We all want to live more inspired, meaningful lives.

Saturday 13 June, 2015, the inaugural INSPIRE : FESTIVAL took place at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre featuring headline guest Gretchen Rubin, along with design guru Vince Frost! Hundreds flocked to South Bank to experience this incredible day-long mini festival full of inspiration! Were you one of them?

INSPIRE : FESTIVAL is designed to evoke inspired thought and positive action, whether that be in your own life, or those around you. Led by our powerful speakers, these remarkable stories will make you think, feel, and act. Each session throughout the day is meant to explore themes relevant to all of us. INSPIRE : FESTIVAL’s aim is to surprise, challenge and provoke, but most of all it will inspire.

INSPIRE : FESTIVAL tickets are no longer available as the event has now come and gone, but never fear INSPIRE : FESTIVAL will return in the years ahead. To stay up to date with all the inside information sign up to the E-newsletter here now!

"To remember how you got to this point in time takes more than a moment, to change where you are going to takes less than a moment, to understand where you are right now is to live in the moment, many mistakes are made being unaware of any moment, life is pure, living is amazing. Dave O’Shakes. "
