ABOUT DANIEL MERZA
Daniel Merza is a student wellbeing specialist, award-winning international speaker, and author.
Having worn the “underdog” cap growing up, Daniel’s story can be summed up in three words – “Defying the odds”.
Bullied for a decade, diagnosed with a mental illness at 13, and labelled as a student with “no hope”, Daniel faced up to his tormentors at 16 and turned his life around.
During an illustrious corporate career spanning 15 years, Daniel spent considerable time developing the weaker spots of younger staff – such as tenacity, emotional intelligence, stress management, self-confidence and leadership – as part of his senior leadership roles.
Having witnessed first-hand as a manager the degree to which young people lacked the essential skills to thrive post-school, Daniel left behind a six-figure corporate pay packet to embark upon his mission to inspire tenacity, optimism and empowerment in the next generation and “get them ready” to flourish in the real world.
Daniel has developed clever and fun ways to inspire thousands of people worldwide. He has been featured on radio and media outlets, and his work has also been acknowledged in NSW Parliament.
Daniel was a keynote speaker at the Middle East Youth Expo 2020 in Abu Dhabi, the largest youth event in the region with 10,000 students attending. Daniel also toured the UAE, speaking at high schools in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
Daniel's book "GET THE MONKEYS OFF YOUR BACK" is available at www.getthemonkeysoffyourback.com.
