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.

Pathfinders Breakfasts are held at The Ivy Ballroom in downtown Sydney and designed to inspire you for a successful and significant life. They feature dynamic presentations and interviews with speakers such as the Hon. John Howard, David Koch, Mia Freedman, Mark Bouris, Peter Overton and Mark Scott. Pathfinders includes a sumptuous hot buffet breakfast and the opportunity to network across Sydney’s business community. From creatives right through to finance, all industries are covered and our speakers don’t just share their strategies for success but also their backbeat story; what has made them who they are today and how they approach challenges, leadership, motivation, health, longevity, spirituality and family. 


Daniel Flynn is the Managing Director and Co-Founder of Thankyou Group, a business venture he founded at just 19 years of age. All profits from the sale of Thankyou products are used to provide clean drinking water, health and hygiene projects and short term food aid. Last year alone Thankyou Group donated just on $2,500,000 to charity, an incredible business and social enterprise success story.

BUILDING A LEADING BRAND Daniel and his team implemented an unprecedented social media campaign with almost no budget, which ‘changed the game’ in the overcrowded FMCG space. The campaign gained 15.5 million media impressions in two weeks and resulted in Australia’s two largest retailers deciding to range Thankyou products in a timeframe that was previously unheard of in the grocery industry. Thankyou now has products stocked in over 4,500 outlets across the country including Coles, Woolworths, 7- Eleven Australia, Australia Post, IGA, Foodland, FoodWorks & hundreds of independent cafes & outlets.

GLOBAL RECOGNITION  Daniel was named Victorian Young Achiever of the Year in 2013, Victorian Young Australian of the Year in 2014 and became a recipient in the 2014 Junior Chamber International 10 Young Outstanding People of The World program. As a company, Thankyou won the “Social Innovation Award” in the 2014 Social Enterprise Awards and was named ‘Youth-Led Social Enterprise of the Year’ in the 2013 Social Enterprise Awards. Daniel is passionate about entrepreneurship, leadership and inspiring others to achieve their dreams and do what others might say is impossible.
