Day with the Queen

Step away from your business for a day of clarity, inspiration, practical help and new friendships


It’s been a tough few years, am I right? From Covid to increasing housing costs to the rising cost of living, it’s all, well, it’s a lot! Especially if you’re also trying to keep your business afloat.

We know. We’re with you. But we’ve also got a helpful option for smoothing over some of the rough edges – and that’s our Day with the Queen!

Our inaugural Day with the Queen in 2022 was such a hit. But it also took a lot of work at a time when there were a lot of other pressures. So it took a backseat in 2023 (while we had a scrumptious intimate dinner for 50 instead).

But we missed it (and so did you we hear)! After all, we all need hope and inspiration and fun! Oh my goodness, do we need fun! So, this year, we’re back!

Get ready to optimise your life

Our theme for this year is all about optimisation. How can we optimise our life, and our business? You will walk away inspired, focused and with some practical takeaways that will see you with more opportunities in the future.

You’ll also have a stack of new business friends and a renewed energy to keep you moving forward in your business.

Introducing your hosts

Emma McQueen

My favourite words are “value yourself and others will value you” and “you’ve got this”. I think women can have whatever it is their heart desires, and maybe a little strategy thrown in doesn’t go astray, right?

Having a background in human resources and my work coaching individuals to tap into their potential and level up in their performance has helped me see that I want to work with women – women who inspire me. I want to help them achieve more in their lives, whether that is more confidence, more revenue, more profit, a bigger role or even better balance.

Nicole Vine

Nicole is a personal stylist obsessed with helping professionals and business leaders to experience effortless, stylish dressing, allowing them to stand out for all the right reasons.

A former corporate lawyer, Nicole understands a professional person’s style needs like no other and is committed to sharing her insights so that others can enjoy the everyday ease that comes from a style and wardrobe that simply works.

Nicole will also run our “Optimise your Style” workshop on the main stage, where she will showcase the latest looks to help you take the angst out of dressing for work and play.

Farah Mak

The amazing Farah Mak is back after a little hiccup in 2022 which saw her fight Covid and watch us from her sick bed! This year, she is back and ready to go!

You may know Farah Mak best from her role as “Katrina Marshall” on the much loved Aussie TV series “Neighbours”. But Farah is also a presenter, writer and Founder of The Self-Worth Movement; a social enterprise created to educate, inspire, and empower women and girls about self-worth.

Farah is an incredible speaker, emcee and domestic violence advocate.

Still on the fence?

We get it. It’s a whole day out of your business. You may be thinking:

  • I can’t give up a day in my business;
  • Will I get enough out of it to make it worthwhile?
  • Do I deserve a day out of my business?
  • Times are tough. Do I spend this money on myself?
  • Have I worked hard enough to warrant a day out?

I hear it all. From not feeling worthy enough, to feeling that if you pause for a day, oh my goodness, what might happen?

Let me ask you this: what if a day out is just what you need to get your mojo back? What if you meet a few potential clients? What if you meet someone who changes your whole world? What if you meet someone and you change their whole world?

Amazing things happen in a room full of like-minded women. Women who decide enough is enough, who are ready to get out of their comfort zone, connect with others, learn some new things and (most importantly!) have some fun! These are the women who will change their lives, their businesses and their worlds!

Love from our queens

Day with the Queen had everything I expect from an Emma McQueen event - lots of laughter, inspirational speakers, conversations with incredible women, and a good dose of surprise and delight! It was a wonderful reminder of how rewarding it is to step out of your business for a day to connect with others. So worth the time and investment - I'll be back for the next one!

quote mark

What I loved most about Day with the Queen, I loved the energy, the laughter and the connection to other women in business. This is hands down for women in business. I'm five years in myself and I walked away feeling energised and challenged. I spoke to women who were in start-up and 10 or more years in and I think if you have a good vibe and you want to connect and learn (and share) this is for you. See you there!
