Layne Beachley

7x World Champion & Mental Wellness Advocate

Layne Beachley’s no bullsh*t leadership style continues to blaze a trail for equality, in and out of the water. A seven-time world champion. The only surfer in history to claim six consecutive world titles, five won in a state of fear, two won in a state of love. Her story is one of overcoming states of self-doubt and self-sabotage, achieving success and maintaining a winning mindset.

Her life experiences are the inspiration behind the creation of Awake Academy, empowering people to become more centred, connected and confident to design and live a life they love.

Layne is an ambassador of AIA Vitality, WWF Australia, RUOK? Day and Black Dog Institute. She has survived major injury, illness and depression, enabling her to lead the mental wellness discussion in Australia.

In Fiji Layne and Tess will challenge and transform our thinking, help us silence negativity and empower us to be more centred, connected and confident leaders.
