Helen’s talk will focus on the different facets of thought leadership and how you can really stand out with your ideas in practical ways.

Ace Ruele

Ace Ruele is a professional Actor and Mental Coach. Growing up, Ace had his heart set on being a Hollywood Actor but got caught up in the street life which resulted in him being sentenced for robbery with an imitation firearm which cost him 4 and a half years in prison. This was a transformative experience for Ace as it gave him the space and time to reflect and evaluate his whole life. He learned to let go of the desire to just be a youth from the streets and has since featured in Hollywood titles such as, the Legend of Tarzan and Triple A video games, such as planets of the apes VR and the Inpatient.

Ace will breakdown how he made the transition on a psychological level, and how this can be used to achieve personal goals and create an empowering perception about yourself and life. Ace is proof that your past doesn’t have to determine who you are and anything can be achieved once you decided it’s a must to attain it.

She has appeared in national and international media from TV shows to broadsheets to radio debates and corporate talks.

In her talk, Emma will share her story of how being brave and standing up for her ideas has led her to blaze the trail as a thought leader in her niche. She will inspire you to ‘go left’ with your ideas where others are going right and give you the courage to be bold and shout about what you are passionate about. It is a true and rare honour to welcome Emma to speak at EL live.
