Luke S. Kennedy is one of Australia's most sought after speakers. He uses his "Breathtaking" story to inspire Resilience, Motivation, and Self-Awareness, for a wide range of audiences, from primary schools, high schools, businesses, events, and even prisons.
For eight years of his life, Luke was an obese alcoholic and drug addicted thug (Luke alters Story & Content to make suitable for Primary Schools). Leading a violent street fighting crew, he was stabbed on two separate occasions; once in the lung, the other time in the head. On the outside, he looked strong and confident, even happy at times, but on the inside his thoughts would haunt him. He was incredibly scared, depressed, anxious, paranoid, and was obsessed with what others thought about him.
Through on the edge of your seat stories, Luke now connects deeply with any demographic. It doesn't matter what the demographic is though, he's found that all suffer from the same internal battles; worrying what people think, living up to labels/expectations, social awkwardness, anxiety, dealing with past trauma, and not knowing who they really are or where to fit in. Luke's talks have proven to help in all of these areas.
After his harsh past, Luke's now a motivational speaker, international best-selling author (GRAB a copy of his book HERE), mental health advocate, and mentor to troubled youth.
"They were absolutely gripped by his story and messages. It's created a tremendous shift and I'm so grateful."
