We bet you didn’t think that was it for new speakers! The Booked Out family is growing a lot this year, with two new fantastic Victorian speakers who we’d like to introduce, as well as an important new session from Nikki Gemmell (NSW).
George is an accomplished motivational speaker with over ten years experience in inspiring young people. George details his journey from the Hip-Hop industry to finding faith and his transition to successful children’s author.
Huda Hayek learned as an adult to embrace all the parts that make her unique. Hayek believes all children, no matter their backgrounds, can do this early and use it as a tool for success. The author of Huda and Me, Huda speaks to students about embracing difference, identity, belonging and using your own voice.
Nikki Gemmell has created a very timely and comprehensive session for students, titled Consent, Tenderness and Empowerment. Tailored to senior secondary students, the talk aims to empower our young people. It is about respectful relationships. Reciprocal relationships. Porn. Drinking and drugs. Having a voice. Control. Bewilderment. Generosity. Talking with each other, having your mate’s back – and pleasure.
One year 11 student who heard this talk came up to Nikki Gemmell afterwards and said, “that’s the best Sex Ed talk I’ve ever heard. Why aren’t they all like that?”
We’re really looking forward to working with George and Huda, and seeing Nikki Gemmell’s long lasting impact on students during such important years.
