Fox at National Young Leaders Day
18 year old London Olympic silver medallist Jessica Fox was one of four keynote speakers who presented to more than 6,500 Primary school children at The National Young Leaders Day at Sydney Entertainment Centre on Monday.
The National Young Leaders Day is an annual event founded in 1997 to develop strong leadership values amongst young Australians.
The Program consists of keynote talks, multimedia presentations and interactive learning that seeks a range of specific outcomes for young people who aspire to lead themselves and others well.
Fox was invited to speak at the event by Halogen Australia after they were impressed by her presentation at a Young Leaders Seminar at the University of Western Sydney earlier in the year, while they had also heard of her involvement in the Premiers Sporting Challenge.
Fox spoke about her Olympic journey with the key theme being leadership.
“I was really happy with how it went,” she said.
“They were such a great audience and really responded well to my talk, the questions I asked them and the key messages I put across. I had positive feedback from the teachers and kids too so I think they enjoyed it.”
Fox was one of four keynote speakers on the day joining Rugby League legend Nathan Hindmarsh, Queensland Police Detective Brett Lee and social entrepreneur Creel Price.
