Meet and Network with Like-Minded Entrepreneurs


TOPIC: Take Off Your Mask, Go Inside And Ignite Your Story

This talk will inspire you to uncover your stories and give you tools to find the courage to share them. Your stories are the threads that when woven together form the fabric of your life with its imperfections, patterns, pains and pleasure you are stronger because of your stories. They need to be spoken and heard.

We value every story as it reminds us how unique, fascinating, courageous and fragile we all are.

During this talk you will discover 8 tools to owning your story and being able to let go, forgive, love and live a meaningful life that heals your heart and others.

By combining the tools of self-acceptance, trust, openness, being real, having a deep yearning, love, awareness and bravery you will find yourself connecting with yourself and igniting your inner wisdom to tell your story.  

What you can expect to take away:

  • True-life storytelling from beginning to end
  • Connection with one another through shared experiences
  • The gift of telling your story – STORYLAB
  • A desire to share your story and grow from the experience
  • Gratitude for a friendly, warm, intimate, honest and life affirming space.

What People Are Saying About Our Online Networking Events

Michelle Vooght: Inspirational Speaker & Spiritual Healer

The first online networking event was amazing! It is great to connect with other entrepreneurs online and the fact that it was online did not take away AT ALL from the interaction, the community feel and the possible collaborations and connections that were made. Gwen, congratulations on leading the way with networking – it is inspiring and the fact that one doesn’t have to wade through traffic and timelines to still network is what I found invaluable. Thank you so much and I am looking forward to all the other benefits that this community presents to fellow entrepreneurs to assist us to grow our businesses, thank you!

Rose McClement: Founder of Design Monarchy

Thank you Gwen Serrotti. It was such a privilege to be part of such an innovative initiative. I so enjoyed it and loved meeting the new entrepreneurial peeps. The convenience is actually such a big benefit. I was afraid it might feel too ‘distant ‘ and impersonal. But it was anything but that. Plus, your Networking Presentation was invaluable. I’m looking forward to many more.

Theresa Ackerman: Women – The Divine Self

Thank you once again for the opportunity to be part of the online networking event.  It was wonderful to connect with you and some familiar faces from when I attended in Somerset West. I do believe that this online group will go from strength to strength.
