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.

Guest Speakers: Neryl East & Michael McKeogh

Neryl & Michael’s topic: 

Disrupt Your Life: How to achieve the extraordinary through the choices you make every day!

What would your life be like if you achieved something remarkable – beyond what you dreamed you could do?

How would your business be different if your team showed up every day ready to take action for extraordinary results?

The lives of Wollongong couple Neryl East and Michael McKeogh took a shocking turn in 2010 when Mike narrowly survived an accident that left him wheelchair-bound and with amnesia.

Disregarding doctors’ predictions, he focused on the daily actions that would get him better – and set a goal that seemed laughable; to get selected on the Australian team in the sport of surf ski paddling.

Mike and Neryl’s story will remind you that your future is shaped by the choices you make every day. You can, at any time, decide to disrupt your own life.

About Neryl and Mike:

Neryl East is a Certified Speaking Professional and Amazon best-selling author who shows current and future leaders how to be heard, stand out and command influence.

Michael McKeogh owns and operates a highly successful fibre optics business which has won numerous national and local awards, including Illawarra Business of the Year.
