Girl Boss Chat Series – Christchurch

Business Buildhers presents the “Girl Boss Chat Series”

Come hang out with 4 rad girl bosses for an evening of inspiration and motivation, and get a chance to mix and mingle with like-minded women over drinks and light nibbles (Yes, there is wine and delicious morsels provided by Jenna of the Simple Food Co included in your ticket price.)

Hosted by Kylie Richardson, a Life Coach for Entrepreneurial Women and founder of Business Buildhers, the event has been created to showcase some of the many talented women in business, living here in New Zealand. These women each have a different story, have been on their own unique journey, are creating a business that aligns with them and will inspire you to do the same. 

And the cool thing is, they aren’t that different to you or I. They are regular gals who are doing their thing and that’s why we love them.

We know that you will too.

✨ So who is this event for? ✨

Girl Bosses and aspiring Girl Bosses alike.

If you’re a woman who is already running your own business, whether it’s a side hustle or your full time gig, or dream of one day doing so, then this event is for you.

If you are a woman who:

Loves to be inspired by other women who are chasing their dreams. 
Loves to be surrounded by like-minded women.
Loves to support and lift other women up because you know there is room for us all to succeed.

Then this is the event for you.

It’s all about community and good vibes around ‘ere!

Who are the Girl Bosses who are speaking at this event? ✨

You gals are in for an inspiring night. I’m proud as punch to announce the following bosses will be sharing their stories with you all on the 4th June.

Jules Walker – Further Faster
Since her first solo adventure to Alaska when she was 18 years old, Jules Walker has been helping outdoor lovers, thrill seekers and dogs of all shapes and sizes get out into the great outdoors. She is passionate about getting women into the outdoors and into business, and sustainability in the workplace. She is co-founder and co-owner of Further Faster, New Zealands premier independent outdoor adventure importer, distributor and retailer. Having worked in the outdoor industry on and off for 20 years it was a natural progression for her and her business partners to start their own company. As well as finding time for adventures in the mountains with her friends, her loyal customers and her dog, she also continues to give back to the community by working part time for the emergency services.

Lucy McGregor – Lucy Kate Online
Lucy is the founder and Director of Lucy Kate Online, an international boutique digital advertising agency for wellness and sustainability brands.  After struggling with a series of health challenges in her mid 20s, Lucy knew that a traditional 9-5 corporate career was not what she wanted. She now owns and operates her own super successful digital marketing agency, and wants to show others how their business ideas and goals ARE possible, and that intuition and flow (as well as logic) are the keys to success. 
She combines her passions for health, environmentalism & the outdoors with her impressive marketing experience to develop and implement successful advertising strategies for her clients, executing a number of multiple 6-figure product launches every year. In her free time, you’ll find her up a mountain with her rescue pup Ted, or rock climbing somewhere with her partner in crime, Josh. Her favourite food is tacos and she drinks a lot of peppermint tea. Like, a LOT.

Sarah-Jane Stringer – Sarah-Jane Creative Studio
