Melbourne’s First Career Expo for Working Mothers

What a week it’s been, getting ready for the Career Ideas for Mums Expo. On the eve of this inaugural event, I’ve been reflecting on what an exhilarating journey this must have been for the mastermind behind this event, Danielle Ross Walls.

When I first met Danielle at the Motivating Mum Expo and Business Awards I was impressed by her passion and conviction for creating a very real alternative for Mums considering their return to work after having children.

As a speaker and stall holder for this event, I’ve enjoyed watching the planning and excitement unfold. Danielle is tenacious and has been very successful securing both sponsorship and media coverage for this event – which is no mean feat.

She was first featured in her local Leader newspaper, with The Hobsons Bay Leader in this article on 16th September.

Well done Danielle for your passion for mums seeking more flexible career options.

And THANK YOU for all your hard work.

I am looking forward to an incredible day tomorrow, working with an inspiring collection of mums in business, helping other mums on their professional journey.
