On Thursday the 12th of April at 9:30am, I attended the ‘Business of Marketing – Women in Business’ event at the Melbourne Polytechnic Conference Centre.
The venue was spacious and comfortable with chairs set in rows for the presentation. The walls were lined with tables sporting white table clothes and platters of canapes and barrels of different coloured juices.
The morning began with a brief networking opportunity. The room was filled exclusively with women, who stood in clusters introducing themselves and politely asking questions about each other’s businesses. At 10am, everyone took their seat for the presentation.
All attendees were female and owned their own business. They were excited to learn about how to set up their own social media channels and work on their digital marketing activities.
I was fortunate enough to hear guest speaker, Emily Osmond, speak about starting her own business, Good Media, and content marketing.
Emily talked about believing in yourself and always giving value to clients before you ask for their business. This resonated with me professionally, as providing the highest value possible to clients is a value at Business Growth Partners. The entire crowd was engaged, and Q and A time was so popular it had to be cut short.
The last half an hour was set aside for another networking opportunity. I would attend the event again.
