Ditch the Marketing Mayhem

- Claire Symes

“Gather to grow has given me a clearer path of what I need to do although I have a big list. It has given me more people to reach out to for help, lots of great notes , and downloads and to know you're not alone and to have these like-minded friends is a big thing for me.”

- Kim Hardy

I had some reservations that centred around whether it was something I needed to do at this stage in my business & would I gain anything from it. But I left feeling on an absolute high! So pleased that I booked.  I'd gained some absolute gems of information, marketing tactics, and revived energy from some incredible women in this business. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone at any point in their journey. 

- Melissa Johnson-Peters

The talks were all really clear and structured and kept to their themes which was great. I appreciated that there were actionable steps mentioned at each stage rather than it being wishy washy or vague. It was applicable to people at different stages of their business journey so that everyone could take something from it.

- Holly Caro

The experience was so beautiful and the food was AMAZING! But being surrounded by amazing photographers and hearing your stories was just invaluable. It's given me a boost in confidence and I feel armed with lots of great information and tips to move forwards.

- Megan Foster

I was nervous to travel up by myself and leave my children. It's also scary when you don't know anyone else going especially for someone like me who keeps to themselves. But I absolutely loved it!! I was so excited just to get back home and start working on my business using all the ideas that the girls had provided. I felt part of a team and did not feel quite alone anymore.

- Emma Stones

"Gather to Grow has been the investment I knew I needed to elevate me and my brand. A nurturing, yet “no bullshit” approach to running a business – whether you are years into your business, or at the beginning of your journey. Real golden nuggets, that I was able to take away and implement."

- Nic T

- Stephanie Jubb

I’m just completely grateful that I attended Gather to Grow. I learnt more than I expected and came away full of adrenaline and resolve. The travel and cost to attend, plus time away from family and organising cover for me while away was absolutely worthwhile. 

- Kay Dawn

I loved the community, the openness of the speakers, the styling, and the quantity of knowledge shared. It inspired me to up my game.  

- Natalie Coultas

“Having set up my photography business 8 years ago I wasn't sure if there was any 'new' information I would take away, so was worried the content might be aimed more at beginners in the industry. But It was amazing! I left feeling Inspired, empowered, motivated, and for the first time in a while - self belief!”

- Phoebe Gilder

I feel so Inspired! Motivated! Emotional! Gather to Grow has given me the confidence to start charging what I am worth and the knowledge on how to do so and in what ways the price increase can be justified.
