“What an absolute pleasure to work with two incredibly passionate, inspirational and caring women that wake up each morning with the purpose to spread positivity, connection, creativeness and encouragement to other women. Wow! We were honoured to be a part of the very successful Pursue Your Passion event that was held under our giant tipis in Bangalow. More than 200 soul sisters brought together to connect and be inspired to find their path and embrace the journey. Over a year later I still have women that attended this event talk about the incredible atmosphere and motivation they went home with, myself included. Keep on sharing your passion, it does make a difference.”

“Working with Helena and Kristal was a true delight. I was honored to be a part of the first Pursue Your Passion event as the MC. I was truly inspired by not only the line-up of guest speakers the pair had organised, but the location, the setting and the energy that was created in the room (tipi), so much so that I DID pursue my passion post event and created Animals Rock, my new kid entertainment concept.

Thank you for trusting me to guide your event and creating an environment that did truly inspire.”

- Shelley Craft, Television personality


“There is nothing more empowering than hearing of another woman’s success - it is even better when you are face to face with this woman, hearing her story in her own words. The realness of every THP event I have attended has blown me away. You hear it all - the joy, the struggles and you leave feeling refreshed, supported and most importantly, inspired. Kristal and Helena have this magic about them, they bring together the most authentic events and can offer practical advice and encouragement. I know the other women I have met at these events have felt the same and I have made some really beautiful connections with new friends. No matter where you are in your journey you will leave feeling inspired to create and to do it in a really grounded way. “
