KICK. START. SMART. MELBOURNE
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.
