"You don't make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas." - Shirley Chisholm

Business owners are at the forefront of implementing their ideas, they are the change makers, the equality strivers, the doers actually making a difference.

This event is for you.

Take a day out of the grind to celebrate your contribution to the world.

Alongside her Husband, Phyllis founded Little People's Place with zero experience in child care, and having sold their family home to purchase a run-down $600,000 centre in East Fremantle.

After 15 years of hard work, building their empire to a chain of 14 child care centres, they recently sold for a $40 million dollar deal.

Olivia Vlachou

Co-Founder of All The Dresses

Olivia is the 36 year old co-founder of Australia's top rental marketplace All The Dresses, which she founded with her husband Basil, to whom she also shares two beautiful boys with Nicholas 4, and Louie 2. ATD was often described as their first child, however Olivia now describes it as their 'third child', describing herself as a mother above all else who is extremely passionate about fashion and business. Through motherhood Olivia became very passionate about storytelling and sharing how Motherhood and business intertwine. She loves nothing more than to connect, inspire and elevate other women within this space and to encourage others to strive for their version of 'the dream life'. It takes a village to raise a business, but it also takes a village to raise children, throw in working everyday with the father of your children and Olivia has a lot of stories and lessons to share!

The wild success of All The Dresses resulted in her leaving the event and styling industry prior to having the boys to put all her focus on the flourishing business, which now partners with Australia's top professional rental boutiques across Australia & New Zealand, with over 15,000 items available to hire in the one place. She oversees Styling, Creative, Marketing, Social Media and Partner Relations for All The Dresses.

Olivia believes in building a sustainable investment wardrobe full of quality essentials but understands that many women value choice and variety. With ATD, Olivia wanted to offer a service that makes high- end clothing accessible and affordable to everyone - a place you could turn to at any point of your life to dress the body you're in, an alternative option to fast fashion. She is passionate about making a difference to the world her sons grow up in and with Australia being one of the world's largest consumers of textiles per capita, consuming an average of 27kg of textiles per year and discarding 23kg, she aims to change the way women shop.
