“BREAKING BADLY”

WITH GUEST SPEAKER: GEORGIE DENT

HOSTED BY:

We’d love you to join us this September at our Brisbane Smart Networking Night, hosted by our valued supporter – Vincents.

Our popular Smart Networking evenings are a great opportunity for professional women to not only network and make valuable connections, but to relax and unwind in a beautiful venue surrounded by like-minded people.

Enjoy a glass of wine and a few delicious nibbles, strike up meaningful conversations with other members of the community, and experience the sense of belonging that comes from being in an environment full of women on your wavelength.

About Our Guest Speaker: Georgie Dent

A former lawyer, Georgie Dent is a journalist, an editor, and a passionate advocate for gender equality. She is a regular media commentator, public speaker, MC and is the contributing editor of Women’s Agenda. Breaking Badly is her first book.

At 24, life was good for Georgie Dent. After graduating with top marks she landed her dream job at a prestigious Sydney law form and moved in with a boyfriend she adored. She had the world at her feet, and no obvious reason to break. But she did. Badly.

Within a year Georgie was unemployed, back living with her parents and suffering such crippling anxiety that she ended up in a psychiatric hospital.

‘Funny, shocking, beautifully written … an account of one woman’s hand-to-hand combat with her own mind. Fascinating.’ – ANNABEL CRABB

Breaking Badly is Georgie’s story of a nervous breakdown in slow motion. It sheds stark light on just how easily anyone, at any stratum in society, can come undone by anxiety and the extreme pressures we put on ourselves for success – at work, in studies, in relationships, and in life.

Now the contributing editor of popular website Women’s Agenda, Georgie sets a fine example for her three daughters by maintaining perspective and by speaking up for gender equality. Not one to shy away from writing about weighty issues, in Breaking Badly Georgie keeps nothing back when revealing the all-encompassing anxiety, shame and fear that brought her to the brink – and how she fought her way back.

We are delighted to partner with Vincents once again for this Smart Networking Night.
