LOCAL businesses could win a guest appearance by champion surfer Layne Beachley at their next corporate event just by booking at a Wyndham conference venue.

The seven-time world surfing champion and Wyndham Asia Pacific ambassador is a highly sought-after motivational speaker and successful business woman, who is credited with paving the way for women's surfing around the world.

Her community achievements are just as admirable, with Layne nominated for the Pride of Australia award last month for her tireless work with the Aim for the Stars Foundation, which she founded to encourage young women to reach their goals.

Businesses will have the chance to hear the motivational stories behind Layne's stellar rise to the top of her sport, through Wyndham Hotel Group's exciting new competition worth $10,000.

The winning business will hear motivational stories behind Layne's rise to the top of her sport, and will receive a three-hour appearance as a presenter, lunch guest or even leading a surf lesson for delegates.

Layne's positive attitude and lessons on determination and overcoming challenges are sure to captivate delegates.

To enter, businesses need to book their next corporate event at one of Wyndham's South Pacific conference venues by December 20, to be held by the end of 2014.

Visit www.wyndham AP.com/ winlayne to view terms and conditions, and to enter by explaining in 25 words or less why an appearance by surfing legend Layne Beachley would change your corporate event.
