Aneta speaking 'Creativity' at SmartWomen Perth

🎤 What a delight to be invited to part of the recent SMARTwomen Perth event panel. It was an honour to share a glimpse of my journey with Charcoal and Champagne, all tied into the theme of 'Freedom from Self-sabotage'.

Being all about 'creativity' – I felt it was also the perfect opportunity to surprise our unsuspecting guests by inviting them to ‘let go’ of their inner perfectionists and get a little vulnerable with each other by connecting in a unique and beautiful way where working with the ancient medium of charcoal, they were invited to look at each other and drew each other’s portraits! 👩‍🎨

The moment I announced this activity, the room gasped with nerves and excitement before infectious laughter took over … and with a little gentle guidance to shift the focus off perfection and the need to please each other with the outcome – it was an absolute joy to see people absolutely indulge in having the opportunity to connect in this unique way where they were not only seen, but got to have a really good giggle at the fun masterpieces that resulted.

Think the smiles say it all 🤣 💛

"I found the experience both awkward and enlightening. Witnessing the vulnerability displayed by others during this exercise was an eye-opening moment, highlighting the common thread of human vulnerability" Jessica
"My quirky chin and smiling eyes perfectly captured by Anne in a speed drawing challenge. Loved this exercise" Elena
