Description

Who is Kate Seselja?

Kate Seselja has spoken openly about her former addiction in many forums, including an appearance on ABC television's episode of You Can't Ask That which focussed on gambling addiction.

(Source: http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/canberra-life/kate-seselja-from-pokie-addiction-to-leading-a-united-nations-wellbeing-conversation-20170605-gwkhut.html)

After years of struggling with a serious gambling issue, to the point of considering suicide, Kate Seselja has set about to help others who may have lost hope. Kate’s extraordinary story is all the more compelling because of her commitment to authenticity, vulnerability and honesty.

Kate’s journey has seen her recognised as a Telstra Business of the Year finalist, taken her to the United Nations as a Goodwill Ambassador for the World Kindness Australia Movement; and certified by the United Nations as a Sustainable Development Advocate.

Yet, in her own words, Kate is very humble about her achievements:

"I have peace in my mind, I'm comfortable in my skin, I'm connected to my purpose, and I'm just trying to be a good human being." Canberra Times, October 15, 2016

Next Month Kate is scheduled to speak at the TEDxCanberra “Momentum” program. We thought you would you like to hear her story in person.

There is no onsite parking but there is parking available on Bagot Rd and Barker St Subiaco or the carport off Bagot Rd. DISABILITY ACCESS - Disability parking will be allocated on request. Accessible for mobility aids. Entrance around the back of the church.

A light supper will be offered. Tea and coffee will be provided on the night
