2007 Day of Inspiration - Secrets of Achievement
In our inaugural year 2007, Day of Inspiration began its relationship with the Four Seasons Hotel in George Street, Sydney. From the opening speaker, Olympic Gold Medallist beach volleyballer Kerrie Pottharst through to Red Balloon days CEO Naomi Simson, World Creative Director Siimon Reynolds and then a special guest performance by Mark Gable from the Choir Boys, the day just went from strength to strength.
Hosted by Triple M's Rob Duckworth, Pay it Forward founder Blake Beattie and Vega 95.3s Rebecca Wilson, no sooner had the day started than we were closing the event with insights and anecdotes from former Australian Cricket Captain Steve Waugh. It truly was a memorable day and it certainly set the bar high for the 2008 event.
The feedback from attendees and speakers alike from the inaugural event confirmed its outstanding success, and cemented an idea that first formed on a Tour de Cure training ride. The idea had been developed and turned into something real and of benefit to all attending and to the event’s beneficiary, Tour de Cure, in the fight against cancer.
