    International Women's Day 2024

    Count Her In - Investing in Women, Accelerate Progress

    Join us for a spectacular celebration of International Women's Day 2024! This year's theme "Count Her In - Invest in Women, Accelerate Progress" spotlights the need for greater investment in women's economic empowerment globally.

    Meet Melanie Dale from Let's Get Layered - in case you missed her on Channel 7's Morning Show...

    Embracing the mantra "If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much room," Melanie Dale injects color, energy, and drama into her daily life. Throughout her childhood years in country Victoria, Melanie always found solace in discarded pre-loved items, collecting and transforming them to regularly reinvent herself. Now residing in Melbourne her symphony of modifications reflects her emotions and feelings on any given day.

    Known as Lets Get Layered on social media, her username serves as a double entendre, symbolizing both her unique styling choices and her mental health journey. Through this online artistic outlet, she unpacks the reasons behind her identity, allowing her inner child to flourish.

    This IWD, we encourage you to have fun and DRESS TO EXPRESS yourself! It's time to get that outfit from the back of your closet, because this is the occasion you can wear it.

    Join us as we leave convention behind and celebrate our worth as women deserving of investment and fun on this International Women's Day!

    Enjoy your welcome cocktail on arrival.  Mix and mingle while enjoying canapes.  Then we will take our seats for a delicious two course meal (alternate drop) and enjoy listening to our speaker - and have a little fun along the way.

    Drinks will be available for purchase.

    Kellie Stirling

    Midlife and Menopause are two transitions that often occur at the same time, although they are separate, they are also inextricably linked. Many of us fear this time in life because we have been told stories about all the terrible things that go wrong. What if you learned that it is the most transformational time in our lives as women; and that tending to ourselves and learning to listen to and trust the innate wisdom of our bodies, will support us to move through this time in life with grace and more ease. Midlife is the call to explore you. It is the Autumn season of our life where we have time to slow down, review, reflect and work out what we can let go of, what we can keep and where we need to focus our attention so that we can thrive in our second half of life. Midlife is the perfect time for this complex transition because we have the wisdom and perspective to really differentiate what is going on for us, with our deep life experience, we can begin to work out where we need to focus to thrive in our life.

    If you would like to explore the depth of midlife and menopause and learn how to set yourself up to live well in the second half, come join us.
