A Date with Courage Conference

Home > Melbourne > Community Events | Fundraisers | How To | Personal Development | Questions

What would we do if we weren't afraid? The answer to this age old question will be revealed in A Date With Courage, a conference organised to raise $5,000 for The Hunger Project. This year's conference is a bridge between Eastern wisdom and Western ideas.

Being able to bridge the cultural divide is one of the reasons why this conference holds special meaning for the organising team. 'A Date with Courage' will be held at Cheung's Wing Chun Kung Fu Academy to give the audience the opportunity to immerse themselves in a world of honour, culture and respect. This year's event showcases 4 speakers sharing their personal journeys with the prevalent theme of 'courage'. It will also include a powerful Wing Chun kung fu demonstration.

The speakers at the conference all have bold and powerful stories to share. One aim of the conference is to help guests look at the part courage plays in every day life. A Date With Courage will hopefully remind guests that the power to change the way they live their lives is in their own hands.

The specially curated speakers include:

Andrew Gason – former criminal who now manages youth and community programs
Don Elgin – Australian medal winning Paralympian
William Cheung – Grand Master in the art of Wing Chun kung fu, teacher to Bruce Lee
Carolyn Tate – author of Unstuck in Provence and founder of The Slow School of Business

100% of the proceeds from the event will be directed to The Hunger Project. The Hunger Project's mission is to end hunger and poverty by pioneering sustainable, grassroots and women-centred strategies and advocating for their widespread adoption in countries around the world. The Hunger Project's programmes provide training and services to village partners in Africa, India, Bangladesh and Latin America.

A Date with Courage will be held from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, 15 August 2015 (with registration to commence at 12:30 p.m.). Cheung's Wing Chun Kung Fu Academy is located at 111 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne.

Seats will be secured by the first 70 people who donate $70 (fully tax deductible).
