    I hope it’s OK to post this request – if not, admin please remove.

    Business Mums Network is running their (our) thrid annual conference on 20-21 June 2009 in Melbourne and we are looking for presenters.

    You can download the call for presentations from Business Mums Conference (there isn’t a lot of detail there as yet… it’s coming). The closing date for applications is 14 February.

    It would be great to meet some fellow Soloists there & hear what you have to say. We are expecting around 60-70 business mums at the conference. In 2008 we had 60 attend, and in 2007 there were 50.

    Such a shame I can’t be in two places at once ;-) but as you know, I won’t be in the country. I highly recommend the event to anyone else here who is interested.

    Obviously not a mum, so probably not what you’re looking for – but what a fantastic idea!

    That’s a great way to beat the isolation that comes from working on your own …

    Outstanding initiative!

    Edited to add: by the way, are you familiar with Ludwina, the Red Tent Woman? Her networking events attract a lot of mums – and she is one herself. I’m sure she’d be interested in speaking, and her contacts could certainly help fill the place …

    Leela, you don’t have to be a Mum to present and/or come along :) We’ve had presenters in the past who don’t have kids and who are Dads.

    Hi Melissa

    Can you tell me what sort of topics and presenters you’re after? I run a Training Organisation and present for corporate organisations regularly on vairous topics such as Time Management, Project Management and how to use technology. I think your initiative is
    fanastic and I would like to help if I can.

    Look forward to hearing from you

    Hi Melissa
    I am interested in discussing further. My business is named ‘Revive Coaching’ for good reason, so I’m sure I can offer a topic that will fit in very well with your ‘Recharge’ theme.

    Happy to chat re ideas on the phone.

    cheers

    Topics – just about anything to do with business!

    Most of the people attending work from home and have kids primary school age or younger and have been in business 3-5 years or more. Many are at the growth stage, or the “Oh help, I’m running a business & not a hobby” stage! lol

    Last year we had topics on trademarking, decluttering, marketing, business growth stages, privacy, networking, accounts, and stress management.

    I hope this helps :)

    Sounds like a great idea. Business mums sure know how to take on a challenge – in fact two of life’s biggest challenges – kids and business. Interestingly enough also two of life’s biggest joys! (We have a couple of young boys)

    Has it been held in Melbourne every year or do you change the location?

    The last couple have been in Melbourne. Our long term plan is to move them around.

    I also have 2 boys. How old are your boys?

    Hey Melissa!

    What a great opportunity to recharge everybodys’ business – presenters and attendees alike.
    Would love to be involved – am working on a submission as I type.

    Do you still require Presenters for the conference? If so I’d be happy to have a chat. Simone
