Our guest speaker will be Jules Allen, motivational speaker, social scientist and story teller.


Jules Allen is a remarkable Australian with a remarkable and moving story. Guided by the philosophy that “your greatest adversity in life is your greatest gift.”

Jule’s message centres on accepting life’s challenges and using them as a springboard for positive change. Her address to TEDx Melbourne on the power of acceptance was met with tumultuous applause and a standing ovation.

Jules is an award winning Youth Advocate. For the past twenty years she has worked in youth support, child protection, as a school counsellor and in private practice for young people and families in crisis.

In 2013 Jules found herself as a contestant on MasterChef Australia. In quintessential style, she put her new profile to use by emphasising the healing power of good food in raising well-balanced children.

Jules is now the face of Australian charities such as Adopt Change and Foster Care Australia. In 2010 she re-built a condemned refuge in the Solomon Islands for women and children escaping violence and abuse.

Join us as Jules shares with us her story.

The RKWN Host for the evening will be Bridget McDowall, Russell Kennedy Marketing Assistant and RKWN Committee Member.
