Billy Graham

Dynamic & Entertaining Motivator

Billy Graham is New Zealand's best-loved motivator and fitness advisor. He is bold, bouncy and brimming over with energy and enthusiasm.

Billy Graham has spent a lifetime involved in sport and physical fitness. A former New Zealand and Australasian light welterweight boxing champion, he has achieved success through goal setting and determination.

Billy delights in telling stories of his own life to show that anyone can make it. He has delivered keynote presentations in New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia and the UK. In June 1997 Billy Graham was the main platform speaker at the Million-Dollar Round Table Convention in Atlanta, a New Zealand first. He received a standing ovation from the audience of 5,000.

Billy Graham began his working life as a butcher before teaching physical education and later starting his own business. Billy designed a unique fitness product complete with endorsements from the US Airforce Academy and Floyd Patterson - ex world heavy weight champion. No small achievement for a dyslexic who left school at 14!

Billy's talents were recognised in Made in New Zealand, a Television New Zealand program featuring successful New Zealand companies. He has also appeared on 60 Minutes. In 1998, Billy published his motivational memoir, Your Ship Came In The Day The Doctor Smacked Your Bum. It reached No.1 bestseller on New Zealand's business book list.

In January 2006 Billy established the Naenae Boxing Academy; a charitable trust and the fulfilment of a life-long dream to have his own boy's club in his troubled home town of Naenae. Out of his desire to make a difference, and provide for others, here Billy trains up to 100 young men three days a week.
