Keynote speakers

On Saturday, all delegates will get the opportunity to hear from inspirational leaders. They will talk about their life, their work, and how they have been a Change Maker!

There will also be opportunities for Q&A with a panel of your afternoon Keynote speakers and a collection of inspirational FedUni student leaders, so get your questions at the ready for an interactive discussion on how to get your ideas for change up and running.

During early 2016, she took part in organising a Girl Guide event, Snoozefest, which involved 600 Girl Guides and Leaders camping the night at Werribee Open Range Zoo. Being involved with Snoozefest taught Lilly a lot about what she is capable of when she steps outside her comfort zone.
