Sign up for 2018's waitlist.

The purpose of #RadLivin is to inspire you to do what you would love to do now, rather than waiting for some point in the future. It’s a declaration to live an authentic, rad life. Whether that’s saying yes to going on an adventure that day, or to a dream that’s been sitting in your heart, it’s here as a reminder to do what you love, what completely excites you.

Picture it as a fun, inspiring conference, mixed with a rad, laid-back festival.

We’re bringing you down-to-earth, successful speakers who are doing what they love and passionate about inspiring you to do the same. Our speakers are from all walks of life and are as real and relatable as they come. You will hear stripped-back stories about how they went for their dreams and gain applicable knowledge on how you can do what you love too.

After the speakers, there will be live music and space for you to collaborate, meet like-minded people, share your ideas and have an epic time.

After losing one of his mates to melanoma, Jimmy founded Beard Season - a non profit charity and now global movement that invites men to use their beards as conversation starters to raise awareness on skin cancer and encourage young people to regularly check for melanoma. Jimmy is a passionate change-maker and his beard is currently on sale for $1 million, but we’ll get to that at #RadLivin.

Stepping into #RadLivin is like going on an adventure for the day that gives you the tools and inspiration you need in order to say yes to the things you would love to do. 

The day will kick off with talks from our speakers. They will feel like mates who have come together to share with you anything you’d like to know about following your dream. It also wouldn’t be #RadLivin without feeling like you’re at a party. Following the speakers there will be live music that will get you on your feet and give you a chance to further connect and have an epic time.

Rad people coming together to follow their dreams, while encouraging the person next to them do the same.

We know that when you’re doing what you love, it’s much more fun to have like-minded people around you who have your back. Come and meet other inspired individuals who are ready to go against the grain and do what they love.

We’re about forming genuine connections and having an epic time. Throughout the day there will be opportunities to connect, collaborate and celebrate this rad life.



We love the feeling of waking up after an epic day, whether from going on a road trip, attending a music festival or starting a new project. You're able to look back and picturing it so vividly because you knew you were living in the moment. That’s what you’ll get from #RadLivin - an epic day, new connections, rad stories, and the knowledge and inspiration you need to do what you love now.
