Baby in the Boardroom: Pitching & Presenting with Kids

February 23, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join other women entrepreneurs to learn more about the fine art of mixing babies and business with seasoned presenter + mama Amy Lynch.

Is it possible to mix babies and business? Presenter Amy Lynch of Mixing Business and Babies shares her first-hand experience of pitching and presenting alongside her kids as babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.

There are a number of reasons why parents show up in their business with kids in tow, including:

• Lack of affordable or accessible childcare

* Parenting style (feeding, routines)

• No local village or support network

• Because they want to

In this 90-minute workshop, you will learn:

• How to prepare for events as a parent

• The best way to show up (with your kids) in business settings

• How to present in-person, virtual and hybrid audiences alongside little ones

• Learn mindset affirmations, practices and rituals to build confidence

PLUS each attendee will also receive a mini PDF guide to help them navigate the business world with kids in tow.

Please note: Live Zoom transcription will be enabled during this event. Should you require other accessibility supports, please email [email protected] as soon as possible since advance notice is necessary to arrange for some accessibility services.

Registered attendees will be emailed a Zoom link to the online session by separate email prior to the event.
