Meet The Speakers


Vanessa Stoykov

Vanessa founded evolution media group at the age of 26. She is the creator of No More Practice – now one of the largest sources of multi-platform education in the finance industry. She is also the co-creator of award-winning TV show, The Bottom Line.

Vanessa has been featured on the cover of numerous magazines, including Investor Weekly and Women’s Money. With more than 20 years’ experience in the finance sector she is a regular keynote speaker and commentator on the principles of entertaining and inspiring wealth education.

Vanessa’s mission is to positively impact people by increasing their knowledge base and decision making ability around leadership, finance and business principles.


Cassandra Kavanagh

At the age of 24 Cassandra (Cass) co-founded an IT business and then began her Rethink journey at 25 when she started her financial planning business with her husband Dustin.

About 12 months ago Cass lovingly came steam rolling into the position of CEO at Rethink, or as she affectionately refers to her title ‘Little Big Boss’. From there we’ve seen Rethink successfully introduce a legal division, an accounting division and probably one of the best new integrations has been addition of a personal coaching overlay to the ordinarily traditional services of financial planning, law and accounting.

She recently featured in:

  • Hunter Headline Leaders
  • Newcastle Herald Home and Garden
  • Cool People Doing Cool Things

Cass’s mission is to inspire and support change in people’s lives. She often says, ‘I just want people to be able to experience what I experience.’ One of her favourite quotes is ‘as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same’ by Marianne Williamson.
