Comments Off on Reese’s Australia/NZ Simpatico Conference cancelled
Unfortunately the Simpatico Conference Reese was scheduled to attend next month in Australia and New Zealand has been cancelled. It is unclear why, with the events organiser Jacqueline Nagle telling the press that she is unable to comment due to confidentiality agreements and Sydney promoter Max Markson also unable to explain due to being “bound by contractual obligations”.

We wish to bring attendees the best experience possible, and unfortunately due to issues within our organization we are unable to move forward with our event at this time. The Simpatico Connection organizers wish to convey our sincerest apologies to the proposed keynote speaker Reese Witherspoon, along with speakers Naomi Simson, Elize Hattin, Lisa Lockland-Bell, Vicki Webster, and Alice Haemmerle and those who wished to attend the conference.
