Youth Motivational Presentations & Workshops

Dreams to Dollars: The Adventures of a Young Entrepreneur (60 mins):
How does a 23 year old kid start a consulting firm and compete with people who have 20 or 30 more years experience than him? This is the full story of the path that led AJ to give up secure full time employment and chase his dream of running his own business. This isn’t a presentation about making money, it’s a presentation about making a life and carving out your own future when everything is against you. Audiences learn simple and easy to use techniques that they can apply to overcome barriers in their own life.

3 C’s to Career Success Keynote Presentation (60 mins):
If you want your Young Professionals to become more valuable in their career, you’ll definitely want to learn AJ’s 3 C’s to Career Success. It’s the exact same insider secrets that AJ used to become the NT Young Achiever of the Year.


Ultimate Goal Setting Workshop (1 hour):

In this workshop, participants use AJ’s “Ultimate Goal Setting”  technique where he demonstrates how to take your dream, break it down into goals and ultimately condense it into a daily todo list to help you achieve your dreams. It’s based on years of studying high achievers and peak performance coaches such as Brian Tracy and Tony Robbins, and is the same process that AJ uses to achieve his goals time and time again.

Dreams to Dollars Workshop (1 – 1.5 hours):
In this workshop, participants learn about entrepreneurship and that ANY idea can be turned into a money making venture, provided you know how to take down the barriers. AJ takes the kids through the idea generation process, and then uses his entrepreneurship model to develop those ideas into money making initiatives. This workshop appeals heavily to disengaged students and youth groups because it shows them an alternative to traditional education.

Olivia Clear and Katherine Margaritas from Box Hill Institute:


Based on the audience who turned up on the night, AJ was able to tailor his topics to suit the audience. He was able to engage and interact with all participants throughout the presentation while also using humour and relevant examples so people were able to relate, fully understand and take in what he was talking about.

AJ was very passionate and motivated about what he was talking about which kept the audience focused and wanting to hear more.  It was a great experience for both Liv and myself having him be the guest speaker at the Business Networking Event and also helping us to market and promote the event.

We would highly recommend AJ to speak at any event as he is able to make everything relevant to attendees, who were all extremely satisfied and had learnt a great deal from the presentation.
