It is always an exciting time with you are invited to speak at a conference. Having been fortunate to speak at many varied events over the years, there are times when something outside the box pops up. beyondblue is a sponsor of the Happiness and its Causes Conference in Sydney, being held at Luna Park over June 10 and 11 this year.  The feature speaker of the event will be His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. I was just a tad chuffed when beyondblue invited me to speak at the event in front of over 2000 delegates. Not only do I get to speak on the same day as His Holiness but I also get to take part in a panel discussion with Ruby Wax! It should be a brilliant experience and one I will look forward to telling you more about after the event.
