When life deals us with a challenging hand, we have two choices: to let them define us, or to use them as a springboard for something greater than ourselves.

This inspiring session will see the remarkable Nasir Sobhani, known globally as ‘The Streets' Barber’, who’s made huge social impact with a simple gesture of kindness.

Be doubly inspired by the tireless youth advocate and standout TEDx presenter Jules Allen as well as the remarkable Sam Bloom, who despite the challenges life has dealt her, made headlines globally for her unique friendship with a magpie named Penguin.

Moderated by Australian broadcasting legend, Richard Morecroft, this unforgettable session is certain to move you and leave a lasting impression.

This session is packed with stories that exemplify the power of the human spirit in the face of extraordinary challenges with lessons for us all in both our personal and business lives.

The registration link for the Saxton sessions will be accessible after having completed the registration for AIME.
