Australia Day Ambassador

The Town of Bassendean 2020 Australia Day Ambassador is Julian Pace.

Julian is a finalist, WA Local Hero 2020, Founder of Happiness Co and a public speaker.

In just three short years, government health worker Julian Pace lost his father, his best friend and then his cousin – all to suicide. Devastated by his loss, Julian fell apart. Then, using a mix of medical and self-help including diet, exercise, and practicing gratitude, he rebuilt his life.  Determined to turn his pain into purpose, Julian became an ambassador for R U OK. He then launched the social enterprise Happiness Co. Through workshops, webinars, online and face-to-face programs for individuals, organisations and teams, Julian’s programs help people address the causes of unhappiness, so they can create lives they truly want. Happiness Co also includes the Man Enough program, which aims to help reduce the shocking rate of male suicide in Australia by supporting men to develop the tools they need to overcome life’s challenges.  Now living with happiness and purpose, Julian is helping more than 50,000 people do the same, showing by example that it’s possible to turn life around.  Here Julian speak at the Australia Day Celebration and Fireworks event on the main stage.
