Sunshine Coast Women Entrepreneurs Network
Not for profit networking, business workshops and support
Thank you for another amazing event. I love the energy of the Sunshine Coast Women Entrepreneurs group. When I reflect on all the amazing connections and personal as well as professional growth I’ve achieved just by being in the energy of these wonderful women over the years, it makes me smile BIG with gratitude! – Nicole Taryn
Speaker Samantha Lyttle says “What a powerful group of fierce women leaders! Alex you run this group with such integrity and high standards and you’ve attracted a beautiful group of women with the same values. Congratulations, it was such a joy to be invited to speak on the ‘Power Of Positioning Yourself For Six Figure Success’. For those of you who haven’t attended the group yet, I highly recommend it. Surrounding yourself with other women leaders is essential to succeed in business!”

Helping women entrepreneurs reach their potential
by learning, laughing and sharing together
When I was starting out in business I was humbled by the time people took to reach out, share their wisdom and steer me in the right direction. I was given tips and strategies and introduced to people who could help me. True learning came about not by being handed the answers, but by having my eyes opened to the opportunities around me.
The Sunshine Coast Women Entrepreneurs is my way of giving back, by creating a space where people can share and connect authentically, learn and grow together.
The group is not-for-profit. My facilitation of the group, as well as the speakers’ time, is donated in the spirit of sharing. I believe the sharing of wisdom and the support of other women entrepreneurs cannot be bought or sold, it is something we gift eachother because we care. We are all in business together in this beautiful corner of the world, helping eachother to reach our potential and share our unique messages.

Meetings are held 1-4pm on a Saturday, at Amici Cafe Caloundra. All rsvps require prepayment via online ticketing to secure your place.Your ticket price of $32.50 includes a delicious two course a la carte meal catering to vegetarian, gluten free and omnivore diners, along with hot beverages, networking with amazing women and also 1.5 hours of business education in a hands-on workshop from our guest speaker. Seats for each meeting are limited to 38, to preserve the atmosphere of camaraderie and collaboration, so they sell out weeks in advance.
We start each meeting with a round table introduction of 30 seconds each. This is when everyone has a chance to let others know who they are and what services they offer. We then move to the guest speaker or discussion topic of the day.
There are two lucky prize winners at each event, both receiving a fabulous prize with a value of over $100. What an amazing gift to take home – a chance to deeply experience the amazing services and products of one of the people you have shared the business journey with.
The women who donate these generous gifts have a five minute speaking spot at the event. Imagine the leverage and value of an extended place in the spotlight at the Sunshine Coast’s most desirable business event. You’ll have the opportunity to share your expertise and passions with a motivated and supportive local audience and also offer a high value product or service to someone you know will appreciate and share the experience.

Who are the speakers?
Speakers are chosen by the educational value they can provide to the group – women come along expecting to learn something practical and meaningful to help take their business to the next level. We love to get involved with short exercises or workshops. The time allocated for the speaker is 1.5 hours.

Speaker Amanda Hoffman shares, “Alex Mitchell is a gracious, genuine and diligent facilitator of the Sunshine Coast Women Entrepreneur group. Alex approached me to conduct a LinkedIn workshop after Krishna Everson recommended me for the topic.
I was impressed by Alex’s warmth and genuine desire to share valuable information with her group of entrepreneurs. She kept me well informed and was particularly eager to ensure that she had all the information necessary both for my success as a speaker and any offerings on the day.
I am honoured to have been invited to such a warm, professional and savvy group of ladies. The fact that workshops sell out quickly and Alex has had this group now meet regularly for over eight years is a true reflection of her sharing nature and genuine desire to help people succeed.
If you are after a networking group that has your best interests at heart, or if you are a speaker wishing to share valuable information then Alex Mitchell’s Sunshine Coast Women Entrepreneur Group is an absolute must.”

Speaker Chris Wildeboer says, “I had been aware of the Sunshine Coast Women Entrepreneurs group run by Alex Mitchell and I was keen to be part of the group as a member and also as a presenter. I went through the easy process of applying by completing the Presenter’s Kit provided by Alex. The kit gave me a clear and concise understanding of what was expected of me and what I could expect from being a presenter for the group.
Alex was fantastic at supporting and encouraging me whenever I had a question about the process – this allowed me to have a very clear understanding of what I needed to offer to the group.
I presented a workshop on Balance in Business to the group at the beginning of 2015 and
was thrilled to provide real business value to every member on the day. I was given plenty of time to prepare my equipment, space to set up my banners and promotional material and then was able to relax and get to know the members!
I really enjoyed the opportunity to present to SCWE and I look forward to attending more of the events throughout this year and coming years.”
