This event has probably been and gone!
Being a mother is hard enough, now add business woman to the mix and all hell can break loose. The Mother Yarns – Business Edition has been designed as a day and space for mothers (and even non mothers!) to come together to be inspired, feel united and listen to woman who have achieved overwhelming success in their fields and give advice they wish they were told when starting out as a mother in business.
Taking on panel discussions and think tanks, Rebecca will host business woman from a range of categories’. From working mums, to CEOS, the business edition tackles the questions you really want to ask, and the advice you really need to know. This carefully curated set of woman will light your creative fire, fill you with inspiration and give you real, hard hitting advice to get ahead.
All ticket holders to the event will also receive an E-magazine that will feature interviews with all panelists, inspirational stories from other mothers who have gone back to work or run their own business, recipes, fashion and beauty trend pages - plus much more.
We got you Mama
This panel is designed for the mums holding it down looking after themselves and their families whilst taking on the workforce. Whether it’s running your own business or working a nine – five we have you covered – from putting yourself first with Makaia Carr who will leave you feeling motivated and inspired, feeding your family healthy real food when you’re constantly on the go with Stacey Kemeys qualified nutrition writer from My kids lick the bowl or learning about how to create your version of fulfillment with Amy Woodside new mum and founder of OKreal which she created to provide a resource for a modern community of women who are striving to create their own path.
Do you need help utilizing the world wide web to grow your business? This panel will cover it all, from Jesse Jarvie who has built an empire through hard work, good social media and nailing the email newsletter, Cherie Metcalfe who has rapidly expanded her business Pepper and Me through her social channels has gained a cult following by utilizing a Facebook Group and Libby Jean Hay social media extraordinaire Libby Jean is your girl who knows the ins and outs when it comes to social media and beating that damn algorithm.
It was so important to me that this wasn’t just for the business owners and that we showed support for the mums juggling mum life and getting to work on time. This panel is full of empowering women like Kara Rickard from George FM who would be hosting the breakfast show and pumping to feed her youngest, Gwen Dromgool who is working her dream job for Superette which sees her traveling the country all the while organizing two young boys at home and Jess Claris mum, blogger and theatre Nurse Jess is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to family and shift work.
