2008 Day of Inspiration - Secrets of Achievement
With the success of the previous year's event Day of Inspiration 2008 saw an even larger crowd pack the Four Seasons Hotel. The day was opened by sales service expert Belinda Yabsley who had a distinguished career at Mercedes Benz. Belinda was followed by the inspiration of Olympic Gold medallist Duncan Armstrong who today is one of Australia's foremost commentators in the area of swimming.
HR expert Avril Henry then followed on stage presenting an excellent account on corporate performance, management and leadership.
Andrew May certainly got the crowd going with his ability to hold people accountable for performance, recharging and productivity and his energising gig took us through until the lunch break. Soon after lunch Olympic and Commonwealth Games medallist Brennon Dowrick took the stage and knocked out a very inspiring key note speech which was followed by a pummel horse demonstration. This had the crowd on its feet and cheering.
No doubt one of the highlights of the day was Australian Forensic expert Peter Baines who took the audience through a roller coaster ride of emotions speaking about the horrific challenges faced by the forensic team in the face of the Indian Ocean Boxing Day tsunami.
The day was punctuated by the comedy of the Comedy Channel's Cam Knight and the dynamic vocals of Australia's new country music duo McAllister Kemp. There's no doubt that this was one fantastic Day of Inspiration!
