Learning To Soar: Dinner With Lydia Lassila OAM

If you’re a small business operator in one of Victoria’s regional areas, you don’t want to miss the standout Festival Roadshow in August.

This year’s Roadshow features Olympian and entrepreneur Lydia Lassilia OAM, who will give an inspirational keynote over a sumptuous dinner.

Lydia Lassila is an Olympic gold medalist, mother and successful businesswoman who will inspire you with her story of how she turned adversity into advantage.

The aerial skier, who is training for her fifth Winter Olympics next year in South Korea, founded BodyICE in 2006 after suffering a career-threatening injury.

While jumping in the semi-finals of her second Winter Olympics in 2006, Lydia landed badly and ruptured her knee. Frustrated with the inefficiency of the cold therapy products available during rehabilitation, Lydia set her sights on designing and developing a product to fulfil her needs.

BodyICE, a range of icepacks that are easy to travel with, was born. Since having children, Lydia has expanded the range to include remedial maternal and child-friendly cold and heat packs that are sold around the world.

Join Lydia for dinner and learn how having a clear, unwavering vision means you can not only achieve your goals, but take your business to new heights. 

Why regional small business owners must come to the Roadshow:

  • Enjoy dinner with like-minded small business operators
  • Be inspired by an Olympic champion
  • Make valuable contacts and connections in your local region
