Kevin Humphreys is an inspiring, relatable and transformative keynote speaker, facilitator, author and helicopter pilot. He’s well-known for smashing stereotypes and transforming self-leadership.
Dux of his pilot’s course at just 21, Kevin went on to serve in the Army for 20 years flying Black Hawk and Chinook helicopters. He deployed on numerous overseas operations and, towards the peak of his career contemplated suicide and suffered a breakdown due to a cocktail of PTSD, anxiety, depression, alcohol abuse and a toxic culture; it wasn’t a war zone that tore him apart.
Kevin not only got back on his feet but also back in the air again, spending the next ten years as a Search and Rescue helicopter pilot, flight instructor, flight examiner, Chief Pilot and Director of Operations. Today his mission is to inspire businesses and the people within them to engage in NOBLE self-leadership.
He was recognised as the role model for a Military Order of William recipient in the Netherlands (their equivalent of the Victoria Cross). An exceptional leader, Kevin’s operational approach encouraged the Dutch Air Force to change their tactical response after witnessing his operational excellence.
Kevin is the Mental Health Ambassador for AIRBUS Australia Pacific, a contributor to international media, member of the Veteran Advisory Group for the Australian War Memorial redevelopment and graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
He has been awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for his command and courageous leadership under fire in Afghanistan and recognised as a 2023 community Citizen of the Year for his dedication and impact as a mental health advocate and founder of COR INFINITUS which gives dignity and respect to the families of those who’ve served our nation and were overwhelmed by their battle within.

Highly recommended! Listening to his story, what struck me most was the personal courage he demonstrated time and again. Kevin’s messages are positive and he is living proof that despite PTSD, you can get back to the top of your game.
