At the planning meeting, we were very clear.... we want to connect with people who want to be engaged! This isn't your traditional ladies networking association! We are a group of kick butt women who want to connect with other rockstars.... We want our events to ignite passion and for people to walk away from them with new ideas and hopefully some new friends! We expect everyone to bring their best self but we want to be BIGGER together!

The April meeting was a small and chilled out affair but the feedback was that everyone really just needed some downtime and liked the format.

Our first meeting of 2018 was a small gathering of 8 ladies and was hosted by Diana. Some great conversations were had and connections made! :)
October 5th.... and December 7th 2017
It is crazy to get everyone's schedules to meet up and we finally did in October. Met at Léonie's place and had some new members come along.... great evening of food / drinks and great conversation! I definitely had a great sense of support and renewed energy!! Can't wait to see everyone in December.
Our last meeting of 2017 will be held on Thursday December 7th! Just need to sort a venue and organize things a bit. Looking forward to our final meeting of the year!
2017 So far..... April 6th & June 1st 2017
In April we met at Clare's place, welcomed some new members and had a great time troubleshooting with Heidi. In June our meeting welcomed some more new members and some of our older members talked through their challenges. We are going to take a bit of a break, and reconvene in August!

Concept Testing Workshop - 24th May 2016
We have decided to build the train as we go.... so, we are putting together an inaugural concept testing workshop for 30 women to participate, engage and create what we want! This isn't going to be your usual networking event - we want you to come as you are. We really want people to be committed so we are keeping this small for the meantime. We will let you know when we are ready for the big day!
