"Beyond the Waves"
Beyond the Waves is about our grief journey. Dealing with the turmoil of the moment and looking towards the hope there is to come. Beyond the Waves there are new horizons and many treasures for us to discover.
We are planning to have Funeral Service Training Trust points and Midwifery Council points or the conference. Please return at a later date to view this allocation.
Our Keynote Speakers:
CarlyMarie was a keynote speaker at the 2015 conference but due to illness was not able to give her all - however we were blown away enough to want her back! CarlyMarie's passion for beach art, along with her philosophy on life, loving and living makes her a perfect fit and natural choice as a keynote speaker for our theme "Beyond the Waves".
Sam is the loving husband of CarlyMarie and father of their 4 children. He is drawn to helping others improve their self esteem, wellness and passion for life through his personal training work.
Sam dedicates his life to living fully for his son who never got the chance. He looks forward to sharing his experience from a father's perspective with everyone at the conference.
Dr Lucy Hone is a research associate at AUT’s Human Potential Centre and a co-founder of The 100 Percent Project. A published author and academic researcher, since 2011 she has helped promote wellbeing and resilience among a wide variety of organisations across New Zealand and internationally.
As a keynote speaker Lucy fuses her academic knowledge and personal grief experience with refreshing honesty and a light touch making her presentations both engaging and memorable.
