Welcome to the GCGIB Movement!
Have a look around and you will see exactly why our members love GCGIB so much!


The GCGIB events are empowering, uplifting and connective! I have been to MANY GCGIB events over the years both as an attendee and a guest speaker, and I always see so many women empowering each other, laughing and celebrating themselves and their businesses. This community is heart-felt, supportive and provides a wealth of knowledge for everyone involved. I HIGHLY recommend getting out of your comfort zone, saying YES to an event (especially if you don’t know anyone else going!) and experience the magic of connecting with other businesses, meeting new friends and opening up to the wisdom that’s on offer. 💕

I LOOOOVE GCGIB events! I have been to pretty much all of them over the years, both as a speaker and as a guest, and I would have to say that Asha is one of the best event throwers around. The Gold Coast Girls in Business events are so inclusive, friendly and inviting. It doesn’t matter if you go alone or with a friend, you will always have a ton of friendly people more than happy to get to make you feel included. It’s very supportive community and the connections made are more than just a hand-shake. Even more amazing is that each event includes real value and knowledge so you leave that much richer for the experience, who you met and what you learned. I highly recommend attending these empowering events every time they are happening.

I attended the GGCIB Christmas party at the Henchmen and let me just say “Wow!!”
Asha really knows how to host an event and her dedication to the business really shines through.
Asha truly believed in something and made it happen. Thank you so much for GCGIB.
As a member, I got out of my comfort zone and went alone on the day.
It was such a wonderful day of connecting with so many beautiful people. Sharing our stories, our businesses and just having fun.
Can’t wait to attend another event
