Masterclass with the sporting professional turned global entrepreneur – James Hird

Tuesday, 24th August at 10:00am AEST

A conversation about mistakes, learning, the waiting place and creating your next chapter

This masterclass has been thoughtfully designed by James Hird and our Founding Director Lisa Stephenson. James has a story full of learning lessons to share. In this interactive masterclass, he will join us to talk through the journey he’s been on. Some of you may know James as the champion Brownlow Medal winning AFL footballer who went on to coach the Essendon Football Club. Some of you may never have heard of him. Regardless, you will find this masterclass inspiring, thought provoking and practical.

James Hird

What happens when the life you planned, ends up not being the one you need to live? So many of us experience our fair share of challenges and unexpected change. James and Lisa will explore the importance of doing the work on yourself that’s required to grow and create a new definition for your personal success. James will share his personal insights on why some people get stuck in the ‘waiting place’ and others go on to thrive. If you’re interested in learning more about the role of mindset when it comes to success, wellbeing and deliberately designing your future, this masterclass is for you.
