Global adventurer sharing his stories in Shawano

Leon Logothetis from the Netflix documentary “The Kindness Diaries” will be in Shawano from 6-8 p.m. Aug. 28 at the Shawano Lake County Park Pavilion, W5791 Lake Drive to share his inspirational message and stories.

Logothetis has made it his life mission to use the experiences gained during his world travel to help others live and love fully. In “The Kindness Diaries,” Logothetis travels around the world on his yellow motorbike, Kindness One, relying only on people’s kindness at each stage of his travel.

In addition to his Netflix documentary, Logothetis is a global adventurer, TV host, producer, author, motivational speaker and all around good guy. He used to be a broker in the city of London where he felt uninspired and chronically depressed, so he gave it all up for a life on the road. This radical life change was inspired by the movie “The Motorcycle Diaries.”

Logothetis is the host of “The Amazing Adventures of a Nobody” and author of a book by the same name. He has appeared on Good Morning America, CNN, FOX, and BBC. Logothetis has also been featured in The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Wall Street Journal, and People Magazine.

“As a kid, I had everything needed on the outside, yet years of bullying left me feeling disempowered, profoundly alone, and emotionally broken,” Logothetis said. “These experiences inspired me to make it my passion in life to ignite a fire in others. Whether that be through kindness or empowerment I believe in the power of human connection to transcend life’s circumstances.”

Networking and appetizers will begin at 6 p.m. with the presentation starting at 6:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased for $20 at the Shawano Country Chamber of Commerce, both CoVantage Credit Union locations in Shawano, and Charlie’s County Market until Aug. 21. Tickets will be available at the door for $30.
