Welcome to Hills District Business Mums!

Hills District Business Mums (HDBM) is an award-winning business networking and support group for women who are juggling running a business and raising children.  If you’re a Hills District Mum who runs a business, or you want to start a business, welcome! You’re in the right place.

We are all about learning and networking - here's how you can get involved...

Facebook Group

We meet regularly and have an active Facebook group where mums share ideas, challenges and recommendations. We have a strict policy of no unsolicited business promotion so you can feel supported, not spammed.  There are many opportunities to promote your business differently, and to review, refer and recommend other businesses and business mums.

We meet monthly, alternating between Tuesday mornings and Wednesday evenings.

We always have a topic and keynote speaker, fun networking games to get the conversation flowing, a lucky door prize worth $150 and the chance to win the opportunity to pitch your business to the Group.

Wonderfully supportive

Hills District Business Mums is a wonderfully supportive networking group that combines many of my networking goals – mixing with wonderful people, learning through the great speaker line up, meeting great mutually beneficial referral partners, and giving me the platform to showcase my expertise to aid many small business owners within the group.

The Hills District Business Mums networking events are a must on my calendar, due to the great vibe that I always experience. It’s lovely to meet people going through similar business ups and downs in a relaxed friendly environment.

Highly recommend

I’ve been a part of HDBM since launching my business in September 2014, and I’ve always found the group to be extremely supportive and a fantastic resource! I’m always learning new things – whether it’s via the friendly Facebook group or via the empowering networking events.

After every networking event, I find myself feeling inspired and re-invigorated about my business. All of the women in the room are extremely approachable and relatable – probably because they are all seeking to find the elusive balance between business, motherhood, and life in general, just like me! And the events feature fantastic guest speakers on various business-related topics as well, so I always walk away with a piece (or a whole cake!) of new knowledge.

I highly recommend HDBM for anyone starting a new business, wanting to expand their business, or simply looking for a supportive group of women to help them along their business journey.

Wealth of knowledge

I’ve been a member of HDBM for many years now, and still learn from the wealth of experience and knowledge that is in the group. Everyone is so supportive and happy to see each others’ achievements – one of my closest friends in the group is a fellow florist!

The HDBM events get you out networking with fellow Mums who know what its like to run a business (while changing a nappy, and doing pick ups!) You will make life long friends as well as be in awe at what your fellow Mums have achieved… fantastic ideas, great support… and feel free to grab a Mentor!

You know the group is doing something right when our members include Mayors, Mermaids and Academy Award Winning Writers…not to mention 5000+ Mums!
