Frank Warren is the creator of The Post Secret Project – the world’s most viewed advertisement-free blog with an audience of more than 3 million each month.

The global blog phenomenon, Post Secret, is a community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on the side of a homemade postcard. More than 500,000 exclusive personal secrets have been sent to Warren in recent years – spanning sexual confessions and hidden acts of kindness, to criminal activity and hilarious admissions. Anyone can contribute, following three simple rules: the secret must be true and must never be told to anyone else and it needs to be on a postcard.

The website has received numerous awards for its community contribution since its inception in 2004. These include a special award from the National Mental Health Association for raising awareness and funds for suicide prevention, numerous Webby Awards and 2012 Weblog of the Year at the Annual Weblog Awards. Frank Warren’s 2012 TED talk ranks as one of the most downloaded talks on the popular site.

Australians have contributed their share of soulful secrets to the site with Australia is ranked the third largest contributor, by country.

Alex Young from Handsome Tours said: “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to bring Frank and his very important conversation to Australia. Frank’s talk is a compelling experience for the curious, the caring and the downright voyeuristic amongst us. Frank will provide a profound insight into the shocking, silly and touching nature of human secrets. He will also talk about why he started the blog, its impact and why he has made suicide awareness an important part of his life's work.”

“The internet has provided an open portal for people to share, open up anonymously and learn from each other. Post Secret is a safe and anonymous place giving a voice to those that are not usually heard and allows people to share their untold stories.

“As one of the contributors said – ‘the things that make us feel so abnormal are actually the things that make us all the same.’ It’s the essence of this thought that makes sharing so empowering.”
