BEN POLSON – Australian Ninja Warrior Champion and Motivational Speaker
There’s a lot more to Ben Polson than the success he’s achieved as Australia’s first Ninja Warrior champion. He’s also a highly energetic and passionate facilitator, keynote speaker and MC, sharing a vision that’s packed with strong social impact. For it’s the hard-hitting obstacles off camera that have created the person Ben Polson is today. Having endured years of schoolyard bullying which led to a loss of self-confidence and anxiety, that later turned to depression and a loss of purpose. Australian Ninja Warrior was his saving grace.
Ultimately, Ninja Warrior provided a community of like-minded people he could trust. It was a place to rebuild his confidence; to discover a renewed purpose. And it is where he would unlock his full potential. As someone who is dissatisfied with the status quo and thirsty for social change, Ben Polson is at his happiest when he’s helping kids and young adults realise their unique purpose. His message takes audiences on a journey through his own life story – coming from a rocky background and living with a victim mindset – to realise that we control our own reality and through perspective, self-awareness, curiosity and accountability, he provides audiences with insightful tips and strategies for overcoming challenges during their formative years, backed by his mantra, “Believe it and you’ll see it.”
