Business Sessions at FILEX
Within FILEX’s overall theme ‘Igniting Passion’, there will be more than 40 business presentations including additional sessions from Bill McBride, Dr Paul Bedford and Luke Carlson as well as presentations from a range of top industry professionals.
These include sales professionals Amanda Bracks and Steve Jensen, David Norman of Synergy Fitness/Eye Fitness, Andrews Simmons of Vision Personal Training, ‘Mr Retention’ Paul Brown of Face2Face fitness and Xen Angelides of Precor Australia.
