Conference MC

Mike King

Mike King has for years been known as the iconic Kiwi entertainer, but that role has changed dramatically.

These days Mike is better known for his work as a prominent mental health educator and motivational speaker with the work he does under his charity – the Key to Life that was established in 2013. Mike was charged by police for riding his Harley Davison without a license. As part of his community service Mike was asked to talk to the students at Taipa Area School in the Far North where 5 students had taken their own lives within several months.

Mike soon worked out that telling jokes was not going to make these kids feel any better so he began to talk about his past as a drug addict, an alcoholic, and someone who has suffered from self-esteem issues for most of his life. Within two weeks Mike was invited to talk at several other schools in the Northland area. Since then KTL has spoken to over 250,000 students and youth and 30,000 adults throughout Aoteoroa.
