Hate typical cringey networking events? Us too.

The #1 feedback I hear from Golden Brands networking events is “I normally HATE networking events, but I loved this.”

Zero weirdness. Zero forced small talk.

Lots of *natural* ways to connect with other small business owners (who, for the record, hate cringey networking events too!). 

Here’s the timetable

Morning Sessions

Afternoon Sessions

I made my most profitable business contact at a conference just like this one.

But first, who am I?

I’m Lisa Macale, mum of 2, wife of 1, annnd director of this conference, and Golden Brands, an online community for small business owners who want to grow their business. 

10 years and 3 businesses ago when I had just started my wedding styling business, I was sitting in a conference just like this one, when the host told us to introduce ourselves to the person next to us.

And sitting next to me? A small business owner also in the wedding industry. Also the contact who would go on to help me bring in over $10 000 revenue to my business.

This one connection was pivotal to my business. Would I have grown without her? Sure, but it would’ve taken a lot longer. 

Although we can do so much digitally, there are some things that the digital world can never replace:

  • making real life business connections
  • catching the energy of a room full of creativity, ambition and inspiration
  • undivided time to learn from the best (instead of signing up to another course you *think* you’ll finish)


Can’t wait to see you at the conference…meet you at the snack table!

Lisa xx
