Be­ing your best you

Break­fast brings life and busi­ness ad­vice

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

IT’S not of­ten that a din­ing room will be full of laugh­ter at 7am, but that is ex­actly what hap­pened at the Dalby Leagues Club on Wed­nes­day.

Dalby busi­nesses, com­mu­nity mem­bers and the Cham­ber came to­gether for a spe­cial break­fast run by BMO.

The break­fast in­cluded a presentation from busi­ness leader, key­note speaker, and au­thor Bruce Sul­li­van.

Mr Sul­li­van has trav­elled around the coun­try and over­seas de­liv­er­ing his mes­sage, and has also been voted Aus­tralian Key­note Speaker of the Year by the Na­tional Speak­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of Aus­tralia.

As guests sat down, still wak­ing up for the day, Mr Sul­li­van took to the floor with en­ergy and hu­mour, dis­cussing the im­por­tance of be­ing “your best you”.

“Ini­tially I was in busi­ness and, when my mum passed away, I got re­ally in­ter­ested in grief and dy­ing and change,” he said.

“I did a lot of study and helped peo­ple in the com­mu­nity and later the ed­u­ca­tion busi­ness be­gan.”

The top­ics dis­cussed ranged from work, to fam­ily, to life in gen­eral, with Mr Sul­li­van shar­ing a num­ber of per­sonal anec­dotes about his own work and fam­ily life.

“I think it’s every par­ent’s re­spon­si­bil­ity to try and be the best ver­sion of them­selves, so you can grow the best ver­sion of your chil­dren.”

“We kind of set­tle with dys­func­tion and dis­sat­is­fac­tion; I did 11 years as a ther­a­pist and saw so many peo­ple miss­ing out on life.”

“I think peo­ple re­ally do want to be the best ver­sion of them­selves, but some­times need a re­minder.”
