  • Keynote Address - Kirsty Milligan

    25 years ago I was Wonder Women at Warner Bros. Movie World. I robbed the bank three times a day as Bonnie from Bonnie & Clyde and sometimes I even Turned Back Time in Main Street as Cher in The Legends show. 
    Today, as a businesswoman, media expert and single mum (to IVF twins at 45yrs old) I feel more like a superwoman than ever. There’s no costume this time, no script, no show techs or directors. I don’t even have the Justice League to fall back on. 
    I teach people how to unlock our brains power around first impressions so that we can build trusted connections with the people who are important to us. We all have the capacity to ‘Influence on Sight’, to ‘Qualify at the Door’ and to remove the ‘no filters’ and welcome more ‘yes’ in our lives. 
    Let’s talk about that.
