Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Luke is a Registered Psychologist, who has 22 years’ experience as an Army Psychologist (Captain) with overseas service supporting the ADF on operations and delivering the Australian Army’s leadership/resilience curriculum.
Luke is different to your normal keynote speakers, in that he has spent most of his working career employed by large global organisations most recently as the Capability Development Director GE’s Global Growth Organisation. This means that he understands people dynamics and knows how to help people thrive at work.
His facilitation is based on first-hand experience and grounded in the most recent developments in Social and Organisational Psychology. He is best described as an internal consultant who speaks with independence but uses the internal language so that he has relevance and cut through. His style is relaxed, humorous but very insightful. Luke isn't afraid to challenge, and his audiences leave thinking, laughing, and changed. His approach is always evidence-based.
He has been a guest lecturer at GE’s prestigious Leadership University in Crotonville NY, featured on talkback radio (2GB, 2UE, 6PR, 3AW) and is a requested keynote speaker for industry events. Most recently, he trained 744 top performers in Resilience over the course of a week in Los Angeles. He has delivered multiple residential leadership development programs for Sensis, GE, Latitude Financial and McDonald’s Australia.
He has coached and developed multiple senior leaders and he has trained over 5000 people in Tracom Programs. His focus is to ‘train the trainer’ on evidence-based programs so that they can change their organisations from the inside-out.
His passion for developing teachers, young adults and children started at University when he completed his Thesis on Adolescent Leadership. During his time at University he also worked at Melbourne and Brighton Grammar developing adolescent leaders. He is delighted to be (finally) launching the ‘school’ versions of the globally successful Tracom Social Intelligence Programs.
Luke is an accomplished keynote speaker, facilitator, trainer and Registered Psychologist.
