Taryn Brumfitt, of Body Image Movement, not only had many words of wisdom for more than 200 women at the Illawarra Women In Business Conference Day and Expo at SAGE Hotel on Friday. She singled out two time IWIB speaker Turia Pitt as an incredible woman.

In the middle of her presentation Mr Brumfitt said the fire that severely burned her whole body could have destroyed her for the rest of her life. “But she made a choice and went “no, in spite of that fire I shall continue. And if it is even possible I am going to be a great human being than I was before the fire”.

Ms Brumfitt said Turia was an inspiration to anyone who looked in a mirror and worried about an item of clothing not fitting. “We need to be inspired by this woman. She is incredible”.

Turia Pitt will be back to speak at an IWIB lunch on November 23.

Those at Friday’s lunch were left with 10 points to consider by Taryn Brumfitt.

Stop judging, move you body for pleasure not punishment, don’t be brainwashed because ageing is fabulous, unfollow and follow on social media by being more selective, don’t let the past define your future, engage in sparkle activities, re-label your body, mind your language, make a pact with your mates and join the movement.
