Speakers surround region with inspiration

Grand Slam tennis champion, Paralympian and media personality Dylan Alcott will be in Warrnambool as part of the Great South Coast Speaker Series on October 8, with tickets now on sale.

The inaugural series will see inspirational people from athletes to entrepreneurs share insights and advice gleaned from their extraordinary lives.

Other confirmed speakers include 2018 Victorian of the Year Susan Alberti AC, leading business and retail expert Martin Ginnane, food writer Richard Cornish and Brae owner/chef Dan Hunter.

Martin Ginnane will speak at the Killara Centre in Camperdown on August 6, Richard Cornish and Dan Hunter will both be at Noodledoof Brewing Co in Koroit on September 11 while Susan Alberti AC speak at the Lighthouse Theatre in Warrnambool on November 21.

Warrnambool City Council Manager Economic Development Shaun Miller said that he was delighted to be able to secure all five speakers for the series.

“While the Victorian Government’s Small Business Festival will no longer run, we were very eager to expand on one of the festival’s most popular aspects – high profile guest speakers – so the idea of the Great South Coast Speaker Series was born,” he said.

“While they have taken different journeys and have different areas of expertise, all speakers in the series will offer guidance to help you achieve your goals, whatever they might be.”

The Great South Coast Speaker Series is a partnership between the Warrnambool City, Moyne and Corangamite Shire Councils made possible with funding from Small Business Victoria.
