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.
Our mentoring program connects highly experienced industry leaders with aspiring professionals in a small group environment to allow maximum engagement and learning.
The masterclass workshops provide an opportunity to hear from industry leaders as they reveal the secrets to their success in fundamental areas such as leadership, entrepreneurship and people management.
