Speaker 3: Kunal Kalro- Founder & CEO, Eugene Labs

Kunal is the founder & CEO of Eugene Labs, a genetics+health startup empowering people with expert, convenient and compassionate healthcare — anytime, anywhere. This begins with helping people plan a healthy pregnancy.

He's an entrepreneur and product designer that loves to make stuff that is useful, easy to use and nice to look at. He's a bit from all over the place, and has lived and worked in Australia, US, Latin America, Middle East & India. He speaks 4 languages and is also a bit obsessed with Burning Man.

After his last startup, he decided he wanted to make himself a little more useful to, you know, society... and take his skills and apply them to something meaningful. He got into genetics and healthcare to help address some serious systemic biases in the medical industry that continue to cause worse health outcomes for women, people of colour, and well, pretty much most people.

Eugene works to address these inequalities in health outcomes by empowering all of us, as individuals and communities, to make more informed choices about our own health and the role we play in advancing representation in healthcare research.

Speaker 2: Mikey Ellis- Cultural Strategist, Pragmatic Thinking

Mikey is the Culture Strategist at Australia’s leading motivation and behaviour strategy company – Pragmatic Thinking. He’s an industry leader in designing and implementing innovative, values based company culture.

Mikey wants to live in a world where companies engage and empower people to express their unique talents, strengths and creativity as they work together to do great things. He believes companies, regardless of size, have a opportunity to teach and promote self-awareness and empathy and in doing so contribute positively to society beyond the workplace. He doesn’t mind a glass of wine and is a contributing writer to Lonely Planet’s latest Wine Trails guide to Australia and New Zealand.

His career has been diverse with previous roles including; Head of Culture at Vinomofo, family business owner, international expedition leader, Lonely Planet author, primary school teacher, wine writer and educator and personal development coach. Mikey is fascinated by human behaviour, evolutionary psychology and is committed to helping companies identify and bring out the best in their people.

A quick scroll through Instagram would suggest he has a rather unhealthy obsession with Jamon Iberico, Pinot Noir and egg yolks.

Speaker 1: Kate Berry- Founder, OK Motels

There are lots of people that create content but Kate Berry ­actually lives it. She has spent the majority of her life making and collaborating, whether working as creative lead in agencies in Melbourne, Sydney and London, photographing for Frankie, Smith Journal, Spaces and Yen or designing for brands large and small. Kate once even built, ran and sold a successful Melbourne café with her best mate.

She is part doer, part dreamer who gets good shit done.

Having spent many years experimenting in the kitchen, Kate’s love of food, design and photography collided when her family-focused blog,

Lunch Lady, was turned into a magazine. Lunch Lady is now sold worldwide.

Last year, she held the first, sold out, OK Motels event at the Charlton Motel. OK Motels 2 is on Saturday 06 April.

She’s currently writing her first book with Pan Macmillan, due for release September 2019.
