IWIB Lunch with Michelle Payne 14th February 2020

We are delighted to have Michelle Payne join us at the first IWIB event for 2020!

Michelle will be joined on stage with Richard Morecroft - facilitator in an armchair style chat and finishing with an audience Q & A!

Michelle Payne is a true iconic Australian hero, a sportswoman whose remarkable story has inspired people worldwide.

The first ever female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup, she made "the race that stops a nation" a race that inspired one. Her graciousness in the face of untold triumph and tragedy is now a beacon for many people.

Michelle will be written into our history books as that rare kind of icon, one who lives with gratitude and humility.
