Have you had your kairos moment yet?

Or are you going through the motions of life, but actually asleep?

Until Sam was in a head-on collision with a semi-trailer and life as he knew it was catapulted into a new dimension, Sam didn’t realize he—and so many of us—are simply going through the motions of life but not actually awake.

Listening to Sam’s stories will make you laugh, cry and question everything you know to be true in your life. And sing. This heartfelt and humorous A-fest presentation from Sam Cawthorn (2009 Young Australian of the Year, international best-selling self-help author, entrepreneur, and motivational speaker) will truly move you to the core. Don’t miss hearing Sam’s enthralling tales and learn how you can awaken to the life you’re destined for before it’s too late.
