Impact Summit Preliminary Program

Day One – Wednesday 15 March

Settle in and get ready to get curious. 

On Day One you’ll hear from changemakers who have risen to the challenge to pave the way for our industry.  They’ll share their stories of resilience, the importance of planning, and lessons they’ve learned on their personal journeys. Our speakers will share their research and knowledge on industry trends, and the connection between physical health and mental wellness. An action-packed and thought-provoking day.

Zanda McDonald Award Celebration Dinner, Rivershed West, Howard Smith Wharves

Don your glad rags and together let's raise a glass to celebrate the success of our future leaders.

This celebration is located at the stunning Rivershed West in Howard Smith Wharves, on the banks of the Brisbane River. The evening will be a night filled with entertainment and socialising, culminating with the announcement of our two 2023 Award winners – one from New Zealand and one from Australia.


Hosted by Award Chair Richard Rains, with addresses from Award Founder Shane McManaway and Zanda’s sister Senator Susan McDonald, this promised to be a special evening indeed.

Day Two – Thursday 16 March

Get ready to be inspired.

Day Two of our program gets underway with inspiring personal stories from people who are creating positive change, and the challenges they faced in order to succeed.  Take part in the conversation, contribute in workshops, and hear the collective learnings from the next generation and those who’ve been there before. 

Farewell Dinner, Summa House.

Enjoy an informal meal in the relaxed gardens on the Sunset Bar of the Summa House.

It’s an opportunity to chew the fat over a glass of bubbles or a cold ale and a bite to eat before we bid farewell.


Please note, this program is subject to change at any time. A final program will be available by Thursday, March 7th 2023.
