Event Details

We are super excited to be unveiling a totally different format for this year - Leading Moms Night Out.

Join us on the evening of November 1 in the sumptuous ballroom at Hycroft Mansion for a glass of wine, some nibbles and of course lots of laughs, insights and maybe some misty tears as only Leading Moms can deliver.

Now in our 7th year, we're talking all about the body: not just about the importance of putting yourself first and self care, but also how to have better sex after kids, how to keep your mindset positive as a mom pulled in multiple directions, as well as explore "why mommy drinks" and add even add in a bit of politics too.

Moms, It's Time To Treat Yourself!

One thing we hear from Moms all the time is that they often come last - after kids, spouses, work, family - it’s hard to find time to take care of yourself. But we also know that when moms focus on self-care everyone wins.

The evening will focus on topics like:

  • The Truth About Gender Equity in Healthcare

  • Better Sex Through Mindfulness

  • Making Your Personal Fitness Goals a Priority

  • Lessening your Mental Load

  • And more….

Haven't been to Leading Moms before?

Leading Moms is a place where stories are told, experiences are shared and inspiration is felt by everyone in the room. Similar to TEDx in format, our speakers aren't just talking heads at a podium. Instead, expect heart-warming, though-provoking - and sometimes gut-wrenching - personal stories that will leave you in a state of self-reflection, ready to take on your everyday challenges and maybe even a bit transformed.

Note: Doors open at 6:30. This is an after-dinner event. Light appies & desserts are included in ticket cost.
