The PeSA Reach Foundation Dinner is a perfect opportunity for delegates, exhibitors, speakers and sponsors to all mingle in the same room.

Vin Giang

MC & Host

Vinh Giang

2013 South Australian Entrepreneur of the Year, magician and professional speaker Vinh Giang is fascinated with the psychology behind the mysterious art of magic, and has devoted himself to understanding the ways in which people are fooled not only by illusions, but by the tricks that life plays on us, and that we play on ourselves.

Hearing Vinh will open your mind to what is possible, as he takes you on an unforgettable journey through his moving family story, remarkable insights into human psychology and the wonderful art of magic.



2015 Charity Auctioneer

John Shore

Over 25 years John has been performing charity auctions assisting in raising an
estimated $7,000,000 he is a current national ambassador for Canteen Australia,
has been awarded a Patron of the Les Twentyman Fund, last year was awarded with
The Paul Harris Fellow from Rotary whilst not being a Rotarian. People pay a little
more for things when they are having a great time so John's relaxed style brings
the best out of most audiences.

He is known nationally as the auctioneer who sells lots of "NOTHING" and the record
he set last May in Melbourne of $23,900 we believe is a world record for
"NOTHING" who knows what will happen at our dinner. What we do know is it will be FUN.

Sash is working full time as an Engagement Facilitator and Learning and Development Champion in NSW. “I work at Reach because every day is a surprise – you never know what’s coming your way but you’re guaranteed to be either completely challenged or to have an absolute ball!”
