What others say!

I found from running a series of small business seminars in 2011 that other small business owners were thrilled to have the opportunity to gather in the charming environment of a heritage sandstone building and to talk with creative business owners about their experiences.

This is what Philip Shaw of CleverClicks thinks:

The She Inspires small business seminars stand out for a few reasons. They are practical, very relevant, high energy and fun. Not to mention the food - top quality. If you want to meet similar small business owners to yourself and crank your business education up a notch I highly recommend you attend. See you there.

This is what Andrea Mitchell had to say about it all:

"What a great event! Having heard about the event through the flying solo forum I wasn't quite sure what to expect but I was looking forward to speaking with other solo business owners and hoping to get
some inspiration for my own projects. I didn't really know anything about the rocks pop-up project so I was in for a treat. Not only did I get to speak to other entrepreneurs but I was introduced to the amazing creative space created as a result of the project. The official part of the evening let us hear from Belinda about the creation of the space and the process she went through which provided a great balance to being able to wander at random, talking to other attendees and shop owners."
