Sunday, 19 October 2014 at 11:59 PM - (GMT+10:00) Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney

We’re presented with opportunities throughout our lives. Some we choose to take, others we allow to pass us by and some that call us and there is no choice but to take that road.. There are some people in this world that it seems to come more naturally for, they are driven for their cause, they choose their path and they charge ahead.

What if you could gain some insight into how they do what they do? What drives them forward, what have their key turning points been or things they have learnt that could help you on your own journey.

Where could that lead you?

Join me on October 21st to learn from people who have embraced the breaks – big and small – and have ultimately become leaders in the fields of business, fitness and philanthropy.  

Be inspired, meet new people and support The Hunger Project, a unique charity that works throughout Africa, India and Bangladesh to empower people to lead lives of self-reliance, meet their own basic needs and build better futures for their children.

The Hunger Project

We believe that hunger can end, and that ours is the generation that can end it once and for all. We believe people who live in hunger are not the problem – they are the solution. We don’t see a billion mouths to feed, we see a billion

human beings who are enterprising and resilient. The work, therefore, is to unlock their capacity, creativity and leadership so they can end their own hunger. That’s what we do.

For us in Australia, we think there is more to life than just consuming. We are all connected, and honouring that connection through partnership makes life richer. 

The Hunger Project has a 35-year track record of standing in partnership with people living in abject poverty as they work to end their own chronic hunger. We work in Africa, India and Bangladesh, reaching twenty four million people in nearly 20,000 villages in the most rural places imaginable.
