Keynote speakers

Luke Owens

Luke Owens is committed to making a difference to the lives of homeless young people.

Luke has recently been recognised as one of the top 50 young and extraordinary change agents in Australia.

Throughout his Bachelor of Education course, Luke has gained practical experience from teaching rounds and was exposed to just how many underprivileged youth are living in our communities.

Taking education and leadership beyond the classroom Luke founded “Bendigo for Homeless Youth” a Charity which raised $500,000+ for homeless Youth in 2012.

“Some people aren’t as fortunate,” Luke says.  “Once you reach out to others you find a greater sense of purpose than just your own dreams and ambitions – the feeling of fulfillment – I want to give that to others".

In his keynote address Luke will speak about his journey and what inspired him to make a difference
