Guest Speakers

Dale Shearer

Dale Shearer is an Australian Rugby League legend, and State of Origin great. He played in 26 games for the Queensland Maroons, 21 International Test matches for Australia and 7 World Cup games. He is one of the fastest and most versatile players Australia has ever seen.

Also known as Rowdy, he had a memorable career playing for every Queensland club, and the International English team, Widnes. Dale held the all-time top scoring title for 10 years after his retirement from the Maroons, only to have it beaten by fellow Indigenous great Greg Inglis. Rowdy will always be known as an Australian football legend.

Dale achieved the pinnacles of rugby league success and was often yielded as an on-field hero for his ability. However, off the field, he has experienced incredible personal highs and lows. As difficult as the challenges have been for him, he now speaks reflectively about them providing inspiration for all who hear his story.


Sione Faumuina

Former NRL player and Kiwi International turned inspirational speaker and coach Sione Faumuina is on a journey to inspiring people to unleash the greatness they have within them through his one on one coaching and training programs.

A published author Sione released his autobiography The Second Phase and has delivered his message of creating positive change into high schools, professional sports teams, government and corporate organisations.

With a passion to serve Sione has been on a journey to understanding and learning human behaviour and why we do what we do, with the aim of empowering people to fulfill their true potential and achieve results they never thought possible.
