At the SKYCITY Theatre, media delegates and hosted buyers were inspired by the MEETINGS Speaker Showcase featuring former All Blacks coach Sir Graham Henry, world number eight free-diver Ant Williams, happy living guru Dr Ed Trimmings and motivational speaker/ disability advocate Cam Calkoen.

While Sir Graham and Dr Ed reflected on their own life experiences to offer a few pearls of wisdom, Ant Williams delighted the ladies in the audience by lifting his shirt in a breathing exercise.

Cam Calkoen also captivated the audience with his story of how, despite living with cerebral palsy, he has achieved great things, including representing New Zealand in athletics and becoming a finalist in the Kiwi Bank Young New Zealander of the Year Awards for 2010.

Magical act Soul Mystique also made an impressive appearance, wowing the audience with their quick costume changes and smooth dance moves.
