Kaley Chu is an author, TEDx Speaker, founder of 100 Lunches.
In 2018, Kaley turned lunch into a life changing experience. Not just one lunch, but 100 of them, with strangers, over the course of a year!
She is the author of the brand new book, ‘100 Lunches with Strangers’. Since publishing the book, Kaley has been featured in The Age, Sydney Morning Herald, Herald Sun, ABC News and been interviewed by radio stations across the country. She is now a TEDx speaker and now sharing her journey and the lessons distilled from those 100 Lunches with the rest of the world.
Described as one of the freshest new faces on the motivational speaking circuit, Kaley has polled higher in post-session feedback than most seasoned speakers. According to Michael Russell, MD at MoneyQuest, ‘Kaley’s keynote and book should be mandatory for anyone employed in a job that has a sales component. There has never been a more unique prospecting initiative and how when it’s done right, it can transform you and the potential of your business.’
Kaley is a thought leader with a down-to-earth, everyday manner. Her inspirational story has the power to cut through corporate hype and encourage immediate, life-changing action.
Her story has not only inspired many to get out of their comfort zone, it has motivated entrepreneurs, franchisees and seasoned sales professionals to re-examine their business ideals and networking methodology.
Kaley’s session has been very valuable for us and can best be described as a breath of fresh air. Traditionally, motivational speakers present themselves with enviable talent, or typically overcoming severe hardship with perseverance. However, Kaley took us on another journey entirely, one so much needed: there was no special talent, crippling shyness, a lack of confidence and a desire many of us share: to do more. The audience connected with Kaley really well and felt understood. Kaley shared an extremely valuable toolset that is as simple as it is genuine, and we laughed and cried when she described her journey. I never met a group so empowered after they heard Kaley speak, there was a strong resonance and her session truly made a difference to our organization and our ambitions as a company.
I highly recommend Kaley to anyone who is considering her services.– Honeywell
Thanks Kaley for delivering such an incredible keynote presentation at our Conference. Not surprisingly it scored the highest rating from our members. Your story is testament that we really can change our destiny. Yes, you need to be incredibly courageous and yes you also need to be very committed to sticking to a plan, but you have shown that we can all do it! Your keynote and book should be mandatory reading for all school-leavers to better prepare them for all that life can offer PLUS anyone employed in a job that has a sales component. There has never been a more unique prospecting initiative and how when it’s done right, it can transform you and the potential of your business– Money Quest
