Next Brisbane speaker
As a medical doctor with a passion for music, Dr James Fielding, the CEO of Audeara, studied business management and biomedical science at the University of Queensland (UQ), working in financial research analysis and public relations in the USA, before starting his medical degree at UQ.James was based at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital before leaving full-time clinical medicine to focus on making the Audeara dream a reality – the world’s first audio-perfecting headphones with a built-in hearing test. As a professional drummer, his love of music stoked his passion for improving the field of audiology, and his role as CEO of Audeara allows him to utilise his unique skill set to its full potential.

November is #CMrestart 🔋 It was chosen by @Cologne_CM, illustrated by Marie Maerz, and is being presented globally by @Adobe. “Restarting is essential. It’s a way to digest experiences, reflect and cultivate self-awareness, and remind ourselves that life is to be enjoyed.”
To be honest… We at CreativeMornings are particularly proud of the space that our speakers create and our attendees allow for REAL FEELS to be shared. The creative industry has enough ego for all of us, so why not be vulnerable one morning a month? This month Sandi Kafrouni of The School of Life Australia asked us questions like “What would you tell your teenage self?” and “What are you too scared to admit to yourself or others?” The Third Quarter hosted this conversation in their beautiful new gallery space while Coffee Supreme AU and Kiss the Berry The Açaí Specialists kept us fed and caffeinated.
Thank you too all who came, drank, ate, listened and shared. Save the date for November 30.

If you ask Sandra Kafrouni what she does for a living, she’ll tell you the honest truth - every day she’s attempting to do the work of the soul, living true to her values and her heart. Sandra is an artist who teaches painting and works at The School of Life, founded in London in 2008 by renowned writer and psychologist Alain de Botton. Since graduating with a Law and Journalism degree from QUT in Brisbane, Sandra has worked as a Solicitor, tutor/guest lecturer, public speaker, and for BBC Children’s TV in Manchester, UK.A few years ago when work began affecting her health, Sandra had to reassess her path, away from the ‘shoulds’ and expectations, and toward healing and truth, where she finds herself today. Our place of gathering this month is The Third Quarter Gallery, Brisbane’s newest contemporary Art space, opened by a CreativeMornings/Brisbane alumni Emily Devers.Register at 11.00am on Monday 15th to attend.
