Agapi Stassinopoulos is a phenomenon.  Mentor to our co-founder, Steve Pirie, she will change the way you look at being productive with her presentation on Why Nurturing Self Helps Your Business. While her sister, Arianna Huffington, was doing research for her book about Greek mythology, Agapi’s love for the gods and goddesses was ignited and led to two books of her own, Conversations with the Goddesses and Gods and Goddesses in Love, as well as a one-woman show and a PBS special. Agapi speaks and conducts seminars worldwide empowering others to create the lives they want. She lives in Los Angeles and New York and is a frequent blogger for The Huffington Post. Her new book is titled Unbinding the Heart: A Dose of Greek Wisdom, Generosity, and Unconditional Love (Hay House).

You are in for a treat next up with our co-founders Sarah and Libby, with a guest appearance by weeks old baby Izzy no doubt. Well-being and Wonder will be the topic of discussion and you better buckle in because it will be a high energy, action packed presentation that will leave you curious about how to get more ‘wonder’ in your life and from Libby, The Biggest Loser: Transformed super coach, how to get the best out of your health.

Its looking like Friday morning will start with a powerful presentation from Sarah Hollaway with her talk on Nurture your nature - becoming who you really are. Sarah began her working life as a mergers and acquisitions lawyer at a leading international law firm. It was a tough gig as you can imagine. In pursuit of balance, Sarah and her partner started a creative side project in late 2014 capitalising on a gap they discovered in the health food market for matcha green tea powder. Three years on, this vibrant green superfood is one of the world's premier health food trends and Matcha Maiden is leading the way with a growing community of over 1000 stockists, 80,000 social media followers and a very bright (green) future.

Time for a cuppa and a breath (and a biccy, go on)…you’ll need it because Janine Allis will blow your mind next. She has an astounding story of success. She will talk to you about Nurturing the love of change. “I’ve had no formal business training, just a simple common sense approach to business.  I did not know what the traditional path looked like so I made it up along the way” she admits. Janine’s road to success was less conventional than most… her way was to work 3 jobs so that she could fulfil her dream of travelling the world and let life take her on a journey.  This journey took Janine around the world where she took on roles from a nanny in a little village in France to working for rock and movie stars on a yacht in the South of France and the Caribbean. You will sit there shaking your head in amazement at her story and no doubt gain inspiration to keep pushing forward in your business.

Our speakers will change the way you think. They will inspire you with how they 'made it' against the odds and the best part is that you get to hang out with them for 5 days….they don’t just pop in, speak, and then leave. You can have breakfast with them, a drink beside the pool or even organise a private coaching session. 

But we also have amazing guests like Deborah Hutton, Elle Halliwell, Tegan Martin, Olivia Carr, Amanda Whitely and many more.
