The theme of our Conference was “Destination: Excellence” and we chose Kieren Perkins to speak because of what he had achieved as one of Australia’s greatest sporting heroes. Kieren’s presentation was absorbing & engaging, and he had an excellent ability to draw parallels between success in sport and in business. All of our delegates got to know the man who is Kieren Perkins, not just hear of his achievements. 5 stars!
