The MC and founder

I’m an award-winning entrepreneur, digital educator, SEO and copywriting consultant, coach, speaker, author and podcaster with more than two decades of experience in all things advertising, content and digital.

I’m a misfit on a mission: to help other business humans create their own version of online success.

Why attend?

While most small business owners network before breakfast and hustle 24/7, I believe there’s a different approach.

I’ve created not one but three highly successful businesses without a master plan, rich investors, or input from smarmy sales gurus.

I believe there is a way to be successful on your own terms.
To be your odd, quirky self and still create a business that gives you the life and the lifestyle you want.

So if you’re sick of trying to do ALL THE THINGS, optimising the crap out of everything and wasting money on yet another ‘six-figure-business’ scheme, this is the conference for you.

What you’ll get

LEARN

  • Top quality content from great minds
  • Life changing lessons
  • The latest tips and advice

CONNECT

  •  Meet like minded humans
  • Be inspired and motivated by others
  • Network your little bum off

HAVE FUN

  • Beautiful venue
  • Quirky extras including massages and more
  • Goodies and giveaways

7 WAYS SELL YOUR PRODUCTS (WITHOUT SELLING YOUR SOUL)

Session overview:
Anu Sawhney has tried many tactics to boost sales, but in truth, it’s the less obvious methods that have shaped her business into what it is today.

In her fun practical session, she’ll outline how she failed with influencers, played it safe and fell into the trap of trying to be everywhere. She’ll also explain how one big name gave her earnings an epic boost, the key to clever collaboration and why she refuses to haggle.

She’ll also dig deep into ethical businesses, explaining how to genuinely be ethical and sustainable.

She brings her brightness and sparkle to life and believes, wholeheartedly, that happy people create happy things.

 

Through founding Bidiliia, her own ethical jewellery brand, she found her love for experiential copywriting. She’s a storyteller with an inspiring story and is going places with her newfound love.

Mum to two small humans, Anu lives in Sydney and is originally from India. Oh, and she’s 3.2cms taller than her natural height, thanks to two new hips and a new knee. 

She believes in thinking outside the box and being persistent. But above all she believes that you shouldn’t have to sell your soul to run a business.

2. How to develop a content strategy that is agile and adaptable.
3. Why it’s important to advertise your membership in as many audience touchpoints as possible.

5. Why more lead gens are your secret weapon to engagement and loyalty from your audience (and paying members of your membership).

Don’t be fooled by his cheeky and affable nature, Shan is a creative genius with mad social skills, who turns the ordinary into the extraordinary. Shan has been called ‘The Rainmaker’ by his clients as he helps them turn their businesses into profit-making behemoths.

Feel the love

Rachel
I’ve attended a few of Kate Toon’s events and have never been disappointed. They’re always full of variety and I invariably walk away having learnt a great deal. What I learn is always practical and easily applied to my business. There are constantly oodles of goodies, practical workbooks to use and I never get bored as Kate manages to find great speakers. It’s no wonder I keep coming back for more!

Rachel Amies

Ivy

I appreciate the actionable advice and strategy offered at Kate’s events. Was it worth the money? (And not only that but me being out of commission for two days while I attended?) 100% without reservation I say YES.

The speakers are so relevant that I hated to get up to go to the loo for fear I would miss something. I love the mix of tactical advice without being overwhelming. Also, the speakers who engage at the event are just like me.That means a lot in terms of feeling like you can do the do.

Kate herself is very accessible at the event. I freaking LOVE that she is real and down to earth with fuck-up and foibles like an imperfect human.

The food was great. Fresh, healthy. I liked that we had an hour to recharge and even take our food across the street to the park (sangas are so portable!) At the Mastermind event, food was PLENTIFUL. The coffee cart was MUCH appreciated as was the included drink after the second day. I like the lack of paper and plastic, thank you for not adding to the trash heap. Thank you for the 10-minute massages!!!

Wowsers, Kate sure knows how to put on a cracker of an event.
Great energy, topics small business owners actually care about, hilarious real-life stories and lots of time to mingle and get amongst it.
Wouldn’t miss it.

