Everyone is welcome at 9 to Thrive Summit, whether you own a small business, have a side project, or happy working 9 to 5. Our highly-curated line-up will inspire you to stretch your thinking, expand your networks and empower you to make those big life changes you’ve been holding back on. Read on to find out why you need to spend Monday with us!
1. Be inspired to take chances, learn from the best and gain the skillset to play a bigger game.
You won’t want to miss any of the incredible speakers and content we’ve got lined up. Co-founder of Australia’s most successful fashion online retailer, Adam Jacobs is covering building great teams, Lisa Wilkinson is sharing the biggest lessons she’s learned throughout her career, our own Emma Isaacs will be talking about how you can ditch the never ready mindset, entrepreneur and investor Gus Balbontin is sharing how we (as individuals and business owners) can keep up with market shifts and the relentless pace of technology, and Kemi Nekvapil will share her practical tips on how we can put ourselves back on top of our to-do lists. And that’s just some of the main stage speakers! Take a look at our packed schedule here.
2. Access to hands-on workshops with Facebook and Instagram experts to give you the tools to propel yourself forward.
At 9 to Thrive Summit, you’ll have access to experts from Facebook, Instagram and Amazon. Join in one of the informative workshop sessions on digital skills or talk to the one of their experts in the Plenary foyer. Based off your feedback from last year’s event, we’ve delved into what you need to accelerate your growth and matched it with companies who can give you best knowledge. You’re welcome!
3. Our world-class speaker line up, including Megan, Gale, Lisa Wilkinson, Ita Buttrose AC OBE, Adam Jacobs and our own Emma Isaacs will (trust us) blow your mind.
Unlike many events aimed at business owners or those seeking more out of life, you won’t be sold to at 9 to Thrive Summit. Our speaker lineup has been carefully curated to give you the best insights without the boring bits. There’s no hidden agendas here, just awesome people willing to share what they know about life, careers and business. Get ready to laugh, be inspired, spark new ideas, and be opened to new ways of thinking.
4. For the first time ever we have guaranteed auditorium seating for our main stage, so no one misses out!
Anyone who’s been to 9 to Thrive before knows seating is hot property at our main stage and workshop sessions. This year we’re shifting our venue to auditorium style seating to accommodate every ticket holder.
5. FREE coffee and breakfast on arrival and refreshments throughout the day.
We’re going disposable cup free at 9 to Thrive Summit, so all you have to do to get FREE unlimited coffee refills is bring your own reusable cup – we’ll have them available to purchase on the day in case you forget to bring your own too!

6. You get to spend the day connecting and building relationships with like-minded and inspiring women.
If you’re thinking about coming but don’t want to do it on your own, don’t be scared. Most people come alone! There’s plenty of opportunities to meet new people, make connections and build relationships. Join our Facebook group here to connect ahead of the event too.
7. Happy hour networking drinks on us to finish the day off with a bang!
We’re picking up the tab, so all you have to do is make your way to the bar after the last session wraps and be ready to mingle. Bring your business cards!
And one more: All-day surprises!
Did you think we were going to reveal everything? Ha, not a chance. Expect the day to be filled with surprises and delights and tons of that Business Chicks magic.
