“On The Rise – a speaker event with new talent” was hosted at The Cowork Collective in Melbourne on Thursday 25 February 2016.
Event sponsor The Cowork Collective occupies a unique space that was an old gold stamping factory and is now available for boutique coworking, workshops and events. It is home to all kinds of creative, adventure loving business owners and was the perfect space for this inaugural event.
Hosted by Felicity Watson the ‘seed’ for “On the Rise” she says was planted over a year ago, during a Beautiful You course lecture with Julie Parker of the Beautiful You Coaching Academy, where she shared ideas for gaining experience as a speaker.
We were met with smiling faces, champagne and canapes – winning! And the line-up on the night saw a number of Beautiful You graduates take the stage, including;
Felicity Watson Event Organiser and MC
Gina Tucker “Purposeful Priorities”
Sammie Fleming “Living with Intention”
Clare Greig “Creative Business Planning”
Ali Clyne “How to avoid burnout”
Aaron Tenabel “Living Beyond the Dream”
Fontaine “Choosing Courage”
Each speaker delivered a powerful and personal presentation to a captive audience that included coaches, other small business owners plus family and friends.
It was so beautiful to see all of the speakers step up on stage with confidence, each with a different story to share. The audience was lucky to be on the receiving end of some amazing moments and life realisations.
We were treated to some lovely touches and extras on the night including Mi Goals notebooks, personalised bookmarks and names cards by the talented artist and typography specialist; Zanin Lawrence-Politis and a crowd favourite…mini magnums at the conclusion – winning again!
The next “On the Rise” event is earmarked for August 2016 again in Melbourne and we can’ wait!
