Presented by: Saxton Speakers Bureau. Gill Hicks is considered to be one of the most thought provoking, powerful and life affirming speakers in Australia and the UK. She is globally known as an Advocate for Sustainable Peace and a valuable resource in Countering Violent Extremism. Her devotion to making a personal greater contribution and positive difference to the urgency of building peace was realised when she was made permanently injured in the London terrorist Bombings on July 7, 2005. But Gill is much more than a survivor. Her presentation will focus on topics such as confidence and trust within ourselves, how having both allows us to make transformational choices. Gill advocates for the growth of a more confident collective / communities, societies and as a nation. As a finalist for Australian of the Year, her platform was centred on the importance of growing a confident and cohesive Australia. She speaks of change, or rather the negative connotation change has and change-Makers are often revered figures who are seen as ‘pioneer’s’ and ‘leaders’. She encourages audiences to take control of change through our Choice of how we React and Respond…..and use it as opportunity.
