Meet Kaley Chu
Kaley Chu is an author, speaker, people connector and Business Development
Manager at Equi Wealth. In 2018, Kaley turned lunch into a life changing
experience. Not just one lunch, but 100 of them. With strangers, over a year!
She is the author of the brand new book, ‘100 Lunches with Strangers’.
Since publishing the book, Kaley has been featured in The Age and
Sydney Morning Herald and been interviewed by radio stations
across the country. She is now sharing her journey and the lessons
distilled from those 100 Lunches with the rest of the world.
Don’t be scared of the word stranger.
Described as one of the freshest new faces on the motivational
speaking circuit, Kaley has polled higher in post-session feedback
than most seasoned speakers. According to Michael Russell, MD at
MoneyQuest, ‘Kaley’s keynote and the book should be mandatory
for anyone employed in a job that has a sales component. There has
never been a more unique prospecting initiative and how when it’s
done right, it can transform you and the potential of your business.’
Kaley is a thought leader with a down-to-earth, everyday manner.
Her inspirational story has the power to cut through corporate
hype and encourage immediate, life-changing action.
Her story has not only inspired many to get out of their
comfort zone, but it has also motivated entrepreneurs,
franchisees and seasoned sales professionals to re-examine
their business networking and connection strategies.
“I promise the experience will
transform your life as well.”
What is 100 Lunches?
Born and raised in Hong Kong, Kaley came to Australia to
pursue an education and other opportunities in 2007. However,
with all her friends and family more than 7,500km away, her
confidence was smashed; she became reserved, timid and shy.
In 2018, as a direct result of her shyness, she found
herself in an extremely embarrassing and humiliating
situation. She knew something had to change.
Kaley committed herself to a new and exciting challenge: to
have lunch with 100 strangers and overcome her shyness.
When she finished her challenge, she realised that not only
had her confidence grown enormously, this experience had
completely transformed every single aspect of her life.
She has since written and published a book about the
journey and she is now speaking all over Australia
to motivate others to step out of their comfort zone,
connect with people, and live a more fulfilled life.
What can it do for you?
“I am sharing this journey with you in the hope it will inspire you to step
out of your comfort zone, change your destiny and unleash your hidden
potential. Do something unexpected, step into your power and impact
others positively. Meet people from different backgrounds. You will be
amazed at how much you can learn from each person, and how the
interactions will help you live a more rewarding and conscious life”
