Their line-up of speakers come from all walks of life and take to our stage to share their stories, wisdom and ideas with honesty & humour.

The Winter Series begins on 28 June, 2019 with Melissa Doyle discussing “The Stories That Changed Me.” All events will take place on Friday evenings, and will encourage audiences to explore and experience Kiama in conjunction with the event.

I3 is audience focused, and each event will include ample, integrated Q&A and opportunity for book signing and meet & greet following the on-stage conversation.
