And there’s no better way to achieve that than by surrounding yourself with, and learning from, the best in our industry.

Join world-class trainers, educators and fitness experts, Todd Durkin, Mike Fitch and Claire Norgate in an inspiring and provocative forum, where you have the opportunity to direct the PT Breakfast Brainstrust experience.

Women of Influence Lunch

Presenters TBC

SATURDAY 19 APRIL / 12 – 2:45pm

The Women of Influence Lunch is fast-becoming one of the most popular FILEX highlights.

Now in its third year, this lavish annual lunch is a celebration, as much as it is an educational opportunity to spend time with some of the country – and the world’s – most accomplished and inspiring female achievers.

Hosted by industry icon, Lisa Champion, this year’s panel features individuals who have carved their own unique path to success. With each one offering an in-depth insight into their enthralling and often fascinating journey, you’ll share in their most valuable lessons and challenges, which have led them to become a true woman of influence today.

This thought-provoking session will reconnect you with your own passion for high-quality leadership, entrepreneurialism, and innovation, and will equip you to overcome potential obstacles in the pursuit of your own dreams.
