We provide a platform for speakers to share their stories and insights relating to the theme, to inspire and empower the audience, and to embark on their own transformative expeditions that ultimately led them to an epiphany. By showcasing diverse narratives, the event aims to foster community spirit, encourage expression and inspire people to pursue their own paths of discovery and growth.

She explores how you can be the master of your financial success by putting you and your story first. In a world where increasingly the robots can do the work better than we can, people no longer care how talented and experienced you are, they yearn to know your authentic passion and why you do what you do.
