The countdown is on until Kate Hudson is in Australia exclusively for Business Chicks. We’re kicking off our tour with Kate in Sydney today!
Kate Hudson will be in conversation with our Global CEO and founder, Emma Isaacs. They’ll be covering a range of topics from Kate’s hugely successful Fabletics company, her two best-selling books Pretty Happy and Pretty Fun, as well as movies, family, friendship and Time’s Up, the initiative Kate’s involved in that helps women fight sexual harassment in the workplace.
As well as a delicious lunch, gift bag and hundreds of other Business Chicks to chat to, everyone at the event will also be gifted a copy of Kate’s new book, Pretty Fun, valued at $39.95.
Read on for everything you need to know ahead of our biggest event of the year!
What time should I get there?
Registration starts from 12pm, and the event kicks off at 12:15pm. With an event of this scale, we’d recommend you get there early to avoid any last-minute parking or public transport disasters.
Do I need to print my ticket?
There’s no need to print out your invoice or ‘ticket’ – we’re kind to the environment like that. Just turn up at registration and your name(s) will be on name badges.
How do I find my name badge?
Simply turn up to the International Convention Centre, make your way to the Grand Ballroom (they’ll be plenty of signage), and go directly to the registration desks. Name badges will be arranged by first name initials and the Business Chicks team will be on hand to help you and your guests.
Can I sit with my friends?
If you haven’t yet provided names to our events team or if you have any name changes (or have any other questions!) just email our team at [email protected] or contact (02) 8235 0100.
Can I become a Premium Member on the day?
Absolutely! We often have special gifts for anyone who signs up to become a Premium member at our events. They’ll be membership forms on the tables, and feel free to wave down Business Chicks staff to help answer any questions or find out more information.
I can no longer make it, can I give my ticket to someone else? How?
Woah, sad face! But no problem, email your name change to e[email protected] or contact (02) 8235 0100.
