Halogen Young Leaders Day March 2009

On Wed 18 March I was lucky enough to speak at the Halogen Young Leaders Day at the Brisbane Convention Centre where almost 4000 year 6 and 7 students rocked the house.

My talk was titled 'Be Scary', the fave saying of Mac Slater, star of my new book series. It was all about being bold enough to do the thing you love most in the world, something you love so much that time disappears. You know when you look up at the clock and three hours have gone by? For me, that thing is writing books, making movies, telling stories.

The crowd were so juiced and so loud they almost blew me off my feet. Check them out below! Thanks to Halogen and to all the young leaders. It was a great opportunity for me to crystallise my ideas on what I think's important.
