QLD | Networking Event | Brisbane ***ON HOLD***

WNA and Red Hill Gallery Event

Fire Up Your Business | COVID and Beyond

*** Further to the latest COVID-19 outbreak, the announcement by the Queensland Premier to avoid large gatherings where possible, and the continuing contact tracing in the broader community, we have made the decision to put this Event on HOLD until further notice.  We will continue to monitor the situation.  We wish health, happiness and safety to our members and their immediate family.***

We are here to Fire Up Your Confidence in Business again. It’s all about being confident in yourself, setting new goals and priorities based on where you are at.

This is our first live event since COVID-19 restrictions hit.  Come and hear from two inspiring businesswomen who will share their secrets to business success during these challenging and unprecedented times. They’ll discuss how they had to pivot their businesses, engage in the virtual world and expand the online capacity of their businesses.  Not only survived but thrived!


Anne Noonan, Director – Yoga Forever 

Anne is an Integrative Wellness Coach, Yogini and Nutrition junkie. She works with women to help them create the second half of life they dream of through nutrition and functional movement. As someone who has gone through her own health journey, recovery and transformation, Anne enjoys sharing her knowledge with all who are facing those ‘beyond’ years.

When asked what she’s most excited about now that COVID-19 restrictions have eased Anne said “I am ecstatic to be meeting face to face with my clients again – mostly private clients. And I’m loving my new online program’

Carol Haffke, Proud Owner – The Shoe Garden

Meet Carol Haffke. Carol walked away from more than two decades working in journalism, public relations and fundraising, and within a few months opened the doors of her beloved shop, The Shoe Garden, in Bulimba. The Shoe Garden has no nanna shoes or comfort shoes. Her two criteria: they have to be available up to at least a size 12, if not longer, and they have to be gorgeous!

Both Carol and Anne had to adjust to no customers coming through the door. Yoga Studios were closed, no walk-through traffic, no casual browsing was allowed, and definitely no yoga under the trees at Toowong!

No doubt you will hear additional success stories, strategies how to pivot and remain in front of your customers from other attendees who have endured similar challenges and found ways to overcome them.


This event will be adhering to the Food Services Industry COVID Safe Plan, implementing the social distancing requirements due the COVID-19 pandemic. There will be a Contract Tracing Register at our Registration Desk, that will be required to be completed and signed on arrival. It is also a requirement to be seated during the event.

Due to the COVID-19 protocols, we have made adjustments to the menu. The talented chef has created a beautiful selection of hot and cold substantial savoury and sweet items which will be provided on individual serving plates. This will be complemented by your choice of tea or barista coffee, ordered directly with the wait staff.
