CONFERENCE TOPIC 

Help your Kids Manage Their Time

When you can’t see the parenting forest for the trees, because your head is on the tree trunk and you’re up to your butt in little crocodiles, it is hard to realise that you are the key to the climate within your family. Your mood, mindset and attention set the tone for the entire family! Join Shelley Wild as she unpacks some cool brain science on why parents are “the” most important investment in the history of our nation. Walk away with practical tips and tricks on what you can do, the very next day, to feel like you have it all together – even when it is hard.

CONFERENCE TOPIC 

The Future of Technology for Kids 

I'm looking forward to speaking at the PakMag Conference about all things tech for kids... in their education, future jobs and everyday lives children will be exposed to a growing amount of technology. They will need to learn about and use gadgets and systems that haven't even been built yet. Technology is a growing part of our lives, instead of worrying about it, lets embrace it and get curious, lets make sure we are ready for the high-tech wave coming at us.

CONFERENCE TOPIC 

Your Child's Behaviour Starts with You.

Andrew Griffiths Enterprises

BIO
Andrew is Australia’s no.1 Small Business Author and global presenter. Andrew now has 12 bestselling titles which are sold in over 60 countries.

As a keynote presenter, Andrew’s authenticity is one of his greatest assets. He has the rare ability to hold a mirror up to people and show them the metaphoric parsley stuck in their teeth, with unapologetic honesty and a quick wit.

 

CONFERENCE TOPIC 

Raising Good Boys to Become Incredible Men

Unlike most men, Andrew grew up without any positive male role models in his life. Starting out as an orphan and living a childhood filled with neglect and abuse, he had to forge his own way in the world from a very young age. But somehow, along the way, he learned exactly how to act as man and how to treat women with absolute respect.

In this presentation Andrew shares some of his own very personal experiences, but also his own realisations about what it takes to take good boys and help them to become incredible men. And of course the moral to the story is that boys will learn how to treat women and to act like the men they need to be, from the most influential male role models in their life. As men, we need to be acutely aware of everything we do, everything we say and every action we take.
