Your Hosts and Speakers

Julie Hawkins – Author of Finding Happiness and Freeing Your Spirit, Founder, SMBN Single Mums Business Network, Multi-Award-Winning Entrepreneur and Mindset Millionaire! – Main Stage Speaker – 10am

[18] [15 PG] – [Talk Contains Adult Content]

What is a mindset millionaire? What does it mean to find your power? It is about finding true inner peace, it is understanding how powerful we are to make our own choices, to change our life path, to help others even if we have nothing material, it is the sense of purpose, belonging, pride and self worth. You can be the richest person on paper, and the poorest person in life. Finding your power is about learning when to walk, learning when to stay, believing in yourself, knowing that you have a voice, a very powerful one! and living life to your satisfaction.

Our speakers have something in common; we have challenged and fought against the path laid out in front of us, we have exceeded expectations, and we are happy, and we genuinely want you all to be happy too, in every area of your life! because we know that we are all so much kinder to each other when we are happy! We believe in #sisterhood #womensupportingwomen and #mensmentalhealth – and we do not pretend, nor believe that happiness comes in six figures.

Bridget Daley – Founder, Parents in Biz – Main Stage Speaker – 11am

Resilience & Grit lessons learned through my parenting and business journey

I’m Bridget, the founder of Parents in Biz.and, the editor of the Parents in Business Magazine. I’m a business owner, and mother of 5.

I’m no stranger to wearing multiple hats and being busy at the same time as pursuing my passions and dreams. I’m passionate about empowering parents to design a work style that suits them and their family.

I started my first business over ten years ago, and I understand, first hand, the pains that we, as parents, go through, from starting up a business to scaling a business. There weren’t many parentpreneurs in my social circle back when I started, and my ambition often seemed like a pipe dream.

Throughout my business journey, my children have gone through all the stages of child development baby, toddler, pre-schooler, school age, teenagers, and young adulthood.  

My journey is very much intertwined with why I set up Parents in Biz.

I support parent business owners through their business journey. I empower parents to manage the tightrope of growing a business and having harmony at home.

Susie Mackie: Advocate for Women – photographer, author, broadcaster, founder of Women of Spirit – Guest Speaker, Main Stage – 3pm

Susie’s path was a hard one, but she was fortunate to have support from some amazing women who shared their experiences with her and made her feel less alone. She knows that sharing life experiences can empower others who are struggling with extraordinary personal challenges to survive, and ultimately thrive. We are delighted to have Susie as our guest speaker; she has the wellbeing of every woman at the heart of her work. Here’s what she says:

“It took me until my late 50’s to realise my worth, increase my self-esteem, build strong boundaries and learn to love myself. Now, at 63, I am living proof that it is never too late to know your worth and that self-love brings all sorts of happiness and joy – from within! Life is far too short to live it in a state of low self-esteem and suffer the consequences of this. My life’s purpose has become encouraging and empowering other women to value and love themselves – we all deserve to feel beautiful and worthy.

Our self-image determines how much we love our world and our place in it, and how much we will achieve in life. How do you think and talk about yourself? Is it how you would treat a friend? We create our quality of life based on our self-image: we decide our worth, and we decide how much happiness to expect. Choose to treat yourself with kindness and compassion, and see what a difference it makes to your whole outlook – and if this is a challenge for you, you are in the right place!”
