INSPIRE18 Event Wrap Up

On Tuesday Wedded Wonderland & Creative Business Hub hosted Australia’s largest Creative Business Summit, Inspire 18, and it’s safe to say that it was a huge success!

By bringing together the industry’s best, and allowing them to share their business highs and lows, tips and tricks, and valuable insights, attendees walked away absolutely inspired and with an invaluable bank of knowledge.

“I’ve spoken at numerous international events and felt I needed to bring something back home to Australia, so I handpicked all of the speakers to ensure that we get the right content and that speakers would be willing to share their knowledge and lessons learnt,” shared Wendy El Khoury from Wedded Wonderland.

Hosted by the incredible Bahar Etminan from Rescu Me Academy at the gorgeous Le Montage with its stunning views and service, panellists such as Natalie Anne, Jason James, Ameer El-Issa and Phillip Carr, Taryn Williams, Lana Wilkinon and Alyce Tran, to name a few, shared their invaluable knowledge, including how to create a social media strategy, how to engage influencers, and how to drive in-store and online sales for your business.The gorgeous Elle Ferguson also joined the event, and sat down with Bahar to talk a little more about her career and what it took to get to her position.

Panel discussions weren’t the only highlight of the day, as attendees of Inspire 18 were able to break out into two groups for a more intimate Round Table discussion.

With Wendy El-Khoury and Diane Khoury leading one group, and Natalie Anne, Jason James, Ameer El-Issa, and Melissa Sassine at the other, attendees were given the opportunity to ask all of the hard questions and learn the nitty-gritty details of what it takes to run a successful business.

To wrap up this incredible event, all guests were invited to a networking cocktail session, giving them the opportunity to connect with old, and new, friends, and gain important industry connections. With My Champagne Ladies offering drinks, it was the perfect way to end the day. We look forward to hosting next year!

“It was, shockingly, such a great day for me. I had a panic attack Monday night and I was so worried about how my anxiety would affect me, but I think it was the least anxious day I’ve had in a public space in 3 years 😵 I prayed a lot that it would go smoothly and God definitely provided.
I met so many wonderful people who follow me here on insta. Meeting you guys is honestly my favourite thing. It’s so humbling and I just want to shower you all with love!
I also had the opportunity to meet other creatives I follow and am constantly inspired by. Please go and follow my new favourite human @jasonjamesdesign. I think meeting him was the highlight of my day. He is INCREDIBLE.
Overall it was just a hugely humbling and uplifting event. Being in a room full of like minded people is so encouraging 🙌🏻”

“After an amazing day at #inspire18 hosted by @creativebusinesshub & @weddedwonderland with so many incredible people, I have finally decided to rebrand myself back to my original roots. I’ve been going back and forth whether to change my brand for sometime now and have had this design sitting there just waiting. After today, I know it’s the direction I’m ready to take my brand! 🙌”
