Pop Your Business Conference 27-28 October 2023
Here's what you can expect at the conference:
If you've been to one of my events before you'll know that I loooooove a surprise, so I can't give it all away.
Here's what I can tell you about the Pop Your Business Conference...
Sought after speakers and high quality content
These aren't just any speakers... these are people I seriously admire and have handpicked because I KNOW they will provide epic value and the highest quality content possible.
The option to upgrade to a VIP ticket
Can't resist an opportunity to go VIP? Well, this is the VIP of all VIPs! We're giving you a premium gift bag, headshot from Jade at Hipster Mum and SO MUCH MORE!
Delicious food and a glass of bubbly
You'll get morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea on both days of the conference, as well as a grazing platter and glass of bubbly at our evening networking event. Delicious!
An after-hours event for you to mingle
We're giving you an opportunity to mingle with other attendees and some of the speakers at our evening networking event - entry to this event is included in your ticket!
Loads of opportunities for content creation
This is not the kind of event where you're asked to put your phone away... in fact, we love it when you snap photos and video! We even have a cool photo wall and props to get you in the mood.
An interactive experience with our event app
We've ditched the paper programs and embraced the digital age, with our super cool event app, Eventee. You can communicate with us and other attendees and get all the speaker's links through the app!
Breakout sessions so you can tailor your experience
We know that not everyone craves the same conference experience, which is why we're giving you the option to tailor your program with several breakout sessions during our two days together.
Plenty more surprises along the way!
We love surprises over here, so rest assured - the surprises will continue to roll in. We just know you're going to love the Pop Your Business Conference - that's no surprise!
Newsflash... Business doesn't have to be boring, baby!
And of course we're not ALL about fun, but we do love letting our hair down and letting the good times roll!
