Exclusive Dinner Series: Dinner with Luke Anderson

Having completed a 4 and a half year prison sentence in Victoria, Australia, Luke has a deep understanding of adversity and knowing how it feels to hit rock bottom. Before being sentenced, he was a helpless and hopeless child from a poor family who went on to become a commercial drug trafficker. This existence led to an all too typical spiral of depression, anxiety, homelessness, self-isolation, oppressed emotions, substance abuse and lovelessness.

But, Luke refused to continue on this path to self-destruction. Making a firm decision to turn his life around, he unearthed a strength and resilience that enabled him to change his direction, and he wants to help others do the same. Since his release, Luke has contributed to a documentary on positive psychology, started a company that will help others overcome hurdles to gain long-term employment and has developed the skills to succeed in relationships, business and community.

Luke is on a mission to prove that anyone can turn their life around, and hopes his story can add value to the lives of anyone listening.

When: Wednesday May 17th, 6:00pm until 8:00pm.
