Melbourne business woman and winner of the prestigious 2010 AusMumpreneur of the Year accolade Antonette Golikidis is one of a list of high-profile speakers who will inspire business women in Melbourne next month.

The Little Innoscents owner will speak about how she set up this international business from her kitchen bench around her young son and what the award means for her business in the future.

After the success of the annual conference held in Brisbane in July, Connect2Mums owners Peace Mitchell and Katy Garner designed the Melbourne Mumpreneurs One-Day Conference to be packed with successful business women who combine doing business with being a mum.

“We have put together a fantastic line up of speakers for our Melbourne event and can’t wait to meet in person all the talented women we know online,” Peace said.

“It is so exciting for Connect2Mums to expand from our online community and we love seeing members motivate each other with their amazing stories about business and life.

“Connect2Mums is such a friendly and enthusiastic network, we can’t help wanting to take it from the online space and meet members in real life. This is going to be a fantastic day full of great information, fun, chocolate and networking,” she added.

The event at Rydges Melbourne on October 20 will showcase a number of topics affecting not just women in business, but also working mothers. Some of these topics include social media, systems, branding, PR and the media and product launches.

Other speakers include Alycia Edgar of bookzkeeper, Sam Mutimer of Thinktank Media, Rebecca Derrington of SourceBottle and Dannielle Michaels and Monique Filer of

The speakers will not only share their own experiences as case studies for attendees, but also offer advice and tips on having it all in business and life.

Tickets for the Melbourne Mumpreneurs One-Day Conference are $160 and can be purchased at
