When Vanessa Cullen speaks people sit up and listen. She has packed so much into her relatively young life as a successful entrepreneur, a philanthropist, an ultra-endurance athlete who has competed internationally, a mentor to many and an engaging speaker.
Vanessa can speak from experience in so many aspects including, but not limited to, her personal life with the importance of good diet and wise lifestyle choices; her life as an athlete doing ultra trail running in extreme weather conditions; and her broad professional life which includes developing brand strategies.
Vanessa is an ambassador for PKD Australia and devotes much of her efforts to advocating for better outcomes for those 25,000 Australians and 12 million people worldwide who like herself suffer from Polycystic Kidney Disease an inherited genetic kidney disease, which most people have never heard of and for which there are very few treatments and not yet a cure. She has spoken at multiple PKD Australia events and always offered a well researched perspective that the audience can invariably relate to.
