Just recently I had the privilege and honour to attend my grandfather’s funeral. This was an historical, amazing experience as my much loved grandfather died at the age of 106! You may ask, what was his secret to a long, healthy life? Granddad led a very active and purpose-driven life and he knew what was important to him. At the age of 99 he flew to Australia to check on me and my family one last time, simply because his family was important. My grandfather lived to see and enjoy five generations!

I am at the stage in my life where I too know what is important to me and I treasure it! My husband, Darryl, and I have been married for 35 years and have two daughters and three beautiful grandchildren. Nothing beats cuddles with our grandkids and spoiling them every chance we get. I also have amazing, different and diverse friends in my life. I treasure these friendships and love how these women inspire, support and strengthen me.

Women’s Lifestyle Expo 2011 is about connecting. It is an event to celebrate women: who we are and what we are able to achieve within our families and community.

One of my passions in life is to connect with women in the community and to see women expand their vision of self, and move towards fulfilling their potential by being exposed to new possibilities. I believe that, while women spend a lot of their time in a nurturing role, caring for family and friends, we also have a strong desire to go beyond the role of nurturer. We yearn to embark on a journey of discovery to find out more about our life purpose. I am passionate about putting together this Women’s Lifestyle Expo that allows women of all ages, cultures and backgrounds to be empowered through various exhibits and workshops along with doing what women do best … connecting and having fun!

This year promises to once again be a huge success and I am excited to welcome special guests Allan and Barbara Pease along with Rachael Bermingham (read about them on page 5).

In 2010 we were overwhelmed by the positive response from the community to the Women’s Lifestyle Expo. The enormous success can be attributed to the diversity of the exhibits and the practical relevance of the workshops to everyday life.

The Expo provides refreshing and exciting opportunities for all who come to have their lives enriched as they embrace the diverse company of women on the Sunshine Coast and affirm who they are, gain knowledge and skills and expand horizons.

Be spoilt and captivated by the wonderful surprises we have for you! Enjoy an array of demonstrations, glamorous fashion parades, more than 120 exhibits and a huge variety of workshops, all designed to meet the needs of women of all ages, cultures and interests. The Expo also promises fabulous prizes, entertainment throughout the day, delicious food and refreshments. Don’t miss out on our Pamper Room! As coordinator of the Women’s Lifestyle Expo I look forward to welcoming you, so come to this year’s Women’s Lifestyle Expo 2011.

One of the key features of the Women’s Lifestyle Expo is the team of volunteers, also known as ‘The Red Team’. They are a team of more than 100 men and women who support and serve in all aspects of the Expo. The Red Team is on the spot to help exhibitors from setting up to packing down. They are present throughout the whole event – providing assistance and direction to attendees, a helping hand to workshop presenters and demonstrators, and support to the entertainers. This team is what sets the Women’s Lifestyle Expo apart from other expos. Over the past two years many have commented on the Red Team’s enormous vitality, hearty smiles and their passion to make the Expo a memorable occasion for all.

I wanted my own business and I knew I had to make it happen. It was now or never.�

Genine Howard



words Jessica Jane Sammut | photography Alan Hughes

Genine Howard, founder of profile magazine, is a woman who couldn’t be more proud of her fellow Sunshine Coast ladies and all that they are achieving, and no one more than Genine knows that a little bit of hard work is all it takes, as Jessica Jane Sammut finds out.


hen you meet Genine Howard, you cannot help but feel the power, the drive, the energy and the determination roaring and revving behind her eyes. Much like a beautiful shiny sleek sports car, Genine is not only a stylish and glossy powerhouse of a woman who stands in the middle of many Sunshine Coast circles, she is also a lady who doesn’t take no for an answer, does not believe in the word ‘can’t’ and is a true advocate of the strength and aptitude of all women. She encourages those she meets to rev their internal 4.2 litre V8 engines as she does, in order to speed into the future on their quest to conquering unknown territory and ruling the world. The founder and group managing director of profile magazine, Genine is a fantastic role model and example of a woman doing it for herself. Born in Victoria, Genine grew up in an environment where children attended the local primary school, went to university at the nearest college and finally bought a house around the corner from their parents. But not Genine. After studying for a bachelor of education with a view to teaching biology at high school, Genine quickly realised that her perception of teaching and perhaps life was not as she thought when she underwent a placement in a school. She found it was not for her, changing course to gain three degrees in biology, geography and environmental studies instead. “When I finished my degrees, I wanted to gain a job with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) but jobs were hard to come by at the time. I applied for every job going in a host of areas but nothing eventuated. So much like the change in my teaching career plan, I set myself a new goal and gave myself the deadline that if I had not secured a position by the end of the year I was going to move to Queensland. I felt it was the land of opportunity for me. However, no one believed I was going to leave. I had never even been away from home, let alone moved away. It was 1997 and it was a radical stance to take.” By the end of the year, Genine had not been able to secure work, and so in true Genine style, she glanced at a map of Queensland,

