POSTPONED TO MAY 13-15, 2022

SALT Conference was originally scheduled for August 20-22, 2021. Unfortunately, the Conference is postponed due to the NSW COVID situation with three of our four speakers based in the greater Sydney area. Thankfully our speakers have graciously indicated their willingness to switch dates so that the conference program and content will remain unchanged. The new dates are 13-15 May 2022. Current registrants have been advised and can move to the new dates or receive a refund.

Being Human


The Event

Join us for this unique event, engage with some of Australia’s prominent thought leaders, chat with friends and make new ones, and enjoy the peaceful surrounds of Mt Tamborine Convention Centre. Christian, seeker or cynic, the conference program is designed for all.

Why "Being Human"?
