We invite you to join a dynamic  & vibrant network of business partners, sponsors and members.


Sunshine Coast Business Women's Network

How do you possibly wrap up the year that is 2021?  As we are all faced with the need to adapt and change to an ever evolving world, it becomes even more apparent to me that being surrounded by a network of individuals that are focused on supporting, uplifting and empowering each other is a gift in itself.

It literally feels like yesterday that I became the president and yet six months has passed.  This role would certainly form one of the highlights of my year and I am so grateful to each of you that you choose to be part of something special.  We all have different reasons for coming together as members and I hope that as you reflect on the year past you too hold very fond memories of the role SCBWN has played in your life and business this year.  My reason for being a member has always been connection and I leave every interaction with this network feeling uplifted because of each of you.  I particularly love that so many of you seek me out at events to share how the network has impacted you.

Whether you are preparing for a break, or gearing up for your busy season, may you focus on how you can find joy in the little moments.  As a network we have set the theme of empowerment for our year in 2022 and will deliver programs and events that enable you to lead your most empowered life in business.  This brings me to thanking my extraordinary committee that give so much of themselves to their volunteer roles.  I couldn’t do it without them. 

I am not going to pretend that 2022 will not come without its challenges, but what I do know is that we are stronger together.  So from me to you, thank you for being part of making my world a better place and I wish you a joyous holiday season. 

Stay calm, stay strong, stay supported.

With gratitude,

Min Swan
