The worlds first EMPOWERMENT academy delivered THE PACIFIC WAY!






Global Influencer | Global Speaker and Trainer | Military Veteran

Dion Jensen is a global corporate and community champion.


He is known in the corporate environment for increasing engagement, productivity and revenue, always providing a positive financial ROI. However, he is able to do this across multiple countries and cultures because of how he makes people FEEL. He makes them feel like a VIP. No matter their position or title.


His unique ability to make people feel valuable, through the philosophies and programs he created himself, makes him an in-demand inspirational speaker, corporate trainer and corporate consultant all over the world.


Yet the people of his local community in New Zealand are used to seeing him in his hooded sweat top or 'hoodie,' running programs for Troubled Youth and Women who have been subjected to rape and domestic violence.


A clinically endorsed author on mental health, and number one trending author on #Crisisleadership, Dion delivers from a position of total authority.


Regardless, if he is helping a Fortune 500 company increase their profit, solving mental health challenges, or issues in his local community, Dion achieves all of these things through his ethos of empowerment.


Now you benefit from his vision because he has put all his content in ONE place...right here inside The Lion Academy.

Results Matter

"If you don't believe the messenger; you won't believe the message." 

Featuring alongside names such as Oprah Winfrey, Simon Sinek and J.K. Rowling, with a speech sent to 30 million people, logic says that Dion knows what he is talking about!


When you look at his Crisis Leadership Course, he created the content because he has actually led in crisis!


When you do his VIP of Mental Health course, you are accessing content that doesn't exist anywhere else, because he wrote it!


And if you've seen his speech...he has been to hell and back, struggled in the mirror and hated who he saw. He battled back from the darkness to now be a shining light to those who are still stuck there.


The manner in which is does this is by mapping the journey, so it is simple to follow. Not easy, because ease relates to effort, but it is simple to follow.


As a clinically endorsed author of books on Mental Health and as a real time author of books on Crisis Leadership and Management, as well as featuring in other authors books, he is an authority in his space. There is no hypothetcial information in his Academy. It is all lived content.


And because Dion has trained 1000's of people across multiple industries,  he has a specific strategy that makes it very simple to learn the contents of his courses, no matter who you are and where you are from!



We never forget where we come from. Serving our local community remains at the forefront of our mission. So, I will make my global community available to my local community, and our corporate and commercial missions will fund our community initiatives.

How do you stay confident through personal or professional crisis?


How does that affect your body and your mind and what do you do about it?


At Massey University in Palmerston North, at The Rugby Institute of New Zealand where The All Blacks Train, Dion Jensen and Freya Thomson will show you exactly what to do.


They'll show you how to keep control in situations where you feel you have no control and how to release that stored energy in the body.




As a result of sitting next to a suicidal Farmer on a domestic Air New Zealand flight, Farmers For Farmers Mental Health Support was born.


Only farmers understand what farmers go through and only someone like Dion Jensen who has actual solutions to self-harm and suicide can deliver this content.


It's the perfect combination for a group of New Zealanders that would prefer to be given the tools and left alone. Come along. You'll be in good company.


A bbq and beers will be provided.

We have booked out the entire lodge, so only women on the course will be there, I will hold and protect the space and speak to the TRAUMA, the we will interact with the horses and 3 female healers, who are all survivors of one of our 3T's.


Our Signature Mental Health Courses

When you combine Building or Re-Building Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem, to Understanding Your Value, Identity and Purpose, to Dealing With Trauma and Crisis and Knowing How You Will React Emotionally you become a very powerful human being indeed!

Make Peace

With The Mirror

This course covers The 4 L's of Confidence.'

Unless you make peace with the mirror, nothing else is going to work.

Self-Love is key, but there is a process to achieving that. And it starts in the mirror!

The VIP of Mental Health

The VIP of Mental Health is an amazing compass, lens and filter to understand where people get their VALUE from.

An original concept created by Dion that shows the relationships between Value, Identity and Purpose for a human being.   

Your Subconscious


You will react to pressure, stress, trauma and pain the way you have trained yourself or allowed others to train you to react.

When you understand how to re-train, re-brief and re-deploy Your Subconscious Bodyguards, then you regain control!

There is a STRATEGY!

Dion is well known in the industry for his skill in 'strategy' and 'mapping.' Due to this, every course is a jigsaw piece, which may be the one piece that you are looking for , or fits into a larger strategy that Dion has designed. To make it simple for our people every course follows a natural and logical progression. (Like a river!)


