Leon Logothetis is a global adventurer, motivational speaker & philanthropist. It wasn't always that way. He used to be a broker in the city of London where he felt uninspired and chronically depressed. He gave it all up for a life on the road. This radical life change was inspired by the inspirational movie The Motorcycle Diaries. The days of living and working behind his 'slab of wood' (or desk to the layman) are well and truly over. His new passion: Finding ways for your inner rebel (that voice that tells you, you are worth so much more than you think) to come out and play.

The inner rebel tells you that your life is yours. And anything you dream of is possible. Anything. And that the fuel for all this delicious potential is simple: Kindness and harnessing the power of human connection. Doing it all with a smile on your face and a spring in your step! Leon has visited more than 90 countries and traveled to every continent.

He is the host of the TV series Amazing Adventures Of A Nobody, which is broadcast across the world by National Geographic International and, over the course of three seasons, sees Leon cross America, the United Kingdom and Europe on just 5 dollars, 5 pounds, and 5 euros a day, respectively. He recently returned from filming his new TV show The Kind Way Around, in which he circumnavigated the globe on his vintage yellow motorbike Kindness One, giving life changing gifts along the way to unsuspecting good Samaritans. All of this whilst relying on the kindness of strangers. Leon is no stranger to adventure. He teamed up with First Book® & drove a car from London to Mongolia raising money to buy 10,000 books for underprivileged children in America.

He also drove a vintage London taxi across America, giving free cab rides to the needy and working with Classwish to bring hope back to the schools of America. Leon has documented his travels for numerous media outlets including Good Morning America, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Outside, Good, Psychology Today, and The New York Times. His new book The Kindness Diaries, published by Readers Digest, was published December of 2014 it chronicles Leon's circumnavigation of the globe on kindness.

    "Engaging, inspiring and authentic", that's what people had to say about Leon's presentation at Inspire Café. Audience members connected to his story and subsequently felt more inspired to embrace adventure, trust more in the goodness of others, and be a positive contribution in the world."

    -Scott Theisen, Co-owner of Inspire Café

    "His entertaining and thought provoking presentation to our staff left us inspired and determined to tell our students and others on staff that we "see" each and every one. Many discussed after the presentation that this seemingly simple act, when done consistently with all students, has the potential to ripple throughout our school community and ultimately have a positive and profound effect on our educational system."
