Yesterday morning we launched Business Chicks on the Gold Coast. It was a beautiful experience for the almost 400-strong crowd who were treated to a divine meal, exceptional networking, a powerful speech from Australian of the Year Ita Buttrose and gifts galore.
Our existing members walked away with a bottle of Skinnygirl cocktails, while our new members were welcomed with Dermalogica gifts – and everyone had the opportunity to win prizes such as Coach handbags, RedBalloon experiences and Pamper Hamper Gifts. Every guest received a copy of Latte magazine, and a gorgeous cupcake too.
We’d been excited about launching Business Chicks on the Gold Coast but never could have imagined just how successful it would be. We were expecting maybe 200 guests for the launch event, but to have sold the event out shows us that we’re on the right path and that there’s never been a more important time to provide a space for women to be themselves, to back themselves more, to play a bigger game, and to support each other in the process.
Apart from it being a knockout event, it was a cathartic experience for me too. This is my eighth year in this business (where’d that go?) and I’m still as energised and passionate about the possibilities as I was when I first started it. It was beautiful to witness the power of Business Chicks through people who were seeing it for the first time.
My secret to falling in love again with your business or job? Find what you do really well. Then find a new way to do more of it.
