Lachlan Smart will this evening deliver a presentation of his story and the Wings Around the World project at the Skål International Australia 92nd National Assembly on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
Skål is a professional organisation of tourism leaders around the world with an aim of promoting global tourism and friendship. First founded in 1932, the organisation today has approximately 17,000 members in 400 clubs throughout 80 nations.
Taking place at the Queensland Air Museum this evening, the cocktail event will be hosted by Skål International Sunshine Coast, with Smart set to speak with more than 60 attendees during the opening evening of the national assembly.
During his speech Smart will go into detail about the history behind the world record, and the challenges he has already faced throughout his initially planning stages. You can read more about his expectations versus the reality of this project so far HERE.
He will also discuss with the audience when he is likely to make his charge for the title, as well as taking time to outline a few of the locations he is likely to stop at.
Of course, the trip isn’t just about the record and Smart hopes that his message of people achieving their goals irrespective of what barriers may exist will resonate with the attendees, all of whom are people who are no stranger to chasing their goals.
The evening will also be a chance for Smart to involve those in attendance into his project, with community support a key part of his success. While it is a chance for Smart to share his message, it will also be an opportunity to speak to tourism industry leaders and seek guidance as the Wings Around the World project continues to gain momentum.
We will have updates of Smart’s evening throughout the weekend, with a blog due in early next week reporting back on an evening at the Skål International Australia 92nd National Assembly on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
