Melbourne’s favourite one-legged motivational speaker

Do you want to drive change in your organisation?

Are you looking for a motivational speaker with energy, humour, heart and soul?

Do you want to promote positivity, spark passion and uplift your people? 

Are you ready to level up and have some laughs along the way?

Don Elgin is not your average bloke… and he’s definitely not your average speaker.

As one of Australia’s most popular motivational speakers, Don has encouraged thousands of people to ‘have a go’ and create positive change. Whether it’s in the office, on the field, in the classroom, or out in the world, Don will get your audience buzzing with good vibes and great energy.

His talks are tailored to your goals and designed to drive home key messages. That’s what you’d expect from any speaker worth their salt. However, it’s Don’s delivery that sets him apart from other motivational speakers in Melbourne and Australia.

Through authentic storytelling and humour, Don connects with people on a deep level. He doesn’t speak from a soapbox or sugar-coat the tricky stuff. And you won’t see any sceptical eye-rolls or bored faces in the crowd. From the first minute to the last, Don will captivate your audience with inspiration, entertainment, tales of adversity and triumph. He might even throw in a few Dad jokes. That’s a risk you’ll have to take.

No matter what goals you’re chasing – or what challenges you’re facing – Don shows that anything is possible with a plan, a purpose and a positive attitude.

I was always impressed by Don's raw honesty and his engagement skills that would have everyone on the edge of their seats. Don combines real life lessons with humour and passion. My son still talks about a session Don did with the junior football teams at Mt Eliza and how all the kids loved it. I highly recommend Don’s motivational talks, be it addressing a Board of Directors, a Sales Team, Production Staff, or even little Jonnie’s Footy Team. Don has captivating learnings for all!
