"I've been a bit of a Goldilocks trying to find a networking group that's just right. Some are very corporate with a harsh energy and competitiveness that makes me uncomfortable, and then other groups are mystical/spiritual but seem more hobbyists. Your events are a beautiful blend of warmth, connection and support." 

- Fiona Craig, Life Balance Coach

Our expert panel are eager to share their wealth of knowledge with you and answer all of your hairy and scary questions.

Meet our Panel...

Ahhhh, business ownership. 

What with products and services to refine, marketing plans to create, funnels to build, sales to make and social media to maintain, who's got time for anything else? No wonder it's not a path for the faint hearted. 

But how often do you stop and consider the foundations of your business - you know the essential bits and pieces that have the power to either make or break what you are trying to create? 

Join us this October for our special Business Essentials Masterclass where we sit down with our expert panel and unpack the critical elements that usually get relegated to the too hard basket - the legal, the financial and the overall focus of daily activities. We will be covering how to best protect yourself in business and how to ensure that your daily actions align with your overall goals.  

Our experts will be covering topics such as:


Rebecca is a portfolio entrepreneur and is currently the CEO and founder of The Grow Project, and director and co-founder of Newmark Group.

She has two businesses, two babies (with a third on the way), and only works 100 days each year. 

She challenges the prospect of not being able to have it all, on the premise that ‘all’ simply requires the act of honestly and consciously defining what all actually is, putting in place an action plan with accountability, and creating your all. 

She is valued by her colleagues as a natural coach, thrives on seeing others performing at their peak, and is brilliant at facilitating discussions; asking the pertinent questions and working together to the connect the dots and create ‘ah ha’ light bulb moments in a lovingly smart way.

The Mothers Den Brunch Sessions are a monthly event that brings together the growing pride of bright, talented mums building meaningful businesses on their own terms. 

We know how isolating life can be when you juggle running a business with family. Not to mention how hard it can be to find focus and motivation when life is already hectic enough. 

We are about providing you with a special space where you feel supported and inspired - all while giving you access to some of the greatest business minds to help you take your own business further. 

Our Brunches also give you the opportunity to meet other amazing women, just like you, who walk the same path and understand your struggles.

Each Brunch includes a keynote speaker who will be sharing their knowledge for greater success, both in business and as a whole, with plenty of opportunity to mingle and meet other mums who walk a similar path. 

We are passionate about bringing great content to our community and making our Brunches as accessible as possible. For this reason, we hold our Brunches after school drop off and offer childcare on site.

I've never been before and I'm really apprehensive. What can I expect?

It's so normal to be hesitant about joining a group for the first time. All we can say is that our Brunches are unlike anything else you've ever been to. Our community is welcoming, loves smart conversation and believes in the power of women supporting women. Numbers are usually capped at around 60 to make sure that you have the opportunity to make some amazing connections and not be lost in a sea of faces.

Are the Brunch Sessions catered?

Yes, all of our events are fully catered. For our Brunch Sessions, we've teamed up with some of the best cafes and venues around Sydney to make sure that your morning is as relaxing and insightful as possible. While each venue is slightly different, you can expect to be treated to something a little bit sweet, something a little bit savoury, plus fruit, tea and coffee. 

What if I have special dietary requirements?

Just let us know when booking your ticket and we'll coordinate with the venue.

Can I bring my child(ren)?

Yes! We have partnered with Upswing to provide a limited number of childcare spots. 

Young babies who will happily sit in your lap do not need a ticket. 

What if I buy a ticket and can't make it?

We know how unpredictable life with kids can be. As long as you let us know prior to five days before the event, we are more than happy to refund your ticket.
