START YOUR JANUARY WITH THE MOST EMPOWERIN DAY OF 2017!
Festival Of Doers is day of inspiration and positive action. We will talk about living our passion, creating meaningful careers that make a positive impact and ‘having it all’ by maintaining a balanced lifestyle.
IT'S A GATHERING OF WOMEN WHO WANT TO DO AMAZING THINGS
The festival schedule will alternate between talks (it's an amazing line-up!), and smaller gatherings of expert lead “DOER WORKSHOPS”. During the breaks you will have a chance to meet and connect with the other festival attendees and get to know amazing brands for modern ‘doers’ at the Doer Village.
BIG IDEAS, SMALL STEPS
We all want to get inspired, but it's much harder to turn those ideas into reality. With the help of our volunteer 'Doers' you will be able to make the first small step towards your dreams.
