The annual one-day event featured guest speakers who addressed the philosophy that 'leadership is any action that makes the world we touch a better place'. Students listened to:

  • Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett, 2016 Australians of the Year and founders of Orange Sky Laundry (Brisbane)

  • Daniel Flynn, Cofounder Thankyou Group (Melbourne)

  • Barnaby Howath – Former AFL player and stroke survivor
