Taekwondo Olympic Gold Medalist, Keynote & Workshop Facilitator

Lauren Burns made history at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, claiming Gold in taekwondo. At that time, she was one of just three Australian women to win an individual Olympic Gold Medal, alongside Cathy Freeman and Susie O’Neill.

Since the Olympics, Lauren has pursued a passion for health and nutrition. She is the author of Fighting Spirit as well as her self-published cookbook Food from a Loving Home.

Lauren Burns holds a Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy), and while undertaking her PhD at RMIT university, has explored the link between lifestyle, mindset and elite performance. She has a particular interest in the importance of strong interpersonal relationships and their link to high performance. Lauren’s work was recently published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. An engaging keynote speaker, she draws on her personal experience and weaves the themes and impact of her work into her presentation to demonstrate how they apply to business and personal growth.

Lauren is well-known for her ability to activate participation, whether she’s working with as few as 10 people or as many as 10,000. During her more ‘active’ workshops she can have over 200 people use newly learnt taekwondo skills to break boards, all in the space of minutes!

Lauren Burns talks about:

Keynote presentations:

Lauren shares her inspirational stories, relating them to the audience with key messages about self-belief, passion, determination vs. natural talent, strategy, studying your opponents and self-talk.

During her keynote, Lauren teaches the entire audience some taekwondo moves and gets an audience member up on stage to break a board.

Keynote with workshop:

Lauren’s keynote combined with a workshop is a great way to kick off or close a conference. Perfect for audiences of all sizes, she teaches participants taekwondo moves (punching pads, self defence etc); gets them up and practising the moves, and concludes the event with all participants breaking boards.

With a focus on fun, Lauren delivers key messages about teamwork and performance. Audiences are left with a huge sense of achievement, and an autographed board as a memento. Taekwondo uniforms can be ordered.
