Adir Shiffman – Executive Chairman – Catapult Sports, Investor – The Australian Financial Review

When Argentina and France squared off in the football World Cup final, they had one secret weapon in common: both were wearing data and analytics technology provided by Melbourne-based Catapult Sports. Catapult is now one of the world’s largest sports technology companies, with revenues exceeding $100 million and growing quickly. More than 3,000 teams in over 100 countries rely on Catapult’s data and analytics software to keep players fit and healthy, maximize performance, drive tactical decision-making, and ultimately win championships.

Whether winning a championship or market share, identifying the right data to capture, and then extracting the most valuable, actionable insights is the key to victory.


Nadine Champion – Keynote Speaker & High-Performance Mindset Coach

Nadine Champion is a fighter, inside the ring and out. As a martial artist with almost 30 years’ experience and an undefeated full contact fighter, Nadine has learnt a lot about inner strength. Not many people have the opportunity to spend twenty years learning about life from a living martial arts Master like Nadine did. In 10 Seconds of Courage, Nadine shares her story and passes on wisdom that helped her find academic and professional success, and even helped her win her fight against cancer.

10 Seconds of Courage is a powerful call to action challenging readers to “change their thinking” in order to succeed. This session will provide inspiration and easy to use practical solutions for facing our fears, big or small.
