Luke was extremely inspirational and our students were very taken with his motivational ideas, particularly his take on Year 12 as being the academic equivalent of his Tough Mudder experiences. Luke made a strong and successful effort to connect with both the males and females in his audience, which made the entire group appreciate his messages all the more. He was engaging, honest, uplifting and definitely made his audience want to leap out of their chairs and make a positive start toward their own finish lines.
