The programme for the National Convention is virtually complete. Below are details of the speakers confirmed for Friday 24th November.


Donna Hubbard, Be Dynamic Coaching (9.40am)
Donna Hubbard  is a mindset coach and speaker, and created Be Dynamic Coaching & Training in 2011. Soon after becoming a coach, Donna discovered that the thing that stood between her clients and their goals wasn’t a lack of capability, resource or time, but how they viewed themselves.
This realisation sparked her passion for helping people, teams and businesses to create better results by elevating their mindset, in other words moving their outlook from a place of “I/we can’t” to, “I/we can”. Find Donna on Twitter at @BeDynamicLife
