Generation Women

Thursday 23 January 2020 from 7pm to 9pm

Generation Women celebrates and amplifies women’s voices and creativity.

Each month, 6 women of note read an original piece on a theme. Of those women, one is in her 20s, her 30s, her 40s, her 50s, her 60s, and her 70s+. Our diverse line-ups will make you laugh, cry, and think. Generation Women is a unique, intimate literary salon that brings together women of all ages.

This January’s theme: New Year, New You: Tales of reinvention and renewal.

It’s a New Year, and so this month we’re asking our superstar performers to tell us a story about reinvention and renewal. We’re all constantly growing and changing, whether we’re Team 20s or Team 90s. Maybe our storytellers will tell us about a new phase of life or a new identity. A haircut or new look or new ‘tude that changed the game. Maybe they’ll dive deep or maybe they’ll just make us laugh. Whatever they choose to share, this January, we’ll be inspiring you with wit and wisdom from women of all ages.

Lunch and Learn: How to Declutter your Finances

Thursday 6 February 2020 from 12pm to 1pm

If you ever say to yourself: “My Money is all over the place” or “I probably should get my finances in order”, then join us for a free Lunch and Learn session where we’ll help show you how to declutter your finances.

We noticed that the people we help are struggling with managing their money. Today, money management is more confusing and complex than ever before and it’s only getting harder. In a world of multiple bank accounts, credit card(s), mortgages, investments and stored documents in a filing cabinet somewhere its no wonder we struggle to keep on top of it all.

What you’ll learn:

  • How the right tools can allow you to view live information across all of your bank accounts, credit cards, mortgages, superannuation, investments & properties all in one platform.
  • Budget Baby! Track transactions across all of your accounts to see a holistic view of your spending habits and set a personalised budget.
  • From there you can set live goals that are linked to your accounts, whether it’s saving for a deposit for a house, putting money away for the kids or reducing debt.
  • You can stop worrying about your money and live the epic life you want.

About your facilitator: Elena Omidzadeh

Elena is a Wealth Portal guru at FinPeak Advisers, and like yourself, has far more interests in life than worrying about her finances. She cares about using money as a tool to do the things in life that are important to her. “It’s simple. Once you know your spending habits, you can structure a budget and plan so you don’t have to hit pause on doing what you love.” But without being aware of what money is coming in and out on the day to day, money will limit your lifestyle.

Everybody Can Be Creative: Tina Seelig

Wednesday 18 March 2020 from 6.30pm to 7.30pm

Creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship are not magical qualities of the lucky few; nor are they inborn traits such as eye and hair colour. Instead they are skills that can be learned and honed.

In her book, Creativity Rules: Get Ideas Out of Your Head and into The World, Stanford University professor and bestselling author Tina Seelig describes a 4-step process she calls “the invention cycle”. From imagination to innovation, Seelig postulates that in learning to unlock this pathway, any one of us can gain the power of creativity.

Tina Seelig is a prolific teacher and mentor. She is a leader at the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, delivers pubic lectures around the world, including some of the most popular TED talks, and hosts a podcast helping young entrepreneurs launch their careers.

Seelig advocates that creativity can be taught just like any other skill and with her proven track record doing just that, this talk will equip you with the tools to transform an idea into something extraordinary.
