Past Speakers

I was privileged to share the story of Cotton On Foundation and my personal journey with The Geelong Young Professionals. The group is an extremely engaging and enthusiastic team of professionals, and it’s brilliant to see that in a city like Geelong we have a net-working group that encourages new thinking, progressive business and that hold a positive, ‘above the line’ attitude towards the progress of our city.
I was really taken by the passion of the group for philanthropy and giving back, they had a true interest and compassion for those who need support in our community and abroad.

— Tim Diamond, Cotton On Foundation

What a great opportunity to stand before a group of young professionals from around the Geelong region and share with them the journey of Offspring. As a grass roots organization I felt honoured to rub shoulders with the likes of Tim Diamond and Karl Waddell who share a similar heart and vision in raising awareness and funds for much needed projects; some in our own back yard and others in areas overseas that are requiring desperate attention. I am always blown away by the community support here in Geelong and am excited to see us continue to grow in our passion and love for others.
