The INSPIRING AUTHENTIC LEADERS Event brings four highly successful business people and industry leaders together to share personal experiences that perhaps have not been shared publicly before, and connect with our audience on a deeper level.
When you attend an INSPIRING Event you will be taken on a journey through sharing. A journey that the teller may be sharing for the first time, a story to inspire individuals, stimulate discussion, create community, and make a difference.These Inspiring Events are part of The Inspiring Australia movement, a national series of local community events that are occurring simultaneously on or around the same date each quarter featuring hundreds of guest speakers who have each faced and overcome life challenges and adversity. These inspiring speakers will be sharing some of their personal journey, their passion and how they overcame their biggest fears and hurdles to achieve success. This is an event about getting into the nitty-gritty of life so be prepared to break out the tissues for the lows and in the next breath laugh along with the highs.
