Mr Luke

One Life. One Chance


After serving his country with the Australian Army, Luke hit his rock bottom. Succumbing to drug addiction, he woke up in jail while being hosed down by police with no idea how he had gotten there. His story from the lowest of lows to the highest mountains on earth is powerful, compelling and much needed in society today.

He shares lessons of confronting death, controlling fear, gratefulness and high-risk decision making amongst many others. His overarching theme is One Life One Chance and Luke brings his passion and inspiring stories to the stage. He is a best-selling author and keynote speaker who is not slowing down anytime soon.

With larrikin charisma he shares his stories about climbing six of the biggest mountains on earth, rowing 6400 kilometres across the Atlantic Ocean setting a Guinness World Record, dragging a cart 1800 kilometres across the Gobi Desert over 57 days and throwing himself from cliffs and buildings in the sport of B.A.S.E jumping. He has seen death before his eyes, been held captive in the jungles of Papua and found gratefulness in extreme physical hardship.

Talking Points

One Life One Chance

Luke hit rock bottom after leaving the military. He was a drug addict and woke up in jail being hosed down by police. Luke shares his jouney back to the top to become a full time adventurer, world record holder and inspiration.

High Risk Decision Making

Luke's expeditions have taken him to the most inhospitable places on earth. He has made tough life and death decisions in seconds to save himself and others. He now shares his experience and lessons to be utilised in daily life.

Controlling Fear

Through the heartstopping sport of B.A.S.E Jumping Luke learned to control his fear and utilise this tool in everyday life and business. He shares this lesson and some take-home tools with the audience.
Each year I have a team offsite with an agenda that aligns with our yearly theme. Many guest and motivational speakers have been invited, yet none resonated more to both the team and myself than Luke has. His ability to engage with all the different personalities in the team, bringing them along on the journey of his life’s experience, is just one reason the team’s feedback to me was Luke is the best guest we’ve had. The focus areas of our business that we are measuring, have improved, with us continuing to apply lessons from Luke’s story into multiple areas of our workplace. More importantly, members of the team, including myself, have applied some of his philosophies in our personal lives. Luke’s story is nothing short of inspiring and I can’t thank him enough for the positive impact he’s had on us. I look forward to when we can have him join us again and would happily recommend him to others. SAP Concur 

Stamford has had a proud association with Luke Richmond and OLOC over many years. We have shared in numerous adventures with Luke as a sponsor, enjoying and learning from both the success and failure alike. We have also had Luke speak at numerous events we have hosted as a business and would have no hesitation to recommend. Luke brings great natural energy to a room and a refreshing change from corporate talk or the less than motivational speaker. We look forward to continuing our association.

Luke is by far the best speaker I have engaged in the 6 years that I have been arranging events for our company. We engaged Luke as our keynote speaker for our apprentice awards evening and he was the perfect choice. Luke is a mesmerising speaker and is able to take the listeners on a journey. Luke talks frankly about his early struggles and the transformation he had to undergo to become the adventurer he is today. Luke’s message of goal setting and having a 5 year plan really resonated with our staff and I would recommend Luke for any potential speaking engagement”
