- What are young leaders doing differently that is creating lasting change?

Meet the Presenters:
Hanny Allston, Find Your Feet Australia
Hanny Allston is the founding director of Find Your Feet (est. ‘09), an award-winning business specialising in outdoor retail, trail running tourism & performance education. Hanny is also a published author, keynote speaker, performance consultant and hosts a podcast called The Find Your Feet Podcast where she aims to share the voices in our community that need to be heard. In 2015 she was awarded the Tasmanian Telstra Young Businesswoman of the Year and in 2018 Find Your Feet won the Telstra Small & Succeeding Business of the Year.
Hanny’s background is in elite sport. In 2006, Hanny was the first non-European to win a World Orienteering Championships. Further to this, she is a past winner of both the Melbourne & New Zealand Marathon Championships, podium finisher in the World Skyrunning Series and is the current race record holder for multiple road, trail & ultra-running events. However, as a creature of the wild, Hanny’s feet are now at their happiest in a pair of trail shoes… exploring. In January 2017 she completed a traverse of Tasmania’s 95km, 8-day long hike on the South-Coast Track in just 12-hours and a year later an 11-hour return summit of Federation Peak in the remote South West Wilderness.
Hanny Allston is an advisor for recreation, tourism & business management on the National Parks & Wildlife Advisory Council and the youngest ever Councillor for the Australian Institute of Company Directors’ Tasmanian Council. In 2019 she was nominated for the Australian of the Year Awards.
