What is Be MPowered?

We couldn’t find a conference that worked for us so we created our own

There simply aren’t enough events that GENUINELY suit business-owning mums.

We need a way to network, connect, upskill and grow that:

  • Happens during school hours (between the mad dash)
  • Helps break the ice with networking introductions (so we can connect with more like-minded souls)
  • Gives you the choice to tune in from home or in-person
  • Sends you the recordings after the event so you can catch up on the content if you miss it!

What will I learn?


Brave Business Dare to Lead™

Anna Ranaldo

Join Anna Ranaldo, a member of Dr Brené Brown’s global Dare to Lead™ facilitation team, as she unpacks how to navigate vulnerability as a pathway to courage, confidence and values alignment.

Together you will explore key insights from Dr Bréne Brown's extensive research and how to be courageous as a business owner via vulnerability (and permission slips!).

Money Is Your Lover

Julia Scott

Be inspired by Julia Scott to identify the gap between where you are now, and the million-dollar version of you. Who does she look like? And what needs to happen for that shift to happen. Because when you can picture her clearly, she can start to emerge.

After Julia's session you will have key tips about money (and how to make it) as well as opening your mind to potential income earning possibilities.

Presented by Hnry

Bringing Life Admin Down to Size

Dinah Rowe-Roberts & Mia Northrop

It was one of the most finessed hybrid conferences I have experienced. I felt connected despite attending virtually - it was a masterclass in how to do it well. I loved contributing a video and learnt valuable tips, ideas and knowledge from the experiences of others.
