Author and researcher Maggie Hamilton writes books and for magazines; gives frequent talks and lectures; is a regular media commentator and a keen observer of social trends. Her many books, which have been published in Australia, New Zealand, Holland, Italy, China, Lithuania, Korea, the Arab States and Brazil, include What Men Don’t Talk About, which examines the lives of real men and boys; What’s Happening to Our Girls? and What’s Happening to Our Boys? which take a close look at the 21st century issues boys and girls face, and offer practical, workable solutions to these challenges; and Secret Girls’ Business a fun funky empowering gift book for teen girls.
I’m fascinated by people’s lives and big issues – what makes us tick, what are the big questions and where are the solutions? How do we create a better future? And what can bring us unstuck?
When I get the chance I love to get out in the desert – one of my favourite locations on earth – here in Australia, in America and in the United Arab Emirates. There’s no room for in-authenticity in these great spaces. What’s unimportant soon slips away, leaving you wiser, clearer, more at peace.
Your information is invaluable … Thank you for empowering me as a parent, teacher and coach.
Hearing Maggie’s take on modern, western childhood and it’s unique stresses helped me to understand just why so many kids in school are unhappy and making each other unhappy.
Congratulations Maggie on the great job you did at the conference.
Thanks for contributing to our conference. Your expertise and pertinent comments were most appreciated and added so much to the success of the panel.
We have had a lot of positive comments about your presentation, which people found to be engaging and very interesting … thanks for speaking at the conference dinner and helping make it such a success.
Thank you for bringing my awareness to this and lighting a passion … for motivating and inspiring me.
Probably one of the best speakers I’ve ever heard! Definitely eye-opening, but extremely realistic and encouraging. Fantastic.
Teachers commented about the suitability of Maggie’s material, her engaging approach, and the ways Maggie helped this group of just under 200 children begin to develop an awareness about some of the ways marketers target children to cultivate product dependency.
