Shyness is something we rarely talk about let alone elevate in our loud, often brash, TikTok-fuelled all singing and dancing world.
Meet Melbourne-based Kaley Chu, the founder of 100 Lunches with Strangers, a movement she founded off the back of her best-selling book of the same name where Kaley shared her journey from a shy immigrant to a confident TEDx Speaker in just 2 years by getting out of her comfort zone and arranging 100 lunches with complete strangers.
When COVID hit she turned virtual and has arranged over 350 lunches with strangers (ranging from CEOs, billionaires and even celebrities like Shane Jacobson), and now works with others to help build their confidence, grow their network and unleash their potential.
Kaley has spoken at over 200 events, both in-person and virtual, over the last 3 years to spread positive energy and help others grow and connect. She’s also created two strong communities with over 4,000 members combined, with weekly events to help people connect and grow. (One targeted at personal development and the other supporting Asians in Australia). Kaley is in her 30’s, happily married and a proud mum of two boys.
