About Guest Speaker, Luke S. Kennedy
Luke uses his "Breathtaking" story to inspire deep, lasting change, 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 PG's Story & Content 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.
"The Impact you had on our year 4-6 was significant. They are still talking about it and we have seen a marked difference in the students being more present, particularly around adults."
- Principal, Wembley Primary School
Luke connects deeply with any demographic. It doesn't matter what the demographic is though, we have 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. Through on the edge of your seat stories, Luke's talks have proven to help in all of these areas.
"The Best Bit Of Professional Learning I've Witnessed In 15 Years." - Teacher, Wellington NSW.
Luke shows how when we come into this world we are our true-self with unlimited potential and happiness. As life goes on though we get disconnected from this true-self. Some dramatic events will occur, we may do some regretful actions, or get negative beliefs about ourselves or labelled with certain things that take us away from this true-happy-self. The further we get away from the true-self, the unhappier we become because we’re not being ourselves. Labels, ego, negative beliefs, and worrying what people think, crushes productivity and results in an overactive and doubtful mind - a feeling of being lost, depressed, flat, anxious, and socially awkward, is a result of this.
Becoming a successful business owner, mental health advocate, and one of Australia's top motivational speakers, his purpose is to now use his experience to inspire, motivate, and enlighten others. To stop worrying what other people think. To develop mentally, emotionally, and physically. To shed the labels. To be free.
There’s countless speakers out there that focus on the content of success, and strategies. Without working on the individual’s mental health and self-realisation, progress in any form is stunted.
