Profile

7-time world champion Layne Beachley is widely regarded as the most successful surfer in history. The only surfer to claim 6 consecutive world titles, Layne’s story is the testimony to the power of self-belief.

A traumatic childhood ignited a flame of desperation to prove she was worthy of love. Layne’s affinity for the ocean and competition created the perfect storm to achieve her dream of becoming the best of the best.

Learning how to lose taught her how to win. 19 years on tour, 29 tour victories, 7 world titles (6 won consecutively), 5 in a state of fear.

Her career was an emotional rollercoaster of happiness, injury, adventure, depression, failure and ultimately, success.

Current Work:

An officer of the order of Australia, Chair of Surfing Australia, and founder of the Awake Academy, Layne lives a life of unapologetic honesty, sharing her experiences with humour and humility, standing firm in her values with a clear vision for the future. Her sights are firmly set on cultivating connection, growth and happiness in humanity.

Expertise
Talking Points

Unleash the Champion Within

Wanting to achieve success and actually believing in it are two totally different mindsets. We don’t manifest what we want, we manifest what we believe. If you want to know what you believe, just have a look at your life. Are you fulfilled or are you in fear?

This thought provoking and practical presentation will provide your audience with the opportunity to identify and shatter self-imposed limiting beliefs, reframe challenges, be authentic and overcome negative thinking to become the champions of their lives.

Key takeaways:
- Build boundaries not barriers
- Are your thoughts supporting or sabotaging you?
- Learn to flip negative thoughts as they appear



Sustained Success

Wanting success and actually achieving success are two very different things. Why do some people achieve greatness while others are left with the disappointment of unfulfilled potential? Layne shares her profound knowledge with anecdotes from lived experience, which will inspire your audience to clearly define their vision of success, find their honesty barometers and have them on the edge of their seats riding 50-foot waves. Are you ready to confront your fears?

Key takeaways:
- Clarify your vision
- Build your Dream Team
- Action is the antidote to fear

Be the Champion of your life

Your life isn’t defined by what happens to you, you define your life by how you choose to respond. We all experience challenges, setbacks, obstacles and disappointment, and Layne is no stranger to overcoming all of this and more; Chronic Fatigue, depression, loss and injury. To be the Champion of your Life you must be willing to embrace these foes and master your mindset. Deeply personal and powerful, this presentation is humorous, inspiring and raw in equal measure.

Key takeaways:
- Ground yourself in Gratitude
- What you focus on expands
- All challenges present opportunities

Feedback
Layne was fantastic. She spoke well and her story was shared with great passion and humour which was well received by our clients. The feedback has been fantastic with many saying she is the best speaker we have had to date. The auction of her surfboard and her book signing afterwards was a huge success. Layne was great to work with and interacted extremely well with our client. She was perfect for our Client Breakfast! CitiPower and Powercor Australia

Layne was fantastic! Her story and the way she presented it ensured there was something for everyone in it. We also appreciated the generosity of time and graciousness she showed with our attendees for the many photos that were requested. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to others.

Layne was amazing. Very engaging and our staff were captivated with what she had to say. The presentation was perfectly pitched towards our high achieving staff with all key messages covered off. Layne also was able to engage with our staff on a more personal level with her stories and this had a huge impact on the group. Layne attended our dinner and spent the evening mixing with our staff which was fantastic.

Layne was a standout speaker, attendee and VIP at our 2018 conference in Noosa. Layne coached some of our VIP delegates and sponsors for a once in a lifetime surfing lesson and the feedback was incredible. She also attended many of our conference sessions too which was great to see and signed books for our excited delegates at a major sponsor’s stand, a wonderful touch and very much appreciated. Her keynote was exceptional. Emotive, considered and inspiring in equal measure. I cannot rate her highly enough.

Recruitment & Consulting Services Association

Layne’s presentation was excellent - combining entertaining anecdotes from her journey to becoming a world champion, relatable personal challenges and a professional approach to achieving individual & team goals. The audience was engaged from start to finish, and I’m confident there will be a lasting impact from Layne’s message. Layne was also very generous with her time, and was more than happy to have a chat and pose for some photos with staff.
