National Drug Awareness
Tony Parsons worked inside the country’s covert drug operations environment for many years, seeing the worst of the worst. His critical role in some of the highest profile undercover drug investigations, and many others so protected they have never seen the light of day, earned him several extinguished awards for diligence, life saving bravery and commitment. National Drug Awareness was founded to provide a platform of education and clarity for families to positively draw upon and create confidence in youth.
Through humility and passion he reinforces the message to youth of their individual importance, and to remain true to their unique purpose in life when faced with challenge or social pressures.
Today he works with elite athletes in tier one professional sporting codes on a range of drug and alcohol issues as well as criminal association and match fixing. He regularly speaks to school communties across Australia and overseas to ensure they have relevant and timely drug, alcohol and vaping information. Tony is also currently contracted by government departments and the Australian Defence Force to provide best practise policy and
information sessions to its personnell.
He is a board member of the charity organisation ‘The Good Life Project’, and provides time speaking at charity functions to raise awareness of empowerment through positive choices. He has a keen interest in the relevancy of vaping amongst todays youth and works to deliver a down-to-earth approach of the harm associated with vaping.
Tony is acknowledged as being an exceptionally unique keynote speaker and able to deliver key points to his audience for them to digest and move forward with.
Tony’s compelling presentation style teaches drug awareness through the power of storytelling. Sharing the stark realities, he inspires young people to say “no”, from a position of confidence, focus and resilience. His broader message smacks of experience translated into credible absorbing targeted education.

This presentation raised our awareness and was highly relevant in addressing the fear that parents with teenage children face. Delivered with incredible authority by someone who has walked through this unique and dangerous culture, the stories and anecdotes were both confronting and powerful. Every parent needs to hear and absorb this message.
Parent session attendee | Marist College, Ashgrove
National Drug awareness delivers specific and confronting insight into the Australian drug culture and their approach systematically dismantles the flawed perceptions of socially acceptable drug use. They create a pathway to have open conversations with our players on this challenging issue. Singularly the best presentation I have ever seen on illicit drugs.
