Paris Mitchell is an inspiration.
As a motivational speaker his insight into his life and how that can help others is nothing short of brilliant. Not afraid to use his own story to help others, Paris’ passion, intellect, and experience all come together beautifully when he addresses a crowd. I have had Paris speak at a number of engagements. His engaging, thought-provoking, and humbling delivery has left a positive mark on me and so many other people who have heard him speak.
Whether the audience is a corporate, sporting, school, not-for- profit or government one Paris’ motivational, resilience and change message is wonderfully delivered.Mark Fitzpatrick - CEO St Vincent DePaul Society W.A.
If Paris was an entertainer I think he would be called a triple threat, he is certainly this in the form of a motivational speaker. Paris not only speaks well, he uses his own music and creates art throughout his presentation that keeps the audience engaged but also focussed on the key message he wants to communicate. Paris has a significant life story and he balances his lessons learnt to inform, educate and inspire. These lessons can be applied more broadly to leadership or specifically to a number of issues we as a community are facing now. Whilst it is his lived experience that inspires it his ability to add science and research to his points that allows the audience to think through different ways to solve problems. Thanks for being such a key part of our Youth Summit on Youth Wellbeing and Mental Health.Ross Kyrwood - CEO - YMCA WA

His ability to engage with his audience and apply his message of resilience and a desire for change helped us to identify areas of improvement in our daily personal and working lives where we can apply change and overcome challenges. We walked away feeling encouraged and ready to take on the challenges ahead.
Thank you Paris for sharing your story with our team.’Phil Oliver - Director - Fleet West
Paris is an influential speaker and entertainer. He is energetic, charismatic, and his commitment to the event was exceptional. Not only was he great with entertaining the Expresstival crowd, he engaged with our volunteers leading up to the event and has been working with us since the event to further conversations relating to poverty in Western Australia.
His story is particularly relevant to Expresstival, which encourages people to talk about the challenges in our community caused by poverty. I admire his ability to share that story with vulnerability and authenticity.
I will definitely take any opportunities to work with Paris in future.Aaron Young - Founder of Expresstival

“Paris Mitchell’s attendance at our Mental Health Expo provided our students with a personal and engaging experience in which they learnt about mental health, recovery, values and goals. Students really enjoyed the workshops he ran and left with a healthy curiosity in how they could make values-driven change and enhance their positive mental health and coping. Paris was extremely professional, relatable and worked well with all staff and students. I would highly recommend his services for any schools looking to engage their students in thought-provoking education around mental health, coping and recovery.”Matt Brennan-Jones - Armadale Senior High School

Paris Mitchell was asked to speak at our Annual Passages Race day on the 9 th April 2016 in front of over 250 people about his life and the challenges he has overcome. I feel very fortunate to have heard Paris speak as he was so honest and real not only about his story but about what the greater community can do to support young people to get back on track.
Paris is such an inspirational speaker he captivated the room and held their attention with his articulate presentation, he demonstrated skill and confidence beyond his years.Gayle Mitchell - Senior Manager - Passages Resource Centre
I was nothing short of blown away by Paris' presentation. Paris is a truly remarkable young man and one of the most engaging presenters I have ever had the privilege of listening to. He is extremely eloquent and relates his story in a way that connects with all members of his audience.
The feedback from the staff who attended his presentation was overwhelmingly positive and without exception all staff reported it was the highlight of the day. Paris' story and the manner in which he communicates with his audience, would make him the ideal presenter in any setting.Shani Jarvis - HR Advisor - St Bartholomew's House
