Hosted by C3 Church, Pathfinders is designed to gather leaders in business, sport, media, politics and the arts to inspire, encourage and impart knowledge and experience to Sydney’s professional community. Pathfinders’ forum includes inspirational breakfasts, masterclass workshops and mentoring programs.

Held in the heart of Sydney, our famous breakfasts bring together hundreds of professionals from diverse industries and backgrounds to hear from Australia’s preeminent leaders. Past speakers have included The Hon. John Howard, David Koch, Mia Freedman, Mark Bouris, Peter Overton and Mark Scott. With such high calibre speakers, it is one of the hottest tickets in town.

In a society where much of the apprenticeship and community approach to learning has dissipated, we see a great need for mentoring. This is evidenced throughout the business and professional sectors where professional coaching is becoming standard practice.

Knowledge can be gained from lots of sources, but some aspects of learning can only be gained from having an experience person show you the way. Mentoring is having someone a little further down the track than you, share their experiences and demonstrate how to do life.

We have a unique opportunity to build community by linking our more experienced and accomplished marketplace leaders with younger people, eager to down load the wisdom that they need for the next stage of development.

September intake postponed – dates to be advised Q1 2016.


Leadership & Performance

The next Pathfinders Masterclass will be with James Ajaka, previous CEO at the popular Australian beverage company Nudie.

In the last 12 years nudie has gone from blending fruit in a kitchen for family and friends to using over 450 million pieces of fruit per year. James has been there for almost the entire journey.

James was the CEO of nudie from 2009 to July 2015 and according to Aztec data Nudie is now the number 1 chilled juice brand in Australia. James is passionate about great leadership and believes in good people, clever thinking, empowerment and putting in the hard yards.

James has a Bachelor of Business with a double major in marketing and international business from the Australian Catholic University. James also completed an MBA at the Australian Graduate School of Management in 2009.

James is married and is the proud father of two daughters (both below the age of 5yrs).
