Vale Peter Burnett AM 1950 – 2019

On Thursday 18th April 2019, our Chairman and good mate Peter Burnett sadly passed away! His wife Jan, son Nick and daughter Emma were at his bedside.

Peter was a natural leader and worked tirelessly and enthusiastically in all of his roles. He led the Australian Hotels Association in Victoria and, nationally, was a director of Visit Victoria, Tourism Australia, a former Geelong Football Club director and was Chairman of the E.J. Whitten Foundation.

We are all deeply saddened by Peter’s passing all to early and offer our condolences to Jan, Nick, Emma and the family.

Peter had a profound ­and positive impact on all who knew him. His leadership of the Foundation led to over $13 million being raised for research and treatment of cancer, the establishment of the E.J. Whitten Foundation Prostate Cancer Research Centre at Epworth and resulted in thousands of Australian men’s lives being saved through research and treatment trials funded by the Foundation as well as the awareness and education programs run in the community that led to early detection of men’s health issues.  

Peter will be an unbelievable loss to the E.J. Whitten Foundation and the community as a whole.

The Foundation will remember him through the work we do promoting men’s health, fundraising for cancer research and treatment and through making our community a better place…just as Peter did.

Vale Peter.

“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.
