Join us for an afternoon of talks, interactive workshops and steps to making life incredible.

Speakers include:

Kirsty Salisbury (Event Host):
At the age of twelve, Kirsty Salisbury had emergency surgery due to a sudden brain malformation. Her life was turned upside down as she faced the daily challenges of learning how to walk again and regain the use of her half paralysed body.  Her first hand experience of death, rehabilitation, and life has sparked a passion for resilience, regrets, and our ability to design our future circumstances.  

Josh Roche:
Josh Roche has been a student of movement and mindset his whole life. He's faced transformation and resilience head on time and time again.  Josh has spent time in the Military, then accepted into the French Legion Basic Training, before hearing the call to live as a Monk, and more recently a trainer and coach helping people to reach their most important goals.

Steffi August:
Steffi August emerged from behind the Iron Curtain in 1988, the oppression of the communist enclave of East Berlin, the Soviet occupied sector of the city during the cold war. Her early life was minimalist, structured and controlled. Three times she risked her life trying to escape to the West, but was instead ostracised from friends, put under secret surveillance by the secret police and lost her job.  

Amanda Betts:
After years of abuse from a multitude of people, AMANDA BETTS truly believed that she was ugly and worthless.  She left home at fifteen,  with little more than $20 in her back pocket.  It was a tough realisation that if she wanted a life, let alone a good life, she was going to have to create it!  Amanda since went on to co-found Red11 Models, and more recently establish the Bridge The Gap Project focusing on vulnerable, and incarcerated youth.


I’ve been invited to join the NZ Book Festival alongside Image Concept Book Printers to showcase my book and promotional products. Woohoo!
So if you love books, The NZ Book Festival is one of the top free Auckland events not to be missed!

You can meet New Zealand authors, discover new books to read or buy for yourself or for someone else as a Christmas gift. With free goody bags, heaps of parking and stacks of books, this is an event not to be missed.
