Women set to shine on the Coast

A Sunshine Coast organisation hopes to create a brighter future for business women in the region and around the world.

An exciting new local organisation is blazing into action. SHINE Business Women aims to support, help, inspire, nurture and empower women not only in Australia but also around the globe.

SHINE will create opportunities for self-development, education, conversation and connection to enable professionals, small business owners and employees to reach new heights in their career and perform at their absolute best.

Opportunities will be delivered through annual conferences, a membership site offering education, learning tools and shared stories, group retreat experiences and collaboration.

SHINE founder and CEO Zoë Sparks says there has been a gap in this area for some time.

“There are a growing number of professional women in business who have excelled in their careers for some time and are still looking to learn and focus on their growth and self-development, or find inspiration if they want to change path,” she says.

“They want to be inspired, motivated and challenged. They are hungry for stimulation and don’t want to stop progressing.”

Ms Sparks says this is not a networking group with regular face-to-face events or a ‘sign up for a free course’ organisation.

“There are a number of amazing groups and associations who do this well and we wish to collaborate and work with them, not compete,” Ms Sparks says.

“Our conferences will deliver headline speakers whom are not always accessible unless if you are part of a franchise group or large corporation. I am absolutely thrilled with the line-up.”

The inaugural SHINE Business Women conference will be held in June and high-calibre speakers include globally recognised digital communication expert Danielle Di-Masi and creator of #CelebratingWomen and professional company director Dr Kirstin Ferguson.

TV host and motivational speaker Sebastian Terry of the 100 Things movement will also feature on the stellar line-up.

SHINE Business Women is also determined to support other women who are not as fortunate.

“It’s so important to give back and we are excited to announce that Share the Dignity is our appointed charity for 2018/2019,” Ms Sparks says.

“We are donating a portion of our ticket sales but also have a few other initiatives in the pipeline which we know people will love.”

The SHINE Business Women Conference is proudly supported by My Weekly Preview.

The inaugural SHINE Business Women conference will be held at the Novotel Twin Waters Resort on June 1 and 2. To find out more, visit
