Personal Growth and Learning

As you participate and engage in Mastermind Education for Women in Business community on a regular basis, you will discover additional self-confidence and evolve as a person. Meeting with a group of like-minded women can bring a tremendous amount of personal and professional growth.

Exclusive Community

You will be part of an exclusive community of like-minded women. Mastermind Education for Women in Business is an instant and valuable professional support network that helps build relationships whilst learning from other women’s experiences, skills, knowledge and expertise.

You will find yourself more inspired to take action when you have a support system cheering you on.

Energy & Flow

There may be days (or weeks) as an executive in your profession or business when you do not have much energy. However, when you are connected with other women and are aligned with your own heart and soul something happens and life starts to flow with ease and grace.

Supportive Environment

At the Mastermind Education for Women in Business community, Ilona and Jane will create a safe and supportive environment for all members. This way you can feel confident to identify your professional and personal goals and/or intentions openly and confidentially (and without the fear of judgement).

Educational Workshops

Each month your facilitators, Ilona and Jane, will introduce you to a keynote speaker who will present on a different focus area of business. The speakers will provide relevant, up-to-date and engaging content and we will also give you takeaway tools and tips you can utilise in business.

Encouragement and Support

You will have encouragement from fellow Mastermind Education for Women in Business members. When was the last time someone gave you genuine encouragement and celebrated your successes with you? We want to share your successes, no matter how big or small they may seem!

Why did we create Mastermind Education for Women in Business?

After meeting and listening to many women in business, Ilona and Jane saw a need for Mastermind Education for Women in Business. We investigated what was happening on the Gold Coast and found there was limited choice for executive women in business to come together, listen and learn from other experienced professionals and build strong relationships. Subsequently, Mastermind Education for Women in Business was created – supporting Female Business Owners and Executives to live their purpose and goals through the sharing of knowledge, ideas, strategies, systems and personal success stories, whilst utilising a peer accountability system.
