Networking for women

BALI bombing survivor Carren Smith will be guest speaker at a women's networking event at Gympie's Kingston House next month.

The Enlightened Goddesses Business Network, which connects women throughout the Sunshine Coast and now Gympie, will host the Gympie Goddesses @ Lunch event from 11.45am on Thursday, May 3.

Running the group are Alicia Aberley of Caloundra, Helen Barber of Cooroy and Natalie McIvor of Coolum.

After enjoying a two-year success on the Sunshine Coast, this progressive women's network is expanding into Gympie and invites all women - those in home-based businesses, those who work for others, those with shop fronts, those at home or studying - to join them for their first Gympie event.

Carren is an author, chief executive of the Quantum Leadership Group and facilitator of The Art of Public Speaking events.

She will share her story of how she moved from Bali bombing survivor to become an inspirational leader.

The cost of $35 for members and $45 for non-members includes a hot or cold drink on arrival, lunch, sweets and lucky door prizes.

Limited seats, bookings essential so those interested in attending should visit enlightenedgoddesses.com.
