Planetarium Rotary Networking Breakfast with Guest Speaker Jeremy Scott – Round the World Cyclist
Cost: $25 (Full Breakfast)
Major open heart surgery as a four-year- old child taught Jeremy that life was precious and
something to cherish. He began to see life as a rollercoaster ride, filled with challenges and
experiences. Some of those challenges were forced upon him, others were of his own design.
On the 5 th October 2011, Jeremy began a challenge that was of his own design, a journey that was
many years in the planning; a 2 ½ year, 51,916km unsupported bicycle ride from London to New
Zealand. As he pedalled his way around the planet he accumulated more than enough kilometres to
circumnavigate the earth.
At the conclusion of this phenomenal journey, Jeremy wrote the highly successful book ‘The Long
Road From a Broken Heart’ and now dedicates his life to inspiring others.
As a passionate supporter of numerous charities, Jeremy has recently been awarded the 2015
Australian Heart Foundation ‘Heart Hero’ Award for his work raising funds, awareness and inspiring
others with heart disease.
Jeremy is an engaging speaker with an extraordinary story about the power of perseverance and
overcoming the odds. – James Kay, Lonely Planet, London
You took us on a journey of hope, persistence, and optimism and showed us that happy endings are
possible. Your light hearted style of telling your story captured our imagination and reminded us that
sheer persistence can get to an end goal. – Julie Mason, District Governor, Rotary District 9800,
Jeremy is a terrific person whose life experiences and natural speaking skills place him in an ideal
position to share his unique and motivational story with all types of audiences. I have no hesitation in recommending him as a speaker, presenter or ambassador who would be a valued addition to any
team or event. – Paul Somerville, Australian International School, Singapore
When Jeremy speaks, people listen. His own courage, determination and relentless desire to persist
through the most demanding of situations, highlights what anyone can achieve in life if they can
muster the courage to take the first step. Through his inspirational and entertaining presentation,
people realise that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary feats.
