We will do our best to change the dates of the events if such thing happens.

This year I invite you to our annual conference for 2022 where you’ll have the opportunity to…

… Restore, Reconnect, Realign …

This is your opportunity to take a break. Come and learn from some inspirational Christian women and focus on restoring your soul. Reconnect with God, and claim your identity so you can realign yourself and your mission with your Father in Heaven.

Our aim is to have you leaving feeling confident in who you are, confident in your faith, and refreshed to start the year ahead.. 

On Saturday, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in our retreat sessions and hear from our unique range of keynote speakers and The Panel. Our speakers will be sharing their knowledge on identity, business & God, inspirational business stories, marketing basics, plus more…  You’ll have time to yourself to do what you’d like with…

Saturday Night is networking party night, we’ll be getting dressed up in our favourite “feel good” outfits and letting our hair down for the night, making new business besties.
(Think drinks and canopies next to the pool)

Followed by Sunday, which will be our Retreat & God time. During these sessions can take some timeout, hear from Lorellee on The Blessing of Abraham, tips about running an eCommerce store, followed by some planning & our ever loved prophetic session. 

We are so looking forward to hosting this 2022 conference for you, Lovely. We know that God is going to delight in you!

See you there!

Meet Our Speakers

Emma Willmann


Emma may be the world’s first criminal prosecutor turned style coach, it’s hard to say. Yes, Emma’s path was unconventional but it also taught her how to straddle different arenas and create her own niche.

Emma  went from a demanding career in the law, to being a mama of 4, whilst building her own image consultancy and coaching business.

In the early days, juggling roles was unnerving but over time, it gave Emma a roadmap, the Signature Style Strategy, which she now uses to fast forward her client’s through life and career growth and use their image to continually kick goals.

Emma will be taking us through a session on our identity and our businesses.

Heart-Felt connection

be united

Each year at CWIBL, we love to get together and have one big Business Social and our CWIBL Annual Conference is just that.

A massive business social and it doesn’t matter if you are not part of our membership, this conference is for every lady out there and we welcome all women to take part in our conference.

The Pannel

What do our delegates think...?

Karen Maurer

This weekend away was perfect in every way. This was my first time meeting anyone in person with CWIB, but amazingly it felt like there was an instant connection with people, as if we’d known each other for years.
I felt God honoured us by intentionally taking time out, and he was speaking so tenderly, beautifully and personally. The speakers were amazing, and you could hear their passion to run after God’s own heart, and encouragement for us to do the same.
I love that I found women who ‘get it’ to have a business and a family and other parts of life. I learned lots of strategies to keep moving forward, even when it seems tough, or make a call to a listening ear.
I feel totally blessed and honoured to have been a part of this weekend. I can totally recommend it and would love to come again.

Jen Lackersteen

What a weekend! I learned more about myself, my strengths and weaknesses, and what to let go of in my business to be more successful. It can be so hard in the busyness of life to stop and make time to allow God to speak to you. Having that time during the conference was priceless. I’m sure I’ll see results in all aspects of my life in the coming days and months.

Kelly Wood

You all worked so hard to make it such a beautiful and life-changing event. Something I will never forget. I love this community with all my heart.

an intimate weekend for you


We have spoken with the conference centre and we would look at moving the conference date if something comes up regarding COVID and not giving out refunds. We have to pay the conference centre in instalments throughout the year that’s why we can’t offer refunds.
We can pass tickets on to others or you can sell your ticket to others but no refunds I’m afraid simply because we don’t get refunds from people who drop out from the conference centre.

No it’s not it’s for everyone! A lot of our members come because they love to opportunity to catch up with other members and meet them face to face, as well as the value and calibre of speakers and what each of them bring.

No, literally any is welcome to join conference those who know Jesus and those who don’t.

Nope, we encourage any woman who is thinking about starting a business or those who have been in business for twenty years! You will be in a room full of the wisdom of those in business that you can ask questions and be inspired.

We are at a different venue this year and the venue charges more for each person to stay so the prices had to go up so we don’t kick ourselves in the foot and leave ourselves short. It’s still great value for money. I don’t know many business conferences out there, that are under $700.00AUD’s and offer accommodation as well as food and conference entry fee.
People will be surprised at how much conferences are to run, but our God is big and He supplies. So if He wants you to be there, don’t even look at the numbers, instead look to God. He will supply.
*As a side note, we don’t make a profit from the conferences and our Founder SJ doesn’t get paid for it either. We hold our conferences because we believe in the power of them, we believe in all the women out there and what they are doing through their businesses and we want to encourage, strengthen, and unite them. This is just one of those avenues that accomplishes that and that the Holy Spirit has anointed.
It’s for women who…
Want to come for a weekend of restoration in Jesus. For those who want to re-cup, recharge, and spend some time with God to work on their businesses or their dreams.
It’s for those who want to expand their faith and be encouraged to think out of the box and deepen their relationship with God.
It’s for those who want to get around other women so they can learn and make forever friends with.
It’s for those who want to learn about marketing and leadership. If you’re thinking it’s time to expand your business/team and bring on extra staff or even your first team member. You can learn from those who have gone before you.
It’s for those who give and need some time to receive and be filled up.
…and it’s for the woman out there who has dreams that are bigger than herself.
So if you’re a Christian woman in business or planning on being, we’d love to invite you to join a weekend like no other…

At present we are only offering upgrades. If you wish to upgrade, please purchase the ticket you wish to upgrade to, then send us an email and we will refund you the amount of your lower ticket.
