About the program
The Office for Small and Family Business has partnered with the Port Adelaide Football Club (PAFC) to deliver a suite of networking and professional development opportunities in 2023 that support women business owners to achieve their growth ambitions.
HERstory: Business Collective event series
HERstory: Business Collective connects women in business, passionate about their profession and personal growth, who are generous in spirit and in sharing their knowledge to empower each other. This is a new initiative by the Port Adelaide Football Club established not only to support women but to create a platform and environment where women can elevate each other to achieve their goals and dreams inside and outside of the sporting arena.
Collective Conversations on the Couch
Two Collective Conversations on the Couch business networking events will be run in 2023. These events will feature inspiring women across leadership, small business and the corporate environment.
The events will have a theme, a purpose and a distinct message for the attendees. Lessons will be shared, with networking opportunities available and connections made across the community.
Female Founders - Lunch and Learn Masterclasses
Two Lunch and Learn Masterclasses will involve an intimate boardroom round table for female small business owners, providing them access to share knowledge and business advice.
The Masterclasses will be hosted and facilitated by an experienced female business owner. They will be run in small groups which will provide a comfortable environment for attendees to ask questions and to seek input from those more experienced.
Business Network Creation
Establishing HERstory: Business Collective as a brand and a network will enable more women in business to broaden their network and support each other.
Port Adelaide Football Club will also launch a non-traditional, fee-free membership for women in business, small business owners and entrepreneurs will be able to support each other and share advice and knowledge.
