What is #ArtfulBizCon?

This event is a business conference with a creative twist. It focuses on creating, building and maintaining your business in an artful and authentic way. This is a business conference packed with practical and meaningful development skills, inspirational stories and speakers with a whole lot of heart and soul mixed in. More than just an event, it is a community of like-minded people who want to build empires in a way that is different to what we all grew up thinking business had to be. Connecting with this community will see you finding support, growing your networks and making real friends.

The Artful Business Conference is a GAMECHANGER for passionate entrepreneurs and self-employed creatives and makers just like you.

What our attendees have to say

The Artfulbizcon totally rocked. I was inspired by the entrepreneurial journeys and stories there. I loved connecting in person and all the hugs. The workshops were a great opportunity to learn and implement.

Mitlé Southey

Coach & Mentor, Dare To Flourish

I didn’t think artful was for me because I’m not an artist. Well, I’m pleased to say I was wrong. Even though I’ve been in business for 16 years, there is always more to learn.

Renee Hasseldine

Online Course Creator, Share Your Passion

Four years of ABC, and I am still learning. It’s the ultimate refining process, and an amazing way to connect with like-minded folk and forge friendships & collaborations. Just dip your toes in the virtual space and try it.

Dawn Lewis

Maker & Designer, Dawn Lewis Imagery

Together we support, grow and learn. You’ll feel empowered and filled to the brim with useful information after an event.

The core event is fully catered. Meaning Saturday and Sunday we have you covered with Morning Tea, Lunch, Afternoon Tea and all the beverages you need throughout the day. Social Events are Pay Your Own Way and are not covered in your ticket price.

I Have Food Allergies – Can You Cater For Me?

We sure can! We are yet to announce the venue as we are waiting to confirm details but we can promise that food allergies will be catered for and we simply ask that you let us know at the time of registration exactly what your food requirements are.

Does the ticket include accommodation?

No. The ticket price is for the Event only. You are responsible for any travel and accommodation costs.

Do I Need To Have A Business Already?

Short answer – NO! If you are craving something different, have considered starting a business or even just a blog to see where it goes, you will learn so much to help you take those first few steps.

I Have Been In Business For Years – Will I Learn Anything?

YES! The incredible speakers have so much knowledge to impart to you, not to mention the calibre of the attendees. You also get access to all of the previous event materials which cover a variety of business aspects from social media, money and profit, legals, e-newsletters, online selling, branding, business planning, business building and so much more.

What Is The Dress Code For The Event?

Smart casual. Wear something that you are going to be comfortable in as the focus of the event is on the work and the learning you will do over the two days. Wear clothes that are YOU! This is not your typical business conference so suits and such are only welcome if that is what you feel most comfortable in.

Can I Bring My Kids?

We want to make it clear that babies under the age of 9 months are welcome to attend the event with you. In 2017 our fearless leader had her 2 month old TWINS at the the event (luckily her amazing partner and MIL came to look after them while she was busy running the show). There will not be facilities to care for children any older than this but we understand new babies need their mums and so prams and bubs are more than welcome at the event. We do ask that you respect the other guests and if bub is having a cry that you leave the room until they have settled again.
