Hourglass is a group I founded in 2010 when I was busy building my communications career, and developing and growing my consulting business. Needless to say, I was round the clock busy, and found that I was meeting such amazing women in my day to day with limited time to connect and build long-lasting relationships. Hence the first Hourglass was born (before it even had a name). To get everyone into one place, I hosted a brunch event at my home with 40+ amazing, smart, influential, business-oriented, and entrepreneurial women gathered round to meet and share in a relaxed and secure environment. I made sure to strategically introduce to assure everyone felt welcomed and made the most of their time, I also promoted and encouraged attendees to believe in themselves and chase their dreams no matter how big or small, and the conversations and popularity of the events flourished from there. Hourglass has come a long way since, with my first ticketed event taking place officially under the name Hourglass in 2016
An hourglass is an ancient time piece, it’s many times compared to the shape of a women’s body – but for us it’s more about breaking glass ceilings and making the most of our time. It’s about finding balance, being true to ourselves and loving what we do. So raise your glass to success, Hourglass.
