NOVEMBER 9, 10 & 11, 2017




THE BIG BOLD EVENT has one very clear mission – to completely transform your mindset and your business within 3 days amongst a community of aspirational, purpose-driven entrepreneurs and business owners.

If you have a desire deep within you to make the world a better place and to be an inspiring role model for leading with integrity and excellence then you are in the right place.

We will teach you the most innovative methods for:

  • Unleashing your leadership potential

  • Creating financial abundance

  • Navigating fear and taking courageous action

  • Mastering the next stage of business growth, and

  • Living life on your terms

It’s our mission to empower you to live boldly and play a much bigger game in business so that you can have the impact and lifestyle you desire.

The world needs what you have to offer. The world needs you to step up NOW. It’s time to BE BOLD. PLAY BIGGER.®

You went into business because you wanted to make a difference in the world - you wanted more freedom, more meaning and more money yet you now find yourself working harder than ever, feeling trapped and not seeing the kind of results you’d like to in your bank account.

It’s frustrating because you know you could do so much more but you lack a clear roadmap to get you there. You don’t know exactly where to start and you’re not sure where to focus your best efforts. It’s tough when you’re trying to figure it all out by yourself and it’s a lot easier when you can lean into somebody who’s already walked the path before you and knows the best route to getting you there quicker.

The truth is many people dream of success but few are willing to do what it takes to get there. It takes boldness and courage to turn your own passion for helping others into a profitable business. This is what THE BIG BOLD EVENT is all about. It’s about giving yourself permission to be wildly successful beyond what you have previously thought possible.

A business can only grow by the amount a business leader is willing to grow themself...

– Vanessa Shaw





Be willing to do what others won't in order to live a life others can't...

– Vanessa Shaw

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.

– Henry David Thoreau

Are any of these statements true for you?

  • You’re working much longer hours than you want to and earning a lot less income than you could be?

  • You often feel overwhelmed and frustrated by your business - but just can’t seem to “fix” it?

  • You want to reach a lot more people but you’re starting to feel burned out by what’s already on your plate?

  • You’ve got a big vision and ambitious goals but lack a focussed plan to get you into the right action?

  • You hate to admit it, but the passion you had when you first went into business is starting to fade…

… And yet you know deep down inside that with the right guidance and clear action steps you could re-ignite your passion and make a much bigger difference with your business.

If you answered “yes” to one or more of these statements, then I strongly encourage you to join me at THE BIG BOLD EVENT.

BIG BOLD EVENT Testimonials

  • “I loved Vanessa’s course. It inspired me to radically change my business model from one-to-one coaching to group coaching. It’s working brilliantly! I love working one-to-one but if I wanted to grow my business, there would always be a limit if I exchanged time for money. By focussing on how I can deliver excellent content to lots of people, I am coming up with ingenious ways of delivery – and last month, created a course where over 90 people joined in one day. The power of the group to help and support each other is incredible. Seeing other people facing similar challenges allows my clients to realise they are not alone and not ‘crazy’. We are building a brilliant, supportive, honest and kind tribe that are championing each other. It’s everything I wanted my business to be.”
    Suzy Greaves, author of Making The Big Leap, ‘top ten guru to change your life around’ (Daily Mail)
  • “I learned to define my niche and ideal client, making my marketing and sales so much easier and in less than 3 months and being brand new in business, I generated over $20,000 in income which is far more than I expected. I already have a busy coaching practice, and design and deliver workshops and seminars.”
    Natalie Wilkins,
  • “As an entrepreneur who is very passionate about helping our clients and team members solve serious business problems I often find myself getting into the weeds juggling dozens of tasks every day. Working with Vanessa has made me understand the importance of prioritizing and focusing on what’s really important. As a result, we’ve moved into new office space, opened a European office, expanded the team and doubled our income in far shorter time than anyone expected. Now we’re at 7 figures, we’re already strategizing to double it again! I am beyond excited for 2013 and with Vanessa’s guidance and my amazing team and clients I am confident we will exceed our business goals. Thanks Vanessa for all that you do!”
    Jay Feitlinger, Founder & CEO, StringCan Interactive,
  • “Before coaching with Vanessa, I struggled with raising my rates and charging what I was worth. She was not only able to access the mindset blocks that held me back, but she also provided practical ideas to move my quickly into my higher rates. I’m now charging 300% more for many of my programs and I no longer struggle with the value I deliver. If you need help building your business and growing revenues, I highly recommend Vanessa!”
    Jason Hartnov,
  • “Since I have been working with Vanessa my business has improved in so many ways. Vanessa has helped me to be more organized in my daily routine and in my mindset. Vanessa has given me direction, support and encouragement. She has helped to create easy to follow systems in my business that have helped me to attract more clients. My income level has more than doubled in the first 3 months and I could not have done that without her. Moreover, I have a plan for how to continue to grow the business. I would recommend Vanessa Shaw as a Business Coach to anyone who is struggling in their business and hovering over the same income level because they don’t know what to do next. Vanessa is motivating, inspiring and such a lovely lady to work with.”
    Mirella DeBoni, Relationship Counselling Specialist; Business Coach; Published Author;
  • “In less than 3 months of working with Vanessa Shaw, I am amazed at just how much has been achieved for our company. We now have greater clarity on several areas of the business and an ideal client programme has been implemented. Also we have improved communication within the team, far more effective use of time on income-producing activities and dramatically increased levels of referrals. This has been the most profitable period that we’ve had in our business year to date and one that has happened during a shocking economy. The growth to our bottom line business has been 30%.”
    David Cooper, Director, Fund Advisers Europe,
