We did it, AGAIN!
The ANZ Geelong Small Business Expo took off with a bang over the weekend at The Pier, Geelong with over 100 businesses involved across the Marketplace, Exhibitors, Event Contributors, Fashion Show and Cocktail Party.
A huge thank you to our sponsors ANZ, City of Greater Geelong - Enterprise Geelong, Geebiz, Australia Post Small Business Hive, Villarosa Real Estate, On the Decorative Fringe, 6ft6 wines, Polizzi Photography and to everyone who helped and supported us along the way and on the day. All proceeds from the event, raffle and auction go to TLC for Kids establishment of the Geelong Auxiliary and we were thrilled with the donations and involvement of the Geelong Community.
A big thank you to our special guests who brought the spirit of Geelong to our event in the incredible Daryl Reader from Bay 93.9 who also showed off his Fashion Knowledge hosting the Fashion Show alongside Samantha, Lee "Stampsy" Stamps from Krock who also strutted her stuff down the Villarosa Fashion Runway, Sandi and the gorgeous girls Bella & Gigi from Kids Fashion Blogger who stole the show alongside the runway, Stone Cold Steve Moxon 2-Time World Champion Kickboxer and owner of the Training Room Geelong for his motivation speech at our fun-filled Cocktail Party fuelled by 6ft6 wines to close the day.
Not to mention, hand on heart, a superstar thank you to all of the amazing businesses that were involved on the day. The room was buzzing with such a supportive and connecting culture and vibe, with businesses networking and collaborating everywhere we looked! Nik from Bearded Brew sold so many coffees that he ran out of cups, so the coffee and connecting was overflowing!
Finally, I could not have done it without my truly amazing Geelong Women in Business Team in Pamela Dorward, Hannah Goodfellow, Ruby Turner, Amanda Sherring, Lauren Tyrrell, Natalie Polizzi, Lee Stamps, Jayde Heywood, Ash Koorn & Claudine Calliebot!!
