Collective Hub - - CONTENTS -

Kick. Start. Smart. made its Mel­bourne de­but on Novem­ber 25, 2016; wrap­ping up our KSS event se­ries for 2016. The re­mark­able line-up of speak­ers were gen­er­ous with shar­ing their lessons learnt in busi­ness and life.

A huge thanks goes to them all: Daniel Flynn (Thankyou Group), who opened the day; Dan Gre­gory (The Im­pos­si­ble In­sti­tute), who kindly took on MC du­ties in the morn­ing be­fore re­turn­ing to the stage later on; Lisa Mes­sen­ger (Col­lec­tive Hub), who led a con­ver­sa­tion with good friend, and multi-tal­ented en­tre­pre­neur and en­ter­tainer, Natalie Bass­ingth­waighte (Chi Khi), be­fore open­ing up to a tell-all Q+A with the au­di­ence; Bruce Poon Tip (G Ad­ven­tures); Trent Innes (Xero); Phill Nos­wor­thy (Switch Inc.), who flew in from China (yes, China) to MC the sec­ond half of the day; Emma Sei­bold (Barre Body); Mark McDon­ald (App­ster); Justin Dry (Vi­nomofo); Jus­tine Flynn (Thankyou Group); and artist David Brom­ley.

The day would not have been pos­si­ble with­out our fab­u­lous spon­sors: Acer, Lexus, G Ad­ven­tures, Xero and Bank of Mel­bourne, as well as our won­der­ful team of ex­hibitors: ClassPass, Square, Pro­quo, Wellineux, Bub­ble De­signs, MOO and Tor­rens Univer­sity Aus­tralia.

A huge thanks to Cre­ative Hire for build­ing the event from the ground up and to Mel­bourne Park Func­tion Cen­tre and Mi­cro­hire for host­ing us on the day. A spe­cial thanks also goes to Be­spoke Botan­ics for styling the beau­ti­ful stage in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Dann Event Hire and Eclec­tic Cre­ative, Ja­son Ed­wards for pho­tograph­ing the day, Lov­ing Earth for the de­li­cious treats, plus Re­treat Your­self, Love Ludie, Napoleon Perdis, MooGoo, Heal’r and Stocksy for the won­der­ful goodie bags and The Or­ganic Trainer for the speaker gift boxes.

Fi­nally, the day could not have been pos­si­ble with­out each and ev­ery won­der­ful at­tendee. Thanks to our com­mu­nity for your on­go­ing sup­port of the Kick. Start. Smart. event se­ries.
