Hear from an inspirational line-up of female explorers, daredevils and pioneers as they share their captivating stories of escapism and wonder. Each speaker will be limited to just 20 slides to accompany their tales, shown on a big screen, each slide leaving the screen after just 20 seconds. It’s fast. It’s furious. But ultimately, it’s a chance to be swept away to a world filled with adventure, all without leaving your seat.

With this unusual and challenging presentation format, once the talks begin there is no stopping or going back, the audience must be ready to be swept from adventure to adventure!

Although the night will showcase a fierce female-only line-up, everyone is welcome to join us.
