Wow! Firstly I have to say a huge thank you to the entire Global Sisters team, as well as every single one of their wonderful supporters. What a incredible experience!
Although this is only the 2nd year Global Sisters has run the event, it is already proving to be a magnet for the who’s who of Australia’s business leaders.
So what’s the magic ? Why does this rather humble, new business event quietly attract a literal powerhouse of support ? The answer seemed difficult for people to quite put their finger on or articulate.
I recognised it though. I recognised it because it’s something that is very important to me – it’s beauty. I don’t mean beauty in the cliché, cheesey, superficial way. I mean beauty in that old fashioned expression – beautiful inside and out – way.
Global Sisters captures, supports & nourishes the beauty in the human being behind each of their business start-ups , in a way I have never experienced before. Their unwavering belief in the women behind the start-ups they support, translates into building an extraordinary community of the cream of Australian business leadership around them; creating a potent melting pot of talent, who, together are elevating humanity by building businesses grounded in beauty.
It all sounds too good to be true, I know. The whole experience felt quite surreal.
I CAN’T WAIT to work with the amazing business leaders who have offered such incredible, exciting hands on support ! I’m still pinching myself, to check I’m not dreaming.
