  • Led by a team of inspirational young leaders, qualified trainers, life coaches and health professionals, PEP is about sharing stories and connecting with passionate, like-minded people.
  • PEP is about exploring your values and uncovering your passions. It is about taking risks, working in teams, and overcoming barriers.

It was a meeting of so many incredible people with energy and drive that kick-started an inner fire in many of us. There was such openness and potential in everyone, and a creative element to the program that was very special. read more
