Event description

Description

This November, we’re bringing Women in Focus Real Stories to Melbourne, to share some of the real stories of women in our community.

At Women in Focus, we are continuously inspired by many of our community members who embrace their vulnerability and generously share their unique business experiences, insights and learnings with fellow women in business. That's why we're hosting the Women in Focus Real Stories event series, to celebrate these extraordinary stories and the brave women behind them.

By celebrating one another’s stories, we also learn from them. You’ll hear about finding personal resilience, driving innovation, dealing with setbacks, and following new paths – whatever you might be facing, this collective of women have experienced it first-hand on their journeys and they have a wealth of insights to share. Join us for an inspiring evening to connect with fellow women in business and learn from those who have been there before.

Please note: $10 from every ticket sale will go towards the Women in Focus Giving Community which raises funds for programs that support women.

Canapes and light refreshments will be provided on the night. If you have any questions, or to advise us of any essential dietary requirements, please contact Marlee Redshaw at Marlee.Redshaw@cba.com.au.

Our speakers (listed below) can’t wait to share their stories with you.

Our Real Stories speakers:

Allison Clark

Melissa Foote
CEO/ Managing Director, Total Business Services and Training

It’s never too late to reinvent yourself – and education can be a game-changer. Melissa’s shares how she journeyed from a place of suffering in an abusive relationship to running a thriving business, being happily married and studying her degree in accounting.

Emma Welsh
Cofounder and CEO, Emma & Toms Food

More than a decade ago, Emma said good-bye to junk food. Now on a mission to inspire others, she will reveal the powerful mantra behind how she gave it up, lost her cravings, and overcame her health problems… and eventually started a thriving business that celebrates real nourishment.

Sonya Michele
Director/ Founder, dog&boy

In business, they say follow your passion, and for Sonya Michele, her passion has long been a particular fashion accessory. Discover the poignant personal story behind her brand – and the inspiring way she now views her ‘every day’.
