Youth Leadership Seminar Themes: Courage and Creativity
Youth leadership happens when young people are willing to speak up (lead) and speak out (advocate) for the issues that affect them. I enjoy telling young people what public speaking and writing are still teaching me about leadership and courage.
My youth leadership presentations in Australia vary depending on clients’ suggested themes and overall event outcomes. Either way, we always end up having fun with the young people!
Lovely things students said after my National Young Leaders Day talk
I am so truly inspired by Taku and her ability to be outstanding and head-on confident with everything she believes in and her culture. Speaking from the heart, Taku lifted everyone’s self confidence and self esteem and we walked away with a confident smile and positive head.
