Q&A with Lisa Messenger and Dr Polly McGee

  • Ground Level 483 Riley St Surry Hills, 2010 (map)

Murdoch Books and Collective Hub present an inspirational evening with Collective Hub founder Lisa Messenger, and Dr Polly McGee, entrepreneur, educator, yogi and author of new book The Good Hustle. This Q&A-style event will focus on how to create a happy, healthy business with heart.

When business strategist Polly McGee spent two months in an ashram becoming a yoga teacher, she hoped to learn enough about life and balance to help her stop falling on her asana. She didn’t expect to discover a unique way of combining the spiritual pathway to happiness with the process of creating sustainable heart-centred businesses that so many of her clients had been searching for.

Whether you’re a business owner, extremely career-oriented or just wanting more, these ladies will first-hand show you how to get started, stay on track, and not get derailed by doubt using the ancient wisdom of yoga with contemporary business practices.


– How to stay on track with your business goals

– How to seamlessly blend entrepreneurial action and spirituality

– Tips for how to fully engage in your career and life

– How to set goals and smash them

Who is it for?

– Anyone who’s seeking inspiration and a sense of direction
– Anyone who’s feeling stuck and wants more out of life

What You Will Get

– Collective Hub gift bag
– Light snacks and refreshments
