9 to Thrive – Melbourne

I went to the 9 to Thrive by Business Chicks conference with one of my closest friends, Abbey, on Friday and Saturday – while we were there, we had this lovely photo taken by Prue Aja – Photographer.

Both days had such a wide variety of speakers and stalls, although I personally preferred the Friday as it had more of a business conference feel…Saturday was much busier and felt like a festival! Zoe Foster-Blake spoke on Saturday, and she drew a crowd bigger than I think anyone could have imagined…she has a beautiful soul and was great to listen to – she’s inspiring by just being herself.

Business-wise, there was a lot of talk about branding from many of the speakers, echoing advice we normally give to our clients, which was wonderful to hear. Hugh came with us on Friday as well (so thankfully it was a bit quieter that way) – it really was a toddler-friendly business conference, he was so loved and had a ball there!
