In August 2018, the NAB/MLC group held a conference at the Sheraton Mirage on the Gold Coast. The conference is attended by around 300 small-to-medium financial planning business owners who are authorised to provide advice by the NAB/MLC Group.

Mindstar CEO, Aaron Williams was asked to present a keynote as well as a workshop. The keynote delivered fantastic feedback and was an incredibly impactful 90 minutes. Aaron brought to the audience Samuel Johnson and Gus Worland, who along with Aaron, were able to get to the heart of the issue for the largely male audience, while still engaging with the women in the room as well.

Aaron’s messages about the power you have over your thoughts, as well as how you can train your mind as well as your body really hit a chord with the audience.

I would thoroughly recommend engaging Aaron to speak with anyone who is in the business of dealingwith human beings and understanding what makes them tick a bit better and how you might helpsomeone really in need.
