literally any industry, and enjoy new challenges.
