SPEAKERS

Andrew Denton
Media personality

Andrew Denton is one of Australasia’s entertainment industry’s most innovative talents and the man behind a slew of TV hits including Enough Rope and The Gruen Transfer.

From his groundbreaking early work on the ABC - Blah blah blah, The Money or the Gun and Live and Sweaty through to his recent work for The Logies; his role as Executive Producer for The Chaser, CNNNN, The Gruen Transfer and most notably as host of Enough Rope.

When asked about the best skill an interviewer can bring to the job, he said: "Research, clearly. Listening, obviously. And leaving myself open to the possibility it won't go the way I expect."

After six years of edge-of-the-seat television, multiple awards and a reinvention of the meaning of a talk-show, Andrew will bring his incredible wit and personality to the Connect Conference stage on the Gold Coast this August.

Don Meij
Chief Enthusiasm
Officer

From pizza delivery driver to pizza store entrepreneur, to Group CEO and Managing Director of Australia’s largest and first publicly-listed pizza chain - Domino's. Don Meij has proven passion, dedication and a keen business sense mean everything when it comes to climbing the corporate ladder.

After starting as a pizza delivery driver in 1987 in Redcliffe, Queensland, for Silvio’s Dial-a-Pizza while studying to be a high school teacher, Don fell in love with the business and has since slowly worked his way up the ranks.

"Our determination to be the market leader for digital innovation has already seen us achieve almost 60% of sales online and, over the next three years, we want to grow this to 80 percent delivering,” Don said.

Preferring the title Chief Enthusiasm Officer, Don brings to life the wise words “expect more than others think possible.” And what does pizza have to do with our real estate and finance? Like our Group, Don has applied big data principles, new technologies and new engagement techniques to build one of Australia's most successful businesses.

Catch him on stage at Connect conference 2015.

Adam Gilchrist
Cricket Legend

Considered one of the greatest wicketkeepers and batsman Australia has ever produced, his name is mentioned in the company of the sport’s greats.

Adam Gilchrist is the only wicketkeeper in Australia to have captained the Australian Test and One Day teams and holds the record for the most sixes hit in Test cricket (97).

In 2004, Adam was hand picked by the late Richie Benaud for his All Time Greatest Team, joining the ranks of Donald Bradman, Dennis Lillee and Shane Warne.

Outside of cricket, Gilchrist enjoys an illustrious media and business career and is ambassador for World Vision and has been the chair of the National Australia Day Council since 2008.

An entertaining and inspiring speaker Adam will share a fascinating insight into the world of professional cricket, working together as a team, setting goals and the culture of great leadership, all peppered with anecdotes from his career.

John Maclean
Motivational speaker

Transformation is about choice, change and adaptability. John Maclean embodies transformation.

During fitness training near his hometown in June 1988, John was hit by an 8 tonne truck as he rode his bike. The impact resulted in John suffering multiple breaks to his pelvis and back, a fractured sternum, punctured lungs, a broken arm, and left John a paraplegic.

It took astonishing courage and determination, but somehow this near-fatal accident was the making of him. John chose never to be defined by his wheelchair. He adapted to life in a wheelchair by pushing extraordinary boundaries in sporting achievement as a wheelchair athlete. He consciously challenged and changed his belief system.

In 2014 John embarked on his most extraordinary transformation to date, leaving the wheels behind and completing The Nepean Triathlon as a conventional athlete. Today, he is Australia's most sought after motivational speakers and in August he joins Connect.
