Jude Dobson - Keynote speaker - 30 years of finding my way in media…and life!
Jude started on TV in 1989 and has been in a variety of shows since then, (even attempting dancing recently…), but her real passion lies with storytelling. Her strength is in taking the initial ‘what if’ notion from an idea to reality, producing content through her own production company. Her core drivers are social enterprise focused, or preserving history for future generations. She works collaboratively with Government and NGOs to get their messages to families through a video resource called Raising Children, and is currently working on two documentaries. One is about Kiwis in WW1 and another about the RNZAF in WW2 and today.

Corene Walker - The art of self-love
Corene dives deeper into what matters most – people, connections and relationships. In her ‘fantail’ approach, she has crafted a life understanding its intricacies – especially with people and emotional intelligence - that’s been completely on purpose, every winged step of the way. She would love to help you do the same, nailing this thing called people-stuff that comes up every day.
Jane Ludemann - Making the impossible, possible
At the age of 32 Jane was diagnosed with a life threatening cancer called low-grade serous carcinoma. With no way in the world to directly donate to or fundraise for research on her cancer - she created a charity (cureourovariancancer.org) for the 1 in 1000 women like her.
Kate Hesson - Reinvention - don't be afraid
Kate is a qualified mediator and practiced as a commercial lawyer for nearly two decades. Much of her time has been spent in Dunedin, but there have been moments of bravery – including stints in Kenya and Argentina. Kate wants to encourage others to brave and think outside the box.
