I have been reflecting on my first FBA conference which happened to be Hamilton Island some years ago. This conference actually changed my business and my life. I arrived not knowing what to expect and left with lots of answers, lots more questions and some life-long friendships.

It is the annual conference that cements for me the value of my FBA membership. Not only can it help set your business structures and goals for the future, there are those priceless chats with members of your family that just never happen at work or home. These are often triggered by a session that stirs up an issue or idea for your family or business.

One of the great things about Hamilton Island is that you can book a house, this has allowed 8 of us to be travelling and will create a great atmosphere for discussion.

I am really looking forward to welcoming the rest of Australia to Queensland again this year and hope to see you there with as many family members as you are able to muster. Click here for more information on the National Conference and pre-register your interest.
