Waples Marketing Group Pty Ltd
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.

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.
American Express International
I loved Layne's energy and passion. She was really engaging and made me feel excited and interested in the discussion. She also made me feel involved in the conversation, even though I was online and not in the same room. Layne helped me to realise that while work/leadership can be stressful & my monkey mind goes crazy, it's super important to take the time to centre myself and bring my mind back to the present and focus on what is important now.

Layne Beachley AO's Biography
Layne Beachley AO is regarded as the most successful female surfer in history. Layne’s dedication to success saw her as the only surfer, male or female, to claim six consecutive world titles between 1998 and 2003.
Layne went on to win a 7th world title in 2006 before retiring from the ASP World Tour in 2008. In retirement, Layne spends her time travelling nationally and internationally as a motivational Keynote speaker for some of the world’s top commercial firms, sharing her stories about sustaining success, overcoming challenge and maintaining a winning mindset.
In September 2018, more than a decade after winning her record breaking seventh women’s world surfing crown, Layne returned to the water to win an 8th world title, becoming the first female winner of the WSL World Masters Championship with her victory in the Azores.
She is also a trainer and facilitator of a series of workshops, igniting potential in everyone she works with. Layne is also the Founder and Director of her own foundation, Aim For The Stars, Chairperson of Surfing Australia and an Officer of the Order of Australia.
Motivational speaker, trainer, facilitator and philanthropist, Layne currently focuses her energy on igniting potential in others. Through captivating storytelling and genuine straight talking trainings, Layne thrives on assisting people to focus their mindset on achieving their goals, realise their gifts, dispel self-limiting beliefs and fulfil their potential. Layne is a highly sought-after keynote speaker and trainer, an author, director and passionate about giving back.
In addition to Layne’s Keynotes and workshops, Layne is the proud Founder and Director of her very own foundation, Aim For The Stars. The Foundation empowers and enables young girls and women to invest in their future, fulfill their potential and to put back into the community that supported them on their journey. The financial struggles early in her career almost caused Layne to quit! It was the generous empathetic action of one of her employers who presented her $3000 to help her fund her international travels. This inspired the creation of Aim For The Stars, providing financial assistance and moral support for young girls and women to dare to dream, pursue their passion and aspire to achieve.
As if stamping her name in the history books was not enough, Layne has also achieved yet another first in Australian sport through her appointment as Chairperson of Surfing Australia in the latter half of 2015. Layne is the first former female World Champion of any sport to take on the role of Chairperson in a National Sporting organisation. As a competitor and world champion, Layne previously dedicated 15 years of service as a board member to the WSL (formerly the ASP), committing herself to improving and progressing the sport of surfing. In addition to this, she staged the richest surfing event in the world for 7 years.
Her exploits are astounding, her attitude is unwavering and her achievements inspirational.
Speaking Topics Include
A Winning Mindset
Your life isn’t defined by what happens to you, you define your life by how you choose to respond.

Break the Bias
We are all permanently biased, & for good reason! Biases help us filter information, add meaning to it, act fast in the face of uncertainty & anchor memories. Unfortunately, this also results in flawed conclusions, disconnection, judgement & assumptions. In this presentation, Layne shares her 3 personal experiences with bias that hold us back, the associated challenges & solutions to overcome them.
