Boss lady brunch

VOGUE Australia - - VOGUE SOIREE -

Vogue Aus­tralia part­nered with Tin­der for Aus­tralia’s first Boss Lady Brunch event at the Wat­son’s Bay Bou­tique Ho­tel, with Vogue’s dig­i­tal ed­i­to­rial di­rec­tor Ju­lia Frank quizzing girl boss, en­tre­pre­neur and Stylerun­ner CEO Julie Ste­vanja on what it takes to be just that: a boss lady. While the event was a first for Aus­tralia, it was just one of many that have taken place across the globe. The Boss Lady Brunch se­ries is de­signed to in­spire and en­cour­age the girl boss spirit in women ev­ery­where, while they en­joy a cu­rated brunch, learn from lead­ers and make mean­ing­ful con­nec­tions. Dur­ing the event, Ste­vanja shared what she has learnt as the boss and CEO of the on­line sports­wear re­tailer Stylerun­ner. “In those first few years I re­ally tried to put in as much ef­fort as I could. I was down at the ware­house getting boxes, do­ing what­ever it took,” Ste­vanja re­calls of kick­ing off her now boom­ing busi­ness. “Now I think my role is re­ally about em­pow­er­ing my team and so I try to work less in the busi­ness and more on the busi­ness …” Guests – in­clud­ing The Daily Edited’s Alyce Tran, in­flu­encers Na­dia Fair­fax and Tanja Gacic, as well as Mac­graw duo Tessa and Beth Mac­Graw – sipped on Tin­der-branded co­conuts and en­joyed açai and the de­li­cious cui­sine on of­fer from the Wat­son’s Bay Bou­tique Ho­tel kitchen.

The event also gave lead­ers a chance to net­work, meet­ing like-minded in­di­vid­u­als who are carv­ing out their own paths in busi­ness.

“By con­nect­ing with other en­trepreneurs you re­ally are con­nect­ing with peo­ple who are go­ing through some­thing sim­i­lar to you and it’s just so good to meet with peo­ple who un­der­stand the pres­sures in­volved,” says Ste­vanja of the day. Lilith Hardie Lupica
