    For our next Meet the Member special event, we are putting the spotlight on Erin Barnes, founder of Next Generation Wellness, creator of the 4Cs Coaching Methodology (a wellbeing, stress resilience and behaviour change success framework), and the author of both The Whole Life Success Planner and My Best Life Planner for kids.

    ‘Stress' and its impact has been a focus area for Erin for over 20 years, after her Rheumatoid Arthritis diagnosis was delivered to her at 19 years of age whilst she was studying how to optimise human performance and training at elite level sport.

    Within the 3-month period that followed this time, she found herself unable to walk and with relentless fatigue that negatively impacted most areas of her life. 
    Erin continued to research the missing links to her own physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing, and how they each stacked together to restrict her ability to live her life at peak potentiality.

    Using this education, she has translated the complex science and research into a framework of simple, inter-disciplinary behaviours that enable vitality, wellbeing, and high performance across all life areas.

    On Thursday, 8th October at 12:00pm, our Membership Extraordinaire Natalie Tink will be hosting a captivating online conversation with Erin to chat about her work with individuals, families and organisations, specialising in physical health, mental wellbeing, emotional intelligence, and stress resilience.

    So, join in the conversation, show your support for our wonderful SCBWN members, and learn from some of the best business women on the Coast!

    When the economy tightens, it is natural that businesses focus on cutting expenses to stay afloat.  The other side of the profitability equation sometimes get ignored.  In our October breakfast we are focusing on revenue generation and how you can identify and implement new strategies for a strong 2021.

    To kickstart your thinking and planning, we are joined by international strategist and consultant, James McCarthy!

    James will show guests how to rethink their numbers to drive revenue and will share a framework that can be applied to any business type.  James will provide you with practical steps for identifying the type of activity required to meet your business goals and position your business for success.

    So, join us at The Lakehouse Sunshine Coast on Tuesday, October 13th from 6:45am – 8:30am and get ready for a bigger and better 2021 in your business.

    Talking Values Based Business with Sarah Wilson
    Thursday, 12th November | 5:30pm - 8:00pm
    NightQuarter, Birtinya

    This is a call to action for each and every business leader on the Sunshine Coast!  In fact, this is a call to action for each and every human on the Sunshine Coast.

    Are you living your life with purpose and drive?  Do you ever feel conflicted between how you need to act within your business or employment and your personal value set?  Did 2020 make you wake up and think, my life needs to be different!

    In partnership with the Sunshine Coast Council, the SCBWN is beyond thrilled to invite the Sunshine Coast to our much anticipated, November keynote event that places Sarah Wilson, former journalist and TV presenter, author and activist, and the creator of the ‘I Quit Sugar’ empire, on stage to provide insights into the drive behind giving it all up as her business became too unhinged with her own personal values.

    Sarah was previously the editor of Cosmopolitan Australia, host of Masterchef Australia and founder of the largest wellness website in Australia,, before she closed the business in May 2018 and gave all money to charity. Sarah now builds and enables charity projects that “engage humans with each other” and campaigns on mental health and climate issues. Sarah is ranked as one of the top 200 most influential authors in the world and has just released her latest book ‘This  One Wild and Precious Life’ in September, 2020.

    Sarah joins us at the on Thursday, November 12th at the freshly ribbon-cut, NightQuarter venue.  She will transform the way you think about values-based business and value-based decisions!

    Gathered in the award-winning street food, night market and entertainment destination, NightQuarter is a unique blend of street food, community, and culture. With a spirit of shared experience and shared conversation, the shipping container urban playground is the perfect spot for our local business community to come together.

    This venue will only open the week prior and we will be amongst the first to experience it! This event is open to all. So, tell your colleagues, your family, and your friends.

    Whether you are male or female, start-up or corporate, a small business or large, we urge you to come along, check out this wonderous new food and entertainment venue on the Sunshine Coast, and be inspired to uncover and uphold your own personal values.

    Event bookings and dietaries close Thursday, 5th of November.

    This event is proudly presented in partnership with the Sunshine Coast Council.