Zoe

Kate is absolutely incredible when it comes to creating conferences. She always outdoes herself. I loved the variety of speakers, how environmentally friendly the event was, and the accessibility considerations.

I’m a part-time wheelchair user, so accessibility is vital for me to attend any in-person event. I was able to navigate the whole conference with ease. It’s also amazing to see Kate’s commitment to accessibility through offering online tickets. How incredible that people who are unable to attend in person can still experience the awesomeness of Kate’s conferences, and still feel like they’re a part of the action. This is so important for so many disabled people, who may not have the capacity to attend in-person—especially in a pandemic! I also really liked the lanyards that shared if you were open to huge. As an autistic woman, it was nice to not have to mask as much.

The food was also delicious, with vegan options at every meal.

It was just the most amazing atmosphere. I’m an anxious introvert, and even ended up dancing! It goes to show how comfortable Kate and her team makes you feel. Even days later, I’m still buzzing. Thanks Team Toon! Can’t wait to see you all at the next conference.

Louisa
As an SEO copywriter for the creative and construction industries, I’m always keen to connect with like-minded professionals and to keep my skills fresh and relevant. Kate Toon’s fabulous business events and online communities are just the ticket! Packed with value, I come away feeling inspired, refreshed, and ready to take my business up a notch (or two, or three!)

Kate’s events deliver a diverse program of speakers, serious business up-skilling and plenty of opportunities to network. There’s a valuable take-away from every session and something for everyone! Kate has dedicated years to creating dynamic online communities, skill-sharing, and injecting a sense of fun into everything she does. The launch of her Misfit Entrepreneur Conference in 2023 promises to be impressive. Can’t wait!

Bill

Great atmosphere, great speakers, great content, great food and a great time. It’s what I’ve experienced at every CopyCon conference (yes, I’ve been to them all), and the Misfit conference won’t be any different. If you’re serious about achieving success on your own terms, this is an event you can’t afford to miss. See you there.

Tanya
I’ve been to many of Kate’s events – both in person and online – and one thing I always love is the community that she builds. Whether it’s connecting people beforehand, nurturing new and old friendships over cheese, or giving opportunities to learn from people at all stages of their business journey, Kate brings out the best of people.

Be sure to book your tickets early, because Kate’s events are always sell-outs.

“There’s something special about Kate’s events. She manages to create a space that’s welcoming for introverts, extroverts, ambiverts and neurodivergent folks alike. It’s obvious that a huge amount of thought and care goes into making her events incredibly valuable, inspiring, safe and heaps of fun. I love the sense of community and the variety of speakers, topics and activities. Kate is one of a kind and so are her events. Do everything you can to get yourself to one.”

At the Mastermind, a morning tea break, buffet lunch and afternoon tea, and nibbles provided at the speaker dinner.

We’ll be checking in with you nearer the event to confirm any dietary requirements.

How accessible is the venue?

TBC.

Can I bring my baby or child to the event?

Small humans under the age of oneish are welcome to attend the event (must come with a parent, babies turning up solo will be turned away).

We will have a dedicated MINI MISFITS table at the back of the room.

Obviously, if your baby is extra vocal, we ask that you respect other guests and leave the room to chill your small humans out. Sadly we don’t allow larger children at the event as we can’t provide childcare facilities. We do accept childish adults.

Can I bring my service animal to the event?

Yes – the venue is service-animal friendly.

What's the loo situation?

TBC

What do I need to bring with me?

We recommend bringing your laptop if you’re the kind of person who likes to type up notes. Pads and pens, water and mints will be provided. There may also be biscuits and possibly crisps – but I’m not promising anything.

Can I claim the event as a taxable expense?

As this is a training event, it should be a deductible expense. However, we recommend you talk to your accountant about it. We’re words people, not numbers people.

What's the dress code?

There’s no formal dress code, be scruffy, be smart, be yourself.
For the evening do after the conference we are going in fancy dress.
The theme is QUIRKY!

There will be a fabulous prize!

Are there student, government, group, non-profit or concession discounts?

No discounts are available, but we’ve worked hard to keep the prices affordable.
