We have a real champion coming to our Speak Easy Conference in Perth. Sian Williams. A 10 year old girl who has made it her lifes mission to stamp out bullying in schools across Australia. Sian runs a charity called KIDZUCATE and has herself been bullied at school because of her stutter. Her bio is amazing and she has agreed to speak at our convention.

Sian was awarded the 2014 Pride of Australia Young Leader Medal for W.A. She is also the youngest delegate in the world to receive the Human Rights Hero Award that was handed to her at the 2014 Youth for Human Rights Summit in Brussels, Belgium. Sian was one of the Finalists of the Constable Care Child Safety Awards ~ in 2015. And in 2015, Ian Goodenough MP Federal Member for Moore did a speech in Parliament on behalf of Sian. Sian also received the 2017 Governors Youth Citizen of the Year Award. It goes without saying that this is a truly amazing achievement for anyone, much less a child of her age.
