KEYNOTE

Biography

Liam Knight is the co-founder of the White Knight Foundation which aims to assist young victims of youth violence and their families. As a victim himself, he was determined to prevent similar acts of violence from occurring and worked alongside his brother Shane to design a program that not only assists the injured, but creates educational programs that targets the youth before they begin to go out. By arming kids with information, as well as showing them the reality of senseless actions, the White Knight Foundation aims to target the grassroots of schools as a preventive approach to these issues.

 

Liam has presented to thousands of students, raised and donated thousands of dollars to assist others and was a 2016 NSW Young Australian of the Year finalist for the work he has done.
