This year's event had a very special guest: David Foster, a native of Victoria, one of the most successful music producers in history and the founder of the David Foster Foundation. What a pleasure it was to hear all his incredible stories, and learn about his life experiences. He demonstrated that even with bad grades at school, if you have drive, passion and the right work ethic, you can achieve any goal you set.
