Lunch and Keynote Workshop
We are very fortunate to have very dynamic, inspiring women come to speak at our conference and offer keynotes that are relevant and insightful. This year’s engaging, interactive keynote workshop is:
You Create Your Own Future – Ama-Lia Tamburrini
The stories we tell ourselves about ourselves and our world have the power to shape our future. That means that you have the power within you to change your life and create the future you want. In this workshop, run by an epidemiologist turned entrepreneur, Ame-Lia Tamburrini will challenge you to look at the stories you are telling yourself and bravely ask the question: What is the future I want for myself? Gain inspiration as she shares her own story of transformation, then dive in to rewrite your own story and create a future with endless possibilities.
