Keynote Speakers

Jude and Shannon
Jude and Shannon may look familiar, they were contestants on the Amazing Race 2020. Two mums (and bff’s) from Queensland who decided they wanted to challenge themselves, pushing beyond their comfort zones. The Amazing Race experience taught them success is in the journey, it’s not about being first across the line. They made it to the 3rd leg of the race, leaving the show exhilarated and exhausted. Jude and Shannon will share their journey with us and if we are lucky, a few insider stories.
