We encourage you to pay it forward. Buy 1, give 1. These tickets will be distributed through registered charity and not for profit community organisations who will allocate them to women of colour experiencing hardship.

Community:

We know that one of the most effective things you can do to advance your career, elevate your profile, build your personal brand and to reach success, is to (1) join a community where the desired behaviour, mindset, values, dreams and success is the norm and (2) you already have something in common with this group of awesome individuals. Ultimately, who you consistently surround yourself with determines if you reach your goals and dreams, advance and succeed or not.

As a mentor said once: “When you get a group of people with similar goals together in one place, magic starts to happen. It's like joining CrossFit or a Zumba group - the shared energy starts to infect everyone and we all train harder. We know that 1:1 accountability has it's place, but it's nowhere NEAR as effective as group accountability. Humans are built for social connection, for belonging, to be apart of a tribe. Our human drive to be part of a community is so strong; it's in our DNA.

If you consistently interact with people who have a similar idea of what success looks like, then your natural drive is suddenly aligned with your goals, and brilliance, change and transformation start to appear on an individual and collective level.”

We call this your ‘tribe’.

Want to advance women of colour in leadership and entrepreneurship? Then attend this event and be apart of a tribe.

This event is it.
