John Maher

Motivational Speaker Aus


I can’t believe I’m 63 years old, and I certainly can’t believe the twists and turns my life has taken over those 63 years. Originally from Bungaree, a small town in country Victoria Australia; I am the eldest of Jack and Frances Maher’s seven children.

What I remember vividly of my early years was the struggle mum and dad had to bring up such a large family in our 3 bedroom weatherboard home in Bungaree. I remember Church every Sunday, The walk to and from school during the week, sometimes in pouring rain, and looking forward with excitement to football or tennis on the weekend.
