Testimonials for Darren Higgins
For a man who at first glance fits an ideal of the “Aussie bloke” Darren is able to talk with profound and moving insight about the dangers of masculine stereotypes and explore why some men hurt others and themselves. I cannot recommend him more highly as a speaker in the media or elsewhere.
Every body has a story, and everybody’s story deserves to be heard. What sets them apart are the way they are told, and that is where Darren sets himself apart, and above the rest. The passion that is so evident in his speech is not able to be faked and the raw honesty that comes through holds everybody in the room. I have worked and spoken internationally and all over Australia with well renowned speakers, but I would rather sit and listen to Darren before any of them any time.

I’ve been lucky to see Darren speak in different forums and formats in our mining communities. He is one of the most powerful and talented speakers I’ve experienced on the topics of mental health and wellbeing. Regardless of the size and demographic of the audience he has this natural ability to draw you in. To cut through stereotypes and social stigma. He does this with his breathtaking honesty, raw emotion and genuine vulnerability. I understand he is known for bravery of the footy field, but that’s really nothing compared to the bravery he shows as a public speaker.
