DONNA Meredith started out as an accountant in Gympie.

Now an international business coach and mentor to entrepreneurs, she wants to change the way Gympie does business.

Ms Meredith will return to her hometown to deliver the Entrepreneur Evolution Workshop this Thursday, hosted by Gympie Women in Business at the Gympie Civic Centre.

Ms Meredith has instructed thousands of entrepreneurs and hundreds of companies from the UK, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand South Africa and Dubai through Live It Up 360, an international education and mentoring company.

The Gympie event is aimed at entrepreneurs, business owners and anyone in a position of leadership.
The core theme of the event is the balancing act between "heart" and wealth creation.

Ms Meredith will aim to inspire "full perspective" in entrepreneurs at the Gympie event, encouraging a strong mindset and strategy development while becoming "the best possible version of themselves".

In a few densely packed hours, she will showcase her system of self-awareness and emotional intelligence.

She said budding entrepreneurs often made the mistake of not conducting their businesses in a "natural state".

"I'll be looking at dynamic personality profiling, showing what is your path of least resistance to wealth creation," she said.

The workshop will push participants to build better strategies and habits to stay competitive in business without sacrificing personal goals.

Women in Business CEO Julie Williams said the event would help take Gympie businesses to the next level.

"I think anybody in business in Gympie should be there," Ms Williams said.

"I know when I started, I didn't have the mentors, I didn't have the connections, the networks of how to do business.

"I wanted to bring the international speakers, the local speakers from all over Australia to Gympie, so we don't have to travel and be away from our families and our business to hear what a global level of best practice in business is."

Ms Williams said around 80 tickets had already been sold for the event, and she was expecting final numbers of around 100 people.

Tickets for the event are $44. Book online or go to Gympie Women in Business on Facebook for more information.

Ticket sales close today. Anyone seeking last-minute tickets after tomorrow can call Julie Williams on 0419 829 641.
