152 Elizabeth Street
Join Business Women Australia with WeWork members and guests in Melbourne for our year end celebration. Be inspired by the personal stories shared by our panel of extraordinary women who see vulnerability as their superpower.
Together with our emcee Jessica Schubert, who is a renowned author and authority on leadership, our panellists will explore the lessons they have learnt, sharing from the heart. Their amazing successes and epic fails, how they overcame challenges and learnt important life lessons will help unlock the truth and debunk myths associated with achievement.
As the year end draws closer, let’s come together and celebrate each other’s journey as we look forward, building a better world where women in business are supported, inspired, connected and empowered.
Places are limited, so book your seat today.
A big thank you to our venue hosts, WeWork and for providing good and beverages. Come early and utilise the fabulous space at WeWork’s 152 Elizabeth Street location. Meet the team and be treated to a tour of the facilities and meeting rooms at 4.15pm with the official celebration and panel event starting at 5.00pm.

Kate Save, Be Fit Food: Kate is a clinical dietician, exercise physiologist, diabetes educator, and successful entrepreneur with over 20 years’ experience working in clinical health and fitness. She is the CEO and co-founder of Be Fit Food, Australia’s leading dietitian and doctor-designed meal provider which has delivered 2+ Million meals nationally. Among Be Fit Food’s many accolades, the company was named Telstra’s Victorian Business of the Year in 2018 and #29 in the AFR (Australian Financial Review) Fast Starters in 2019 and the Telstra Victorian Business of the Year again in 2022 for Championing Health. Kate is passionate about empowering individuals to achieve positive change — be it through sharing her wisdom on health, or her learnings in business. She is a regular media commentator and is often called upon by Australia’s leading news, health, and wellbeing titles to lend her expertise.
Antonette Golikidis, CEO AXCA Group: Would you give up a high-flying, globetrotting corporate career and go back to school to learn about natural therapies? Sell your home and plough your earnings from its sale — over half a million Aussie dollars — to invest in your business of creating toiletries for babies and children? You would, if you were Antonette Golikidis.
This, of course, is the story of a woman with a passion. But what it demonstrates, most importantly, is that a woman, with the right kind of verve, vision, passion, and guts, can make a stay-at-home mumtrepreneur business take off and soar.
Antonette leads the way with over 15 years of experience in cosmetic product development, brand creation as a talented business woman, an organic industry expert, toxin-free and eco-friendly advocate which makes her an approachable and enjoyable event speaker and mentor.
