Cairns Post Radiance Conference
From the Bar Stool to the Board Room
enVizion’s CEO, Julie-ann Lambourne was invited be a speaker at the Cairns Post Radiance Conference 2018 with the theme of ‘Illuminating the Strength Within’; a conference created by women for women.
When I was first approached by Lesley Van Staveren, Founder, FNQ Plastics about this conference and being a speaker, I was like ‘sure, too easy’.Humbled to be asked but I didn’t actually put a lot of thought into it. As time progressed, I listened to Lesley’s vision and input from the other wonderful speakers, I thought, this is not what I expected.Radiance is about personal stories, challenges and more importantly for me about overcoming.
My story is raw; it challenges; it radiates emotions; but more importantly it clearly shows that through all adversities there is lights at the end of all tunnels.
The title ‘From the Bar Stool to the Board Room’ is a true depiction of a life of turmoil through addictions and trauma to a life of working in business and board rooms.
I couldn’t have envisaged what the conference would entail or the outputs it gave.The speakers including Lesley Van Staveren – Unearth your voice and shape your mind, Kristy Vallely – Prime Beliefs and How they impact our lives, Emma Gelling – The 8 year gap, and Jojo Barnes – Wake up to yourself.
A big congratulations to all the speakers and their inspirations and especially a big thank you to Lesley Van Staveren for wanting to create something different and very unique.You truly are an inspiration in wanting to create – The Social Effect.
