The right motivational speaker can raise an event to the next level, stimulating attendees’ minds and empowering them to take steps towards an enhanced experience of life. The pathway to success, be it in our personal lives or our workplaces, is often viewed as a solo endeavour. This can lead employees down a challenging and isolated road where many get stuck feeling uninspired and completely drained. In overcoming their own challenges, Adam and Rani have cultivated skills that are relevant to people in any workplace.

Themes: Leadership, resilience and wellness


School is a challenge for students across all age groups. There is mounting pressure from social media and magazines to look and act a certain way. Bullying and mental illness in school age students is at an all-time high. These are issues that Adam and Rani are very passionate about because of their own personal struggles through their school lives. At 9 years of age, Rani experienced her first brain injury. At 13, Adam was diagnosed with bone cancer. Adam and Rani draw on their own experiences to deliver a powerful, insightful and engaging presentation for primary and secondary students alike.

Themes: Self-confidence, resilience and kindness

Hospitals/Treatment Centres

Being a patient in hospital or rehab is not fun, especially when dealing with life threatening and/or life altering experiences. Overcoming these challenges can take years of work and the psychological impact can be just as crippling. Rani and Adam are uniquely placed to draw on their own healing journeys, to guide people through adversity, shift the way they perceive their current reality and help them to achieve what they want in life. From the initial diagnosis through to retraining the body and mind to accept a new normal, their stories have a particular resonance for those undergoing their own treatment.

Themes: Forward-thinking, accepting change and resilience

Charities/Community Groups

One of the key motivators for Rani and Adam in creating the Age of Ability was an understanding of the transformative power of storytelling. As communities, stories help us to connect, show compassion, offer comfort and champion change. Drawing on their own personal experiences with disability, Adam and Rani will share how they turned their greatest challenges into their greatest triumphs and showcase how the right mindset can help you achieve more than you ever thought possible. Community presentations are tailored to the specific needs of the audience, focusing on the themes of overcoming adversity and the power of a positive mindset.

Themes: Positivity, overcoming adversity and self-confidence

About Youth Off The Streets

Youth Off The Streets is a non-denominational community organisation working for disadvantaged young people who may be homeless, drug dependent and/or recovering from abuse.
Youth Off The Streets supports these young people as they work to turn their lives around and overcome immense personal trauma such as neglect, physical, psychological and/or emotional abuse.
It is their goal that these young people will leave their care drug free, with a high school education, living skills and a full-time or part time job in hand.
Since opening in 1991, Youth Off The Streets has grown from a single food van delivering meals to young homeless people on the streets of Kings Cross to a major youth specific agency offering a full continuum of care through delivery of a wide range of services.
Their 35 services include aboriginal programs, crisis accommodation, alcohol and other drug services, counselling, accredited high schools, outreach and residential programs. Volunteers support them every step of the way.
Youth Off The Streets is accredited as a Designated Agency for Out of Home Care and maintains policies and procedures that comply with the benchmark standards as defined by the Office of the Children’s Guardian.
