As the birthplace of Future of Leadership we absolutely love coming back to Brisbane and this year we've got another outstanding line up of speakers ready to blow your minds and challenge your thinking. We're heading into our 5th year and some of you - well let's be honest, most of you - keep coming back and bringing your mates, colleagues and even family members! We've grown and we will continue to grow and do good as we head back to our favourite auditorium in Brisbane to support the work of Hands Group and Hands Across the Water. 



He is a Queensland favourite - even though he wears blue at Origin games - and we're so pleased Darren is back. Having spoken at every single year of the Future of Leadership, we keep inviting Darren back because the post event surveys consistently rate him in the top handful of speakers; that, and it turns out he is surprisingly easy to bribe with a few nice words and the offer of some banana bread at the morning tea break! He won't be rolling out the same content, as always he brings fresh new insights around building a high performance culture. 


Julie Cross 

Brisbane local Julie Cross AKA Miss Sparkle, joins the card for the first time in 2018 and she’s not all about reciting cliched quotes and retelling ‘same-old, same-old’ stories. Our favourite queen of sparkle believes in the power of authenticity, of telling it how it is, of sharing her own journey and being both brave and vulnerable at the same time. Julie will inspire you to… well… stop caring. Well, at least about what other people think!
