Women of the workforce, here’s your chance to network with Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs, taste-makers, writers and media personalities. And, while you’re at it, you can indulge in a turf-side champagne, a blow-dry, a croquet match or a T2 session. This is all happening thanks to 9 to Thrive: the first-ever Business Chicks experience, taking place at Australian Technology Park on Friday and Saturday October 23–24.
Over two days, more than sixty exhibitors will showcase their wares across the food, beverage, health, wellness, fashion, lifestyle, beauty and business sectors. Meanwhile, an action-packed program of keynote speeches, panel discussions and workshops will feature the likes of glamorous fashion blogger Nadia Bartel, interior design pro Shaynna Blaze, fitness legend Michelle Bridges, I Quit Sugar author Sarah Wilson, bestselling author Zoe Foster-Blake, TV presenter Jules Sebastian, Business Chicks CEO Emma Isaacs, nutrition expert Dr Libby Weaver and many others.
But it’s not all about listening and talking. In between chats, hang out in the King Living Lounge, check out Royal Randwick’s champagne-fuelled 'mini-races' experience or grab a tea. Alternatively, if you feel like freshening up, book yourself a touch-up with Benefit Cosmetics or a face-map with Dermalogica. Or get active at Chambord’s flamingo croquet bar, Body Pass’s pilates classes and Virgin Active’s shape-up sessions.
