Feb 5, 2022

Eradicating bullying and abuse

Have you ever experienced bullying or abuse?

Maybe it was at school. 

Maybe it was in a previous workplace. 

Maybe it was in a relationship.

Or maybe bullying or abuse isn’t in the past for you. 

Maybe you’re experiencing or witnessing it right now.

Today, I’m chatting with Brett Murray – founder of the Safe Heart Foundation. He’s made it his life’s mission to educate children, teenagers, and adults around ways to prevent bullying and abuse – now and in the future.

We’re taking a deep dive into Brett’s past experiences with bullying and the paths that led him to where he is today – and it’s been a beautiful journey.

But before we get started, I just want to say – if you or someone close to you is experiencing bullying or abuse and you don’t know what to do, please call Lifeline on 13 11 14. 

You don’t need to handle this on your own.

On a lighter note, I know you’ll enjoy Brett’s infectious energy and enthusiasm during our interview. He shows it’s definitely possible to turn any life around.

Let’s get started.


For over 30 years, Brett Murray has been a noteworthy leader in the education and corporate sector, speaking on how to build healthy, positive and productive communities.

He’s an author of 5 books, has been nominated 5 times for Australian of the year, and is also the cofounder and CEO of the world’s most effective bullying education and prevention charity – the Make Bullying History Foundation.

Beyond that, he can also be credited with contributions to the community at a state and national level.

Brett shares from the heart in this series, hard lessons, failures and victories. From being a dad and husband to his wife of nearly 30 years, Brett has plenty to share with men of all ages and all walks of life.

As Brett says, “History has to be made by someone, It might as well be you!”
