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.
SPEAKERS + LIVE MUSIC
LAUREN & ALEX
Founders of Will & Bear
After life on the road, Lauren & Alex wanted a way to give back to their playground. Will & Bear, a unisex hat brand designed for adventure, plants 10 trees for every hat purchased. They’ll teach you about the power of collaboration, running a startup, and how building a community around your idea leads to success.
Founder of OceanZen Bikini
Steph’s mission is to save our ocean one bikini at a time. After leaving her 9 to 5, she combined her passions for conservation and sustainability to launch Ocean Zen, a bikini line made from recycled plastic bottles and fishing nets. She’ll share the story of how she got started and teach you the mindset required for breaking out of the norm to pursue your dreams.
THE NEVERLAND BOYS CO
Founders, World Travelers
Three best mates Jaxon, Elliott and Zac travel around the world documenting their eternal youth. They live in a world where every day is an adventure and leaping into the unknown is the new norm. They’ll share with you how they travel for a living, overcome the ups and downs of life on the road, and make the journey as important, if not more, than the destination.
Founders of Down The Rabbit Hole
At a crossroads between starting a business or living a life of adventure, Elise & Dominec combined their unique visions to create a winery, Down The Rabbit Hole. You’ll walk away from their talk with clarity on how to combine passions in multiple areas of your life to create something that is uniquely you.
Stefan Haworth transforms the idea that photography needs to be an individual pursuit and believes that collaboration is at the core of strong story telling. He’ll be joining Will & Bear to speak about their work together, creating through authenticity, and leaping before you’re ready.
The Byron Bay based singer-songwriter Adam Harpaz paints pictures of peaceful coastal living through heartfelt performances and lyrical integrity. He'll get you on your feet and grooving into the night.
Hollie's tracks are layered with honeyed tones and universal sentiments that’ll have you hanging on every word - deeming her the dawning love child of Vance Joy and The Lumineers that this world deserves.

ELISE & DOMENIC
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 dreams. It also wouldn’t be #RadLivin without feeling like you’re at a party.
Following the speakers at around 3pm 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.
HOW THE DAY WORKS
WHO WILL BE THERE
Rad people from around the world coming together to follow their dreams, while encouraging the person next to them do the same.

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.
