Six Connecting Rural Business Women’s conferences have been held and
hundreds of women have had the opportunity to learn, share and connect with each other.

We have decided its time to bring this chapter to a close
and would like to thank everyone who has been involved,

our speakers, workshop presenters, participants, sponsors and supporters.

We’ve enjoyed the journey of discovery with you and now look forward to catching up
at the many other events for women that are now available.

Best wishes to you all

Karen & Trish


Connecting Rural Business Women is a conference designed by women for women to help them develop personally and professionally:

– Providing high quality keynote speakers with practical and inspirational stories to share enabling women from different industry areas to present workshops, highlighting their diversity and talent and showcasing their businesses.
– Providing an environment of warmth, celebration, collaboration and encouragement drawing in women from across Victoria and southern NSW from all walks of life to share ideas and make connections.CRBW-logo

In its sixth year, the overarching theme for CRBW2017 was
‘Connecting to the wisdom of our past’

There were 16 workshops for participants to choose from,
plus inspiring key note speakers and a panel discussion.
