Description

Brought to you by The Grace Tales, GRACE TALKS events explore the struggle, the juggle and the joy of motherhood. We’re all about igniting connection, community and conversation.

In honour of International Women’s Day on March 8, The Grace Tales will be hosting their first not-to-be-missed GRACE TALKS event of the year at the spectacularly revamped Woolwich Pier Hotel in Sydney. Overlooking the harbour, we’ll come together for brunch to hear from a group of dynamic and empowering women.

These women are not only inspiring (hear how Aden + Anais founder Raegan Moya-Jones built a $100 million dollar business), but you’re going to walk away with new ideas and tools for how to manage many aspects for the motherhood juggle (did we mention you’ll also walk away with a fantastic goodie bag filled with products created by our GRACE community?). Light brunch and coffee and tea will be served.

10% of proceeds from this event will be donated to our charity partner Every Mother Counts, whose mission is to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere.

Raegan Moya-Jones:
If you’re a mum, chances are you’re more than acquainted with cult baby essentials brand Aden + Anais. Their soft, adorably-printed muslins are often gifted to new mums and re-purchased in bulk thanks to their multitude of uses (swaddling, burping, wrapping, covering… we could go on), and the all-encompassing lifestyle brand has now extended to include bibs, blankets, sleeping bags, towels and more. The founder of the business, Aussie-born and New York-based Raegan Moya-Jones, is a classic example of Aussie grit and self-belief, conceiving the brand from home, in the early hours of the morning while working at her day job and simultaneously raising four young daughters. It seems the gap she identified in the US market for soft and gorgeous baby swaddles was truly her calling, with Aden + Anais now turning over more than $US100 million in revenue each year.

Much like her upcoming book, What It Takes, How I Built a $100 Million Dollar Business Against All Odds, Raegan will cover her journey through motherhood and entrepreneurship and how she blended an award-winning lifestyle brand with the demands of motherhood (four times over!).

Vashti Whitfield:
There were many points that stood out to us in our recent interview with the inimitable Vashti Whitfield, but perhaps the most poignant one blended both birth and death - a fitting symbol of everything she has endured and what she now tries to teach through her career as a global speaker, mindset and resilience expert and documentary filmmaker: “My belief about birth, as it is about death really, is that we are poorly-educated on the two most impactful processes in the life cycle available to us. And that, unfortunately for the vast majority of us, both transformations are anchored in fear of loss, pain and the unknown.” This fear is what Vashti is trying to change through her work in coaching - both on an executive and personal level - combined with her innate and deeply inspiring natural storytelling ability that has seen her create ‘Be Here Now’, a documentary honouring her late husband Andy Whitfield and exploring the notion of life, love and loss with the utmost sincerity and intimacy.

Vashti’s natural-born speaking talents will delve deeper in the world of motherhood, grief, resilience, strength and more, and we can’t wait to hear how she incorporates mindfulness into her everyday juggle with work and kids.

Bronwyn Mccahon, Meg Mason and Kate Pascoe Squires
Our fantastic panel will share their insights into work, motherhood and redefining the everyday expectations women place on themselves. Former Cosmopolitan editor and co-founder of Play etc Bronwyn Mccahon, journalist and author of You Be Mother and Say It Again in a Nice Voice Meg Mason (Vogue described her approach to parenting as "refreshing and hilarious"), and slow living advocate and creative consultant Kate Pascoe Squires will feature in a panel discussion with The Grace Tales founder Georgie Abay, delving deeper into the world of motherhood and career and how they’re navigating both worlds with a strong focus on self-care and flexibility. This is a much-needed conversation, which celebrates #leaningout as much as we support women kicking career goals.
