Join us for our Women in Business Event, with incredible speakers, great music, goodie bags and heaps more. Let’s connect in person!

When women come together amazing things happen. Come and find yourself in a place where the inspiration is only rivalled by the amazing energy and community in the room. We are so excited to announce the first, of what will be our annual, Women in Business Event. Whether you are a business owner, employee, dreamer or just looking to find your tribe – everyone is welcome.

About our keynote – Olivia White

An incredible female entrepreneur, Olivia runs an incredibly successful parenting lifestyle and fashion blog and social media platforms, House of White. She is also a creative, mother of two, speaker and an all-round inspirational woman. Her inquisitive, honest and daring nature has led her to experience and achieve incredible things, from being naked on the cover of a magazine to speaking at Business Chicks, through to interacting with inspiring leaders and representing brands globally. And best of all – she calls our beautiful Baw Baw home. Olivia will share her journey with us, the amazing lessons she has learnt, and most important of all show that success in business can be found in a variety of places, and as a woman – you really can rule the world (and make it a better place, just by being you)!

We also have an exciting panellist of local business women to share their stories, and answer your questions:
