Many people will tell you that you can’t. What you must do is turn around and say Watch me!
7-time world champion Layne Beachley is widely regarded as the most successful surfer in history. The only surfer to claim 6 consecutive world titles, Layne’s story is the testimony to the power of self-belief.
A traumatic childhood ignited a flame of desperation to prove she was worthy of love. Layne’s affinity for the ocean and competition created the perfect storm to achieve her dream of becoming the best of the best.
Learning how to lose taught her how to win. 19 years on tour, 29 tour victories, 7 world titles (6 won consecutively), 5 in a state of fear.
Her career was an emotional rollercoaster of happiness, injury, adventure, depression, failure and ultimately, success.
An officer of the order of Australia, Chair of Surfing Australia, and founder of the Awake Academy, Layne lives a life of unapologetic honesty, sharing her experiences with humour and humility, standing firm in her values with a clear vision for the future. Her sights are firmly set on cultivating connection, growth and happiness in humanity.
Wanting to achieve success and actually believing in it are two totally different mindsets. We don’t manifest what we want, we manifest what we believe. If you want to know what you believe, just have a look at your life. Are you fulfilled or are you in fear?

Layne was fantastic! Her story and the way she presented it ensured there was something for everyone in it. We also appreciated the generosity of time and graciousness she showed with our attendees for the many photos that were requested. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to others.
Layne was amazing. Very engaging and our staff were captivated with what she had to say. The presentation was perfectly pitched towards our high achieving staff with all key messages covered off. Layne also was able to engage with our staff on a more personal level with her stories and this had a huge impact on the group. Layne attended our dinner and spent the evening mixing with our staff which was fantastic.
Layne was a standout speaker, attendee and VIP at our 2018 conference in Noosa. Layne coached some of our VIP delegates and sponsors for a once in a lifetime surfing lesson and the feedback was incredible. She also attended many of our conference sessions too which was great to see and signed books for our excited delegates at a major sponsor’s stand, a wonderful touch and very much appreciated. Her keynote was exceptional. Emotive, considered and inspiring in equal measure. I cannot rate her highly enough.
Layne’s presentation was excellent - combining entertaining anecdotes from her journey to becoming a world champion, relatable personal challenges and a professional approach to achieving individual & team goals. The audience was engaged from start to finish, and I’m confident there will be a lasting impact from Layne’s message. Layne was also very generous with her time, and was more than happy to have a chat and pose for some photos with staff.
I loved Layne's energy and passion. She was really engaging and made me feel excited and interested in the discussion. She also made me feel involved in the conversation, even though I was online and not in the same room. Layne helped me to realise that while work/leadership can be stressful & my monkey mind goes crazy, it's super important to take the time to centre myself and bring my mind back to the present and focus on what is important now.
