The theme for our 16th annual Conference & Awards is ‘Be the Change’

This year’s conference theme is a natural progression from WMB’s 2023 theme when we asked our speakers, attendees, WMB ambassadors and Sheroes, the question – What is your Why? 

On reflection, it was evident that many of us knew exactly our ‘why’ – our ‘raison d’être. However, our careers, which are intrinsically intertwined with our broader lives, are ever-evolving and ever-adjusting – both from within and from outside influences and changing circumstances.

Acknowledging this, knowing that we constantly need to reassess and perhaps adjust course, takes good instincts and courage and even better decision-making skills. This brings us to the theme for 2024 – ‘Be the Change’.

“Progress is impossible without change. Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” George Bernard Shaw

On September 30th, Irish author and behavioural scientist, Nuala Walsh will take to the WMB Stage. In her recently released book, Tune In – How to make smarter decisions in a noisy world, she takes her reader on a journey to become a more influential Decision Ninja.

Nuala writes: “Your decisions matter. Despite popular opinion, the most underestimated risk we face isn’t economic, political or even climate risk – it’s decision risk, and the failure to hear who or what really matters”.  I can’t wait to tune in to Nuala, a former VP at UN Women, who is recognised among the 100 most influential women in finance, with a 30-year global investments career. A TEDx speaker, Nuala serves on multiple high-profile business, sport and non-profit boards and is Founder and CEO of MindEquity.

We will also hear from integrated health and wellness coach, Miriam Hussey as she explores the powerful connection between the mind and body, and how lifestyle choices can be used as medicine. We all want to be the best version of ourselves, and Miriam can help us make the right decisions and ‘Be the Change’.

Miriam is recognised as a leading international keynote speaker in the field of human health, wellness, and performance, and frequently appears in national and international television, radio, and print media. She firmly believes that true health, vitality, and wellness can only be achieved through the integration of cognitive, emotional, physical, nutritional, mental, and spiritual health.

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” Mother Teresa

So whether you wish to make smarter career decisions, better lifestyle decisions, or simply want to leave a positive imprint in your wake, we invite you all to reflect with us at this year’s Conference on our theme ‘Be the Change’.
