Event description



It’s been a big year. A long year. A huge year! A year full of highs and lows. Ups and downs. Challenges and wins. It’s been the sort of year that has inspired a countdown right to the end. We have made plans and worked them through to completion. We’ve set goals and achieved them. We’ve dreamed dreams and made them come true. Now it is time to let our hair down and go all out to CELEBRATE! With five Meetup groups joining forces, this will be a Christmas party unlike any other.

You will LOVE the night we have planned. Indulge in a delicious menu of canapes! Splurge with a Christmas drink on us! Dance the night away with live music! Be inspired by your Meetup organisers! And, if you’re lucky, you might even enjoy the thrill of winning one of the top shelf door prizes kindly donated by our sponsors.

The 5 Meetup Groups are:

• Lise Saugeres: Living with Mindful Awareness

• Kerry Anne Nelson: Personal Development in Business Melbourne

• Sally Lakshmi Thurley: Enlightenment for Entrepreneurs Melbourne

• Sherryn Bowers: Connecting Women in Leadership Melbourne

• Christine Maikousis: Connecting Women in Business Melbourne

Whether you have joined one of these groups or not, you are more than welcome to celebrate Christmas with us. You will find friendly connections here instantly if you:

• Love networking and making new friends

• Enjoy celebrating wins with fun, like-minded people

Would love to find a new social circle to expand your horizons

• Resonate with passionate, heart-centred people

Are always on the lookout for new ways to grow

Come One! Come All! We are big believers in “The More The Merrier!” Bring your friends, bring your husbands, your wives, your next door neighbours. Invite your workmates and clients. This will be a fabulous night to build friendships and create memories that last a lifetime.

Charity Christmas Tree
One of the things you’ve come to trust from your Meetup organiser is their dedication to generosity. You’re not the only one who has been blown away by the value that you get from these nights. At every event you’ve been spoiled with amazing catering, gorgeous venues, quality networking, mind-blowing speakers, abundant door prizes, and truck loads of fun. This party will be no different. The value will truly be absurd!!! But this Christmas,we’ll raise the bar even higher. We’re going one better ...

When you come on the night you are invited to share more of the love around by donating a gift to our Salvos Christmas tree. We are so grateful for the blessings we enjoy daily through our family and friends and professional wins. This Christmas, we want to give some of that love back by donating special, high quality gifts to our favourite charity, The Salvation Army. Here’s how to join in:

1. Buy one or two high quality gifts to donate
2. Wrap the gifts in pretty Christmas paper
3. Label the gifts with the gender and age of the person they’re most suited to
4. Bring them on the night and pop them under the Salvos Christmas tree

Sherryn Bowers: The Compassionate Leader

Sherryn is passionate about supporting female leaders reconnect with their natural gifts and strengths as a woman so they can increase their level of influence and impact, and feel more fulfilled at work. Her commitment to empowering women to thrive on a sustainable basis comes from having personally experienced a crisis of confidence, following a period of total burnout, despite a highly successful international career. She firmly believes it’s time for women to start fully backing themselves to Speak Up, Stand Out and Make A Difference!

Kerry Anne Nelson: Business Process Genius

On the 28th May 2014 Kerry Anne Nelson arrived home from working in her family business to find her husband had passed away unexpectedly in their home. The very next day Kerry Anne realised that everything boiled down to one question: “Do I let my passion die with him, or do I follow it with everything I have?” Since then Kerry Anne invested everything to restructure and then sell that business to pursue her newfound purpose. These days, Kerry Anne is a business process genius who uses speaking, writing and events to communicate her defining commitment. Kerry Anne Nelson helps professional people to follow their passion. Her years in business management, education, events and team leadership have set Kerry Anne up for wins that seem almost instant in developing business growth systems.
