“There’s nothing more powerful than a woman determined to rise,” and at our monthly Babes Who Brunch event this saying could not ring truer. While the title sounds like an experience for the most basic, it is anything but, as each event goes way beyond the surface offering a safe space for strong and powerful women to gather together and embrace their vulnerabilities. Think Beyonce’s Lemonade, instead of Britney Spears’ Blackout.
Each Babes Who Brunch event begins with the intention to grow, connect with one another and become comfortable in the uncomfortable, and it is led by one fierce female keynote speaker who shares her insights, experiences and life story – aka #realtalk for real women.
Beyond the raw conversation, there is, of course, delicious brunch time eats and sips, making it the perfect start to your Saturday, providing you all the fuel you need to head into the weekend, and better yet, all the inspiration and insight you need to get a grip on your goals and kick-start your hustle long after.
Whether you come for the bubbles, the brunch or to hear from an incredible lady boss, it doesn’t matter. All are celebrated, all are welcome and all will leave feeling empowered through the connection and community built at this signature ACE event.
Babes who brunch; real talk for real women, over brunch.
Our March 17th Babes Who Brunch – Toronto Edition features Julie Harrish, Chief Idea Officer at 6IX Cycle Spin Studio.
Ticket price includes a welcome mimosa, coffee, a two-course brunch, a curated gift bag and impactful takeaways from a keynote speaker.
