Dave Letele

Community Legend & Founder of the BBM Programme

Dave Letele is living, breathing proof that obesity can be overcome – and an inspiration to thousands of Kiwis. Once weighing 210 kilograms, Letele now weighs less than half of that. He achieved this transformation through hard work and dedication and was fuelled with the goal of turning his life around. Dave now works tirelessly to motivate others to deal with the challenges of obesity.

Dave is currently working with public health and social service providers across Auckland to deliver his highly effective (free) BBM programs to improve the health outcomes for New Zealanders dealing with obesity and long-term health conditions. BBM's influence and impact has grown to now also be giving out countless free meals for the homeless and offering a foodbank for people in need. All Kiwis would have seen Dave in the media with the recent flooding and cyclone as Dave and his BBM team did arguably more to help so many impacted Kiwis than anybody else.

Dave is a huge inspiration to so many - he will be sharing the learnings from his life and is guaranteed to motivate you to want to do better.
