The 27-year-old, who became trapped in a horrific grassfire after participating in a 100km ultra-marathon in September 2011, shared her incredible story, inspiring others �not to give up� and �unleash the tiger� in all of us.

Pitt, a former model and mining engineer with Rio Tinto, suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body and has endured more than 200 surgical procedures including reconstructive surgery for her nose.

The young speaker told the audience �only when we have a crack� do we know what we are capable of and encouraged everyone to make the most of life.

The event, emceed by Verity James and organised by Rebecca Cole and Adriana Graubard, included a Willie Creek Pearl door prize.
