If you’ve been feeling like you’ve been in a winter and you’ve had a hard couple of years, I get it.

Winters can be productive and nurturing happens in the retreating. In the bleakness of winter is where the miracles happen in the roots, under the earth, in the depths of the ground.

Maybe some healing has happened, maybe some changes in your business, maybe it’s been a season of grafting in your business, putting in the hard yards. Maybe even a change in your whole life.

God knows and He has been with you.

He’s now calling you out to emerge out of that winter season and into the spring. Both spiritually and physically.

God has placed this years annual conference in spring time for a reason. It’s relevant and it’s got powerful meaning.

You’re invited to join us in the relevant moment in time as God shifts throughout the kingdom business world.

I can’t wait to see what He does.

What is the CWIB Annual Conference?

The CWIB Annual Conference is a conference designed for Christian women who run/own/are in business that’s ran over two days (usually on the weekend).

It’s a space for us to unite together and celebrate, to encourage each other.

To be inspired by different women out there in the business space who can share their amazing knowledge & stories.

It’s a safe space where we invite God to meet each and every woman where she is at and fill her soul with His love and grace.

This is like no other business conference out there and every year week look forward to creating a space where women can come, retire their brave faces and talk about real things and be there for one and other.


We have to pay the conference centre in instalments throughout the year that’s why we can’t offer refunds.
We can pass tickets on to others or you can We don’t offer refunds for our virtual tickets as we also have to pay our Virtual Platform provider instalments throughout the year. 
You can try to sell your ticket or pass it on as a gift but we will need to know the name of the new person.

No it’s not it’s for everyone! A lot of our members come because they love to opportunity to catch up with other members and meet them face to face, as well as the value and calibre of speakers and what each of them bring.

Yes! We will have virtual sofa’s at the back of the room where in each break there will be a lady waiting to pray with you.

No, literally anyone is welcome to join conference – those who know Jesus and those who don’t.

Nope, we encourage any woman who is thinking about starting a business or those who have been in business for twenty years! You will be in a room full of the wisdom of those in business that you can ask questions and be inspired.

It’s for women who…
Want to come for a weekend of restoration in Jesus. For those who want to re-coupe, recharge, and spend some time with God to work on their businesses or their dreams.
It’s for those who want to expand their faith and be encouraged to think out of the box and deepen their relationship with God.
It’s for those who want to get around other women so they can learn and make forever friends with.
It’s for those who want to learn about marketing and leadership. If you’re thinking it’s time to expand your business/team and bring on extra staff or even your first team member. You can learn from those who have gone before you.
It’s for those who give and need some time to receive and be filled up.
…and it’s for the woman out there who has dreams that are bigger than herself.
So if you’re a Christian woman in business or planning on being one, we’d love to invite you to join a weekend like no other…

Hear from real women who have gone before you

Kelly Wood

You all worked so hard to make it such a beautiful and life-changing event. Something I will never forget. I love this community with all my heart.

Jen Lackersteen

What a weekend! I learned more about myself, my strengths and weaknesses, and what to let go of in my business to be more successful. It can be so hard in the busyness of life to stop and make time to allow God to speak to you. Having that time during the conference was priceless. I’m sure I’ll see results in all aspects of my life in the coming days and months.

Karen Maurer

This weekend away was perfect in every way. This was my first time meeting anyone in person with CWIB, but amazingly it felt like there was an instant connection with people, as if we’d known each other for years.
I felt God honoured us by intentionally taking time out, and he was speaking so tenderly, beautifully and personally. The speakers were amazing, and you could hear their passion to run after God’s own heart, and encouragement for us to do the same.
I love that I found women who ‘get it’ to have a business and a family and other parts of life. I learned lots of strategies to keep moving forward, even when it seems tough, or make a call to a listening ear.
I feel totally blessed and honoured to have been a part of this weekend. I can totally recommend it and would love to come again.
