Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019 6:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. at the JENNY BIRD studio
In 2019 there is more Millie Speaks to love! We will hold three talks throughout the year, offering attendees the chance to connect with a smaller group of 30+ women at intimate 'salon style' events in unique Toronto venues. Each talk will be spontaneous and spirited, exploring ideas around living your authentic life, fostering global consciousness, making a difference in the world and more!
Millie founder Chelsea Brown will sit down with fearlessly inventive jewelry designer, arbiter of style, world traveller, cultural observer and natural creative with formidable business savvy, Jenny Bird. Taking place at the JENNY BIRD studio, this evening will feature an hour-long talk + audience Q&A, cuisine and cocktails, gifts from Millie and our amazing sponsors, laughter, inspiration, passionate discussion and, of course, attendees will be able to shop the latest Jenny Bird collection!
An evening with Jenny Bird!
We are so excited to sit down with acclaimed jewelry designer Jenny Bird. Jenny combines inventiveness, intuition, imagination and a finely-tuned business sense to drive the explosive growth of her eponymous label, which is a favourite of forward-thinking and free-spirited women and stylists across the globe.
What shines through is Jenny’s creative drive, talent and vision. Her ability to integrate global consciousness into a successful, profitable business. And her brand’s focus on causes geared towards economic empowerment and creating opportunities for long-term self reliance through meaningful work.
We can’t wait to see you there!
Jenny will talk to us about creative drive, inspiration, building your dream life, setting up an all-female leadership team at Jenny Bird, entrepreneurship and intuition, conscious leadership and so much more!
And the icing on the cake? The event will take place at the JENNY BIRD studio – where all the magic happens! We will have delicious cuisine and cocktails and a fun warm-up before the talk (to be announced!). Guests will also receive a cotton Millie tote crafted by female artisans in Afghanistan, containing a custom gift from Sitti Soap made by female artisans in Jordan. These social enterprises are providing women (many of whom are refugees) with the tools to learn and master new crafts and skills, supporting and facilitating female artisan entrepreneurship!
Get ready for a night that will ignite your passion projects – and your life!

Millie Speaks brings women together to share their experiences, believing in the power of personal stories to foster connection and transform lives. Last year, we held one large conference, with 20+ presenters and panelists. Everybody walked away inspired and so many friendships were formed, but we kept getting the same piece of feedback – "I wish we had more time with her (and her, and her!!)" So we changed how Millie Speaks is delivered in 2019: Three evenings throughout the year, one speaker, one moderator (Chelsea) and a smaller, more intimate audience (30+) in a unique setting. Our first Millie Speaks of 2019, featuring Sangita Patel, was off the charts amazing and we know our upcoming night with Jenny will be too! We hope to see you there!
Last year's first Millie Speaks Talk, was a big success. More than 100 women gathered for this memorable day to celebrate authenticity and vulnerability. It was a day of self-discovery and connection-building where women could be 100% themselves and have a lot of fun!
