The way we try to design the Business Chicks conference is ultimately about bringing people together.
It is all about leaving the regular version of yourself at home and experimenting. It’s a business experiment. It’s a social experiment. It’s about being as much of yourself as you can.
It has been so beautiful to see friendships that started forming at our first conference in Uluru, continue on to Byron Bay and solidify in Hamilton Island. And it’s been beautiful to see those friendship circles expand as new faces join the group.
There really is a levelling of people who come from so many different age groups and so many different industries and backgrounds. We really saw that on the dance floor on the last night of this year’s conference – more than 100 women dressed in tropical leis and ABBA costumes, dancing like nobody’s watching.
And to all of you who couldn’t make it this time – see you next year in Fiji?
