The countdown has officially started for the 2020 Luminosity Youth Summit in Port Macquarie this July.
STEM leader Felicity Furey, revolutionary robotic surgeon Munjed Al Muderis, farm boy turned disaster recovery guru Sam Johnson and South African conservation wildlife warrior Hunter Mitchell makeup just some of the incredible line up.
Port Macquarie's own aquanaut Lloyd Godson was also announced as a speaker at this year's Summit at the Port Macquarie Chamber of Commerce breakfast launch on March 12.
The summit itself will take place at The Glasshouse on July 29-31.
This is the eighth year of the Summit, with over 2500 young people between the ages of 15 - 25 experiencing the summit to date.
Each year the overarching summit theme is Dangerous Ideas for Success, but in a new decade the Summit will be a call to arms for the leaders of tomorrow to Amplify their Impact in the world.
Co-Founder and Luminosity Chair Kate Wood-Foye said the line up for 2020 was one of the best yet.
"This is one of our strongest line up yet with over 22 diverse and powerful storytellers, elite sports people, artists, academics and visionaries to join us on the mainstage," Mrs Wood-Foye said.
"We are thrilled to be able to present this year's lineup which aims to encourage and challenge our leaders to amplify their impact in the world.
"Each of our speakers has a unique and powerful story to tell, skills to teach, a secret to share on how they make a difference in the world.
"Luminosity ensures that regional youth hear these key stories and can apply it achieving success and happiness in their own lives."
Bridget Flint from Hastings Secondary College attended Luminosity in 2019 and said it has a huge impact on her life.
"When my mum first told me about Luminosity I didn't think much of it assuming it was just a bunch of speakers but after arriving on day one I realised it was so much more," Bridget said.
"The buzz was electric and despite sitting in the audience you feel very much a participant in what is going on up on stage.
"The whole experience was so incredible. I wish all high students could attend. Over the three days everyone was captivated and my mind is filled with so many unforgettable moments.
"I can't wait to go again this year."