Dion also understands that you may not need the entire course, just specific lessons or modules, so he has structured his content, so you can self-select what you need. 


We focus on teaching you how to deal with:







There is also an Members Cafe inside the Lion Academy so you can interact with the other participants within the same space! (No outside FB groups or WhatsApp chat group overload!)


And because its Dion's academy, there will always be more and more courses coming online!

Category #1 - YOURSELF


Life starts with YOU being happy with YOU! Once you understand WHO you are, what gives you VALUE and what you WANT in life, then you can get on with life. In the mirror, at home, in the workplace and in the world.

Course #2 - OTHER PEOPLE


Once you understand YOU, then you can begin to focus on understanding what OTHERS value, how they communicate and how they act under pressure. Emotional and Social Intelligence are critical life skills!

Category #3 - CHALLENGES 


Life is not all sunshine and rainbows. It gets tough sometimes. Whether that is a result of trauma, death, an economic crisis, COVID, something in life is going to challenge you. So we teach you the skills on leading yourself and others during crisis. No matter what that crisis is.

Course #4 - MONEY


In my tribe, money has the LEAST amount of value, because we are motivated by family, friends and standing for what is right in the world. So, we teach how to serve and provide value to others and THEN get paid accordingly. We like to earn #nobleincome in our lives.


Dion's PRIVATE mentoring programs now available PUBLICLY!

Dion is a special individual, with a wealth of experience in 'life areas' only a few would have been exposed to.

Dion presented a half-day workshop for my company on leadership and conflict management and he brought all his skill sets to the session and managed to bring a group of very experienced individuals back to reality.

He used the full range of his experiences to relate to some serious scenarios in discussion.

I would strongly recommend Dion to any organisation or individual for coaching, training or speaking.

He is able to communicate in a clear decisive manner, with authority but with passion and a friendly heart.

Dion the Lion! With the ferocious steel mental mindset but yet the majestic bighearted lion! It is rare to find a trainer who had been there done that - living on the edge of life or death on a daily basis due to your past job nature. This ex-military experience was already an eye opener to how strong a mindset Dion portrays to us. His confidence and ability to manage fear makes us look at ours in perspective. Mind-blowing personal experience coupled with his global sales experience brought us an intensive 8 hours of training helping us to shift our paradigm and mental states! High recommend Dion if you are seeking for a trainer who speaks from his heart, mind and soul!

Jaslyn Ng

Award-Winning Top Financial Consultant

I attended Dion’s Coaching Session. His delivery skills are absolutely stunning!

You can feel that the delivery is not just verbal but it is from his heart, mind and soul. It is genuinely coming from his life experiences. Full of energy.

His skills set is so diverse. Starting from leadership, team building, networking, change management to motivational speaking to name a few. I was fortunate to experience a few of his wide repertoire of skills.

He makes each participant feel important and engaged in the session. Makes you want to attend more and more of his sessions. Great personality.

Vyjayanthi Devanathan

Senior Financial Consultant

As a master of ceremonies and event host at a recent Singapore conference with over 120 academics and working professionals, Dion was the lead off speaker out of five speakers.

I can state from my front row advantage that he hit the mark with his message 'Make Peace with the Mirror' to our SE Asian / Expat audience.

He did a great job of inspiring them and stayed right on track with his TEDx style presentation. I can highly recommend him to any organisation to empower their employees or business connections to live more fulfilling lives after listening to him speak with authority, compassion, humour and brevity.

Dion Jensen - No words or adjectives can describe Dion. He is remarkable individual who believes in extending Acts of Kindness those who are down and out. I was one such individual.

I was totally down and out and got a message from Dion and this was by chance that I clicked on his web-page. I was apprehensive about the Boot Camp program at first but once I attended and completed it, it is a truly a remarkable program. 

Dion is different and his willingness to help and coach is extraordinary.

His boot camp was one of the BEST that I have attended to date and highly recommend anyone who wants to make that journey form trainer to speaker to attend. 

Sanjeev Gathani

Compliance & Risk Management Expert

Dion’s talk at the Health & Wellbeing summit was profound in its simplicity. 

He told us many individual stories of people, with real life struggles, any one of whom could have been, or might still be, a member of our own business. 

He talked about how bullies worked.

He challenged us to reflect on how our own behaviour as leaders, however well meaning, could be perceived as being the bully in the room. 

His talk finished with me wanting to learn more about what he had learnt, and he has generously provided me with both of his books.

Dion’s talk provided rich food for thought, and for that reason, was hugely appreciated.
