Nick Eakin

Nick believes in the power of the mind in increasing self determination potential. Certain social structures and decreased self-determination contribute to social inequity in disadvantaged communities by making it difficult to increase individual and collective wellbeing (physical and mental health).

If the social structures (school curriculum, cost of nutrition for example) can be changed, along with boosting the self-determination potential that’s possible for an individual, there will be a shift towards greater social equity, and thus greater wellbeing.

Fascination with motivation and empowering behaviours is a direct result of my life and its journey.


Nick has spent more than a decade working with Indigenous communities of Australia and Canada to facilitate individual and community empowerment. In his present role as General Manager - Regions with Jawun, Nick works with remote and regional communities, Indigenous leaders, corporate executives, grass roots and social enterprise initiatives.

Nick completed an Executive Education at Harvard University and the Masters of Business Administration at the University of South Australia. He has also completed a Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne.
