Taryn Brumfitt will share her inspirational message in Murray Bridge
The Embrace filmmaker and speaker has been confirmed as the keynote speaker at the 2022 Murray Bridge Mental Health and Wellbeing Expo.
Her books are bestsellers, she has appeared on TV shows around the world – and next month, Taryn Brumfitt will bring her life-changing message to Murray Bridge.
The inspirational speaker shot to fame in 2013 when she posted two photos of herself online.
In the “before” photo, she wore a bikini in a bodybuilding competition.
The “after” photo showed off her new-mum figure: fuller, yes, but happier.
Since that moment, she has dedicated her life to encouraging everyone – no matter their size, shape, age or gender – to embrace their bodies.
She turned her hand to filmmaking, crowdfunding the body-image documentary Embrace; its sequel, Embrace Kids, was screened in Murray Bridge just last week.
On October 21, the woman herself will deliver her powerful message at the Murray Bridge Mental Health and Wellbeing Expo.
Gabby McKenzie, one of the event organisers, said it was an “absolute coup” that someone with such star power and influence would appear in Murray Bridge.
“Taryn is all about unlocking our full potential by embracing ourselves exactly as we are, right now,” she said.
“It’s a message we all need to hear.”
The expo will also feature a presentation by Hutt Street Centre CEO Chris Burns, creator of the annual Walk a Mile in My Boots fundraising challenge.
Representatives of local mental health and wellbeing organisations including Headspace, Moorundi, AC Care, Relationships Australia and Skylight will be there too, ready to explain how they can help local people.
Entry will be free, and attendees will get a free hot lunch and coffee.
The 2022 Murray Bridge Mental Health and Wellbeing Expo will be held at Murray Bridge Town Hall from 10am-3pm on October 21.
