Conferences encouraged to seek charity speakers

‘Conference Speakers for a Cause’ will offer groups the opportunity to engage speakers at future events.

Peace of Mind Foundation has launched a program which aims to raise awareness of brain cancer through its ‘Conference Speakers for a Cause’ initiative.

The program will offer associations and corporate groups the opportunity to engage a speaker at a future business event, with Peace of Mind Ambassadors and supporters offering their time in support of the organisation and the brain cancer community.

The speakers will share real stories of courage and leadership with themes around navigating adversity and cultivating resilience.

A number of professionals will also share their expertise across broader themes including sporting success, media and tourism.

Business events expert Karen Bolinger, who has held roles at the Melbourne Convention Bureau and Destination Gold Coast, is the patron of the program.

“Families faced with a brain cancer diagnosis need help navigating the complex road to treatment, financial help and practical assistance and this organisation is the only one of its kind in Australia to provide this help,” Ms Bolinger said.

“Peace of Mind Foundation’s Conference Speakers for a Cause program is a wonderful initiative to enhance your next event or conference program with a compelling and inspiring speaker, while at the same time inviting delegates to give back to a charity doing so much to help those diagnosed with brain cancer.”

Founder and CEO of Peace of Mind Foundation, Rebecca Mallett, said the program will give an opportunity for corporates to make a meaningful contribution in support of the thousands of families facing a dire diagnosis and at the same time enhancing their program with sought after speakers.

“We’re supporting 800 families every year impacted by brain cancer that reach out to Peace of Mind for assistance and our goal is to continue to expand our much-needed programs which are providing hope and quality of life to our patients facing a brain cancer diagnosis,” Ms Mallett said.

“Business events contribute so much to our broader community, not only through their economic contribution but their ability to foster impactful outcomes in research, medical breakthroughs and social impact.

“I also know how incredibly generous delegates are in supporting worthwhile causes and we’re looking forward to engaging with conference hosts to raising awareness.”

Conference hosts are invited to apply for a speaker by contacting Peace of Mind Foundation.
