Women in Business Expo is organised by a driven team of women who, like yourselves, are all striving to be the best they can professionally and personally! Some of us are juggling children too, but no matter what day-to-day challenges are thrown at us, we are all 100% committed to creating a must-attend event that we are all extremely proud to have worked on.
I left a market leading events company to run a start-up business and launch Women in Business Expo. We spend so much time at work and I wanted to be fulfilled and have the ultimate career progression. If you truly don’t love what you do make that change - when you leave you comfort zone you will grow and reach your full potential.
I have always worked around having a family in a sales role which can be fairly unforgiving to a working mum. I am ambitious and driven and as a result want to understand how to develop professionally, listen to other women’s business journeys and gain tips on how to successfully manage the work-life balance.
I've always had a passion for women in business. The desire to progress in my career alongside being founder of Indigenous Beauty, a natural beauty brand, enables me to continue developing and learning. I love rising to new challenges and feeling inspired on a daily basis as part of my work.
Leaving a company 9 years ago to become a consultant was a daunting prospect, and sometimes still can be. Having to find work, relying on only yourself rather than a team, mastering that work life balance, it took a while to adapt and find a groove. Having also had two children in that time, I keep readjusting my business model so it is flexible enough to fit everyone’s needs. Surrounding myself with talented, like-minded people and trusting my instincts is certainly a good recipe for success.
Although I graduated with a degree in Economics, I'm an avid social media and digital enthusiast! I enjoy working in the events industry and this experience provides me with opportunities to interact with people of different backgrounds and work on some exciting campaigns. Growth is key for me I'm working towards becoming a great digital strategist.
