Motivational Speaker

What makes Lindy Hou stand out?

Lindy’s motivational talks come from her deeply emotional, personal experience.

“Making the best of our ability to perform our personal best” is Lindy’s motto. She uses this to share with her audience her journey to create success and overcome challenges.

Lindy’s extensive experience allows her to relate to people of all backgrounds. Her inspirational presentations enthuse everyone from the top end of business to school children as well as community groups.

Over the last few years Lindy has had the opportunity to speak in front of diverse groups of all ages, including corporate, school and community groups. Because she believes that staying positive in life is the foundation to success both in business and in life, Lindy loves the challenge and fulfillment of these presentations and looks forward to every opportunity to share her life experience and motivate others.

“When I realised that being down and out got me nowhere, I decided to dig myself out of the hole and do the best that I could with what I have. I share the lowest point in my life to show that, when I changed my attitude, I began the journey of success.”

Lindy is able to engage her audience to look at challenges that they, too, have to face in life and help them to use these challenges as stepping stones to the next chapter in their lives.
