Creative Entrepreneurs Panel - 22 September @ The Supper Club

By Networx Sydney

Whilst some companies will be happy to see the back of 2009, for three Australian entrepreneurs this year’s business has been booming. So what have they got that others haven’t?

Find out at our September 22 Networx event, when we invite three inspirational individuals to share the secrets of their success in our Creative Entrepreneurs panel.  We’ll hear from an Aussie beach bum now running a global swimwear empire, one of Australia’s most sophisticated PR mavens, and the brains behind one of the world’s leading online flower and giftwares businesses.

Our entrepreneur panelists include:

  • Sean Ashby, who saw a gap in the market for nylon swimwear and made a gutsy decision to spend his life savings setting up men’s swimwear and clothing business aussieBum. Despite having no background in retail, fashion or clothing, Ashby’s determination to go against the grain paid off: His label is now stocked in leading international department stores and has a growing cult following.
  • Trish Nicol, founder of the Trish Nicol Agency, who will share the story behind her designer Public Relations and Event Management Company, which in five years has grown to represent  some of the most prestigious brands in Australia and the world, including Cartier, Bentley, Mini Cooper and designers Toni Maticevski, Alannah Hill and Nobody Denim .
  • Roses Only founder James Stevens will share the story behind his pioneering decision to sell roses online, which saw his parent’s florist grow into a multimillion-dollar business that now has a presence in New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

Book online today at and ensure you don’t miss out.

Networx gets underway from 6.00pm, so please join us for a complimentary drink on arrival and networking through until 6.30pm when we’ll then be seated for the panel discussion and questions. Stick around for another drink and meet new people, with the bar open until 8.30pm.

See you there!
