“The Dad Conference”
THE E.J. WHITTEN FOUNDATION PROUDLY SUPPORTS “THE DAD CONFERENCE”.
WHAT’S THE DAD CONFERENCE ALL ABOUT
Dads are awesome. They have the power to dramatically influence those closest to them. Whether it’s their wife or partner, children, other family members or even work colleagues, dads have a way about them that can inspire and motivate people to move and grow.
At ‘The Dad Conference’ we believe that when you mix a room full of dads with highly qualified experts who are willing to share their knowledge in a supportive and open environment, dads and their loved ones can experience incredible and positive change in their lives.
HOW WILL THIS HAPPEN?
On February 25, ‘The Dad Conference’ will be held at Deakin University in Burwood. Six amazing speakers will share their knowledge and understanding of topics that directly affect dads on a daily basis. The dads in the room will be encouraged to take notes, and identify strategies and tips they can plug into their own lives to make positive change a reality for themselves and their loved ones.
Plus, 10% of all profits will be donated to the E.J Whitten Foundation to help with prostate cancer research and awareness, and other men’s health initiatives. Not only will the dads who attend get so much out of the event personally, but they will be actively supporting a charity relative to them.
WHAT DOES ‘THE DAD CONFERENCE’ LOOK LIKE?
The day will kick-off at 10am, and the following six speakers will give 45-minute talks about their topic of expertise:
- Dr Michael Carr-Gregg is the founder of CanTeen, and one of Australia’s most respected psychologists, specialising in parenting, children and adolescents. He will talk about parenting teenage boys in his presentation called ‘The Prince Boofhead Syndrome’.
- Craig Harper is one of Australia’s leading presenters in the areas of health, high-performance and personal transformation. He will share his thoughts on how to create a high-performing life.
- Chris Helder shares his thoughts on belief systems and how they can help you achieve your goals. Chris believes that ‘positive thinking’ is a waste of time, and ‘useful thinking’ is a much better way achieve your goals.
- Danny ‘Spud’ Frawley, former star St Kilda fullback and Richmond Head Coach, shares his intimate story about battling depression, anxiety and overcoming a nervous breakdown.
- Jason Cunningham is a business growth and personal finance expert and speaker, and the resident financial guru on Channel Seven’s ‘Living Room’ program. He will show you ‘how to get financially fit.’
- Mark Bunn, former Hawthorn footballer, is one of Australasia’s leading experts on health and personal performance. He’ll share with you the daily habits of healthy high-achieving people.
The knowledge and information dads will take away from these speakers at this event will have an amazing impact on their lives.

EJ Whitten Foundation in the Community
The E.J. Whitten Foundation through its community program “It’s Time To Test” is encouraging everyone to get fit and stay healthy this summer.
The “It’s Time To Test” community program has reached over 144,000 people and is leading the way for better health and a better lifestyle for many men and their families.
We have visited over 500 grass roots clubs, carried out 540 men’s health tests and spent over 113 hours in the community talking to people to ensure they take charge of their health.
The result is that small changes are leading to a healthier and happier life. In some instances, lives are actually being saved through early diagnoses of men’s health issues.
Use the summer-time to take charge of your health.
Get a group of mates together, start a summer fitness campaign and visit your GP for a health check-up and plan.
It’s Time To Test.
E.J. Whitten Foundation Promotes Men’s Health
The month of September was Prostate Health Awareness Month and it was a very busy start to Spring for the EJ Whitten Foundation.
We kicked off the AFL’s September Celebration of Footy Finals with the Chemist Warehouse E.J. Whitten Legends Game on 1 September. The game was once again a highly engaging and entertaining spectacle. Captain of the Victorian team, Jonathan Brown, kicked the winning goal after the siren by threading a drop punt through the middle of the “sticks” despite being at an “impossible” 180 degree angle.
See the goal after the siren here: http://bit.ly/2ysZ2G0
Grand Final Week was another big week in September for the Foundation. Matty Mayne chopped off his beloved Mullet that he had been grooming for over 3 years to raise awareness and over $10,000 in funds for Men’s Health.
The E.J. Whitten TAB Grand Final Lunch was another great day with 4x Premiership player Jarryd Roughead picking the Tigers for the win. His fellow premiership panelists Jimmy Bartel, and Brent Harvey weren’t so confident, and of course AFLW Adelaide Crows premiership player Abbey Holmes tipped the Crows men to match the success AFLW Crows team earlier in the year.
The busy period concluded with the AFL Masters in Geelong where the “Time to Test” campaign was promoted to the 803 male participants in the carnival. The Townsville Sharks got right behind the cause raising funds and awareness in FNQ and during the Masters Carnival.
We now enter Spring Racing Carnival before embarking on a summer of Ashes Cricket, Australian Open Tennis, A-League Soccer, Big Bash T20, Nitro Athletics and other exciting summer sports.
The message as always from the E.J. Whitten Foundation is look after your health as we want you to have a happy and healthy spring and summer with your families.
Check out some of the photos from our busy month of events in September.
Roughead, Harvey, Bartel support Grand Final Lunch
Celebrate September with the E.J. Whitten Foundation
AFL stars Jarrod Roughead, Brent Harvey, Jimmy Bartel and AFLW and Channel 7 Commentator Abbey Holmes are all premiership winning players who will provide the attendees of the lunch with a tremendous insight into what it is like for a player in the build up to a Grand Final. To add to this talent, we will also be joined by the hilarious Sam Kekovich, part of the famous Ron Barrassi coached 1975 North Melbourne Premiership team, and key note speaker George McNeil who was banned from running in the Olympics while he held the title of the “fastest man in the world!”

All Stars Coach Wayne Carey looking for every inch of advantage in the E.J. Whitten Legends Game
All Stars Coach Wayne Carey has turned to Hollywood for inspiration ahead of his coaching role in the E.J. Whitten Legends Game.
Carey, a dual Premiership Captain and 7 time All-Australian has been warned by All Star Captain Luke Darcy to “dial-back” the intensity ahead of this Friday’s game at Etihad Stadium. But Carey’s ‘Shinboner’ Spirit has taken over, and he has been drawing on the performance of Hollywood legend Al Pacino in “Any Given Sunday” to assist him in delivering his motivational orations to his All Stars team.
North Melbourne has produced a long line of motivational coaches including Barrassi, Kennedy, Blight and Pagan.
