Babes in Business – Babes, Boys and Beers

20 Mar

On Friday evening the hubby and I were very fortunate to attend the first Babes, Boys and Beers event hosted at possibly one of Brisbane’s most iconic and treasured tourism icons, the XXXX Brewery. The event was coordinated by the wonderful team at Babes in Business! A little back ground for those of you who are not aware of Babes in Business.  Started 8 years ago, Babes in Business was created to support talented women in business, and to provide them with opportunities in the corporate domain to showcase their talents and successes. Babes in Business is all about celebrating women’s achievements both personally and professionally. It’s about connecting fabulous women through events, mentoring programs, debates and learning.

The evening was designed to encourage babes to bring along a male friend or partner to share in a fun evening of fabulous beer, food and company. The ‘Tales and Ales’ experience was lead by James Squire Beer Specialist, Andrew Gowdie, who was a wealth of knowledge. The selection of 5 beers were perfectly matched to mouth watering canape’s, including a dessert, which, oddly, included a dessert beer! Who would have thought?!? It was something my husband and I probably wouldn’t have done off our on bat, and was a great opportunity to network and meet new people. It also proved to be a great place to catch up with old acquaintances!

Overall the evening was really enjoyable and so well put together. I am looking forward to attending more Babes in Business Events! A special thanks also goes out to Bellinda Grimwade for making Chris and I feel so welcome. To find out more information on upcoming events and membership, head on over to the Babes in Business website.
