Patrician Brothers Catholic College Blacktown

Daniel Merza, award-winning speaker, author, coach and mentor, joined our Year 11 boys in a motivational talk getting them prepared for 2020!

Daniel's mission in life is to inspire tenacity, optimism and empowerment in the lives of others, especially the next generation.

He worked with Patrician Brothers to incorporate his 'Game plan for greatness' program into our existing wellbeing and positive psychology framework, with focus on leadership, resilience, optimism, emotional intelligence, growth mindset, hope, relationships, character traits, and maintaining good mental health.

Having worn the "underdog" cap growing up, Daniel's story can be summed up in three words - "Defying the odds". Bullied for a decade, diagnosed with a mental illness aged 13, and labelled as a student with “no hope”, Daniel faced up to his tormentors at 16 and turned his life around – to create a life of achievements as an , Event Host MC and Chartered Accountant.
