#STANDTALL event – Empowering Women in Tech & Business

Welcome to Poppy Renegade’s fourth event!


After three sell-out events, we’re back fulfilling our mission: To create an evening full of inspiration, valuable lessons in life and business, and the opportunity to meet like-minded women.

Led by an inspiring panel of thought leaders – our Empowering Women in Tech & Business evening is designed to have you walking away feeling motivated and with a clear vision for what you want and the steps to get there.

Do you have an entrepreneurial idea, or perhaps looking at getting into the industry and be a part of the innovative boom? Are you looking for tips on how social media can be used to support your business? We’re looking to drive that motivation for you and inspire a new generation of women to step confidently into this space and industry.


WHERE: UBER HQ – 30/580 George St, Sydney CBD

WHEN: Tuesday, August 29

TIME: 6pm-9pm

FOOD + DRINK: Enjoy meals and organic juice by Eat Fit Food, plus Veuve Clicquot – as no Poppy event is complete without a glass of champagne.

Start the evening with a light meditation, take-in the enlightening panel discussion by our keynote speakers, network with other like-minded women… and take home a gift bag filled with $60 worth of product.