Sunshine Coast Women’s Lifestyle Expo 2011

chose Port Douglas as her new abode (on the basis that it had no traffic lights), gave away all her belongings, threw a washing basket full of clothes, a giant teddy and a couple of boxes of essentials into her car, and set off ... a nïave 23-year-old with $300 to her name, leaving a sobbing boyfriend standing on the curb in the dust of her wake. “I never looked back,” Genine remembers. “I drove for four days, and by the time I got to Port Douglas I had $50 left in the world. I rocked up at the tourist office bounding in like an overexcited puppy. ‘I’m here!’, I announced to the bemused lady sitting behind the counter. I had no job and nowhere to live, but knew in my bones I was on the right path. It was a pivotal, ground-breaking moment of my life.” Within three days, Genine had secured herself a job and a place to live. She also went onto study how to be a tour guide and, soon after, she was offered a role at a wildlife sanctuary, where she stayed for seven years. “I love animals,” Genine purrs. “I had the best fun ever at the sanctuary. I learnt how to wrestle snakes and cuddle koalas. I was in my element!” With hard work and dedication, Genine was quickly promoted to head tour guide and from there was offered a position in sales, which she loved. After six years at the sanctuary, Genine became marketing and sales manager for the whole centre, and was told one day by her boss that she should spread her wings so that she could fulfill her immense capabilities. Wise words indeed.

My attitude towards life is one of positivity and gratefulness … I hope I inspire women to create their own success.”

“My boss was right,” Genine concurs. “I was about to get what I call ‘concrete on my feet’; I was comfortable and settled, and therefore it was time to shake it up a bit!” In 2004, Genine left her position with the wildlife sanctuary and went to work for CityLife magazine in Cairns, selling advertising space, and it was then that Genine felt something had ‘clicked’. “I absolutely loved this new role. I could wear heels, dress like a girl and enjoy my sales job at the same time. I had found my niche and I was out of khaki ... hooray!” Genine continued to rise to the top as cream does, and was soon general manager of the

magazine, launching the publication in Mackay and Townsville as well as securing its presence in Cairns. Meanwhile, as all this was going on in her work life, Genine was also devoted to her thriving hobby in the theatre and arts in her private life. Having been in a children’s entertainment group for five years when she first arrived in Tropical North Queensland (taking the role of the funny, ditzy character, Fizz, no less), Genine went on to work with a local theatre group, entertaining the corporate sphere, and it was in this way that Genine met the love of her life, Rowan.

After six months of Coast living, Genine suddenly had an epiphany. “I felt the time was right to go out on my own,” Genine states. “I wanted my own business and I knew had to make it happen. It was now or never.”

As I chat to Genine, I can see a pattern is emerging here. Genine is an ‘instinct’ girl. She feels with her heart, she listens to her gut. She believes in the chances she takes and this internal compass guides her in every form, affording her a certain refreshing simplicity in life, in that decisions are made with ease and her inner voice is always with her as a constant trusted advisor.

And in this way profile magazine was born. With a huge amount of hard work and late nights, Genine created the thriving lifestyle magazine that is profile, a magazine that has not only just celebrated its third birthday, but is also going on a walkabout of its own (much like its owner). The magazine’s sister publication is launching in Tropical North Queensland this month and Brisbane later in the year, as well as remaining on the Coast, with two new business partners, Alli Grant, writer and editor with the Genine since day one and a communications professional, and Hamish Rose, a former Prime Radio general manager, coming on board.

When CityLife was bought out in 2007, Genine was transferred to the Sunshine Coast, a move

“It has been a rollercoaster,” Genine grins, her eyes aglow with passion for her creation.

“I was dancing in the show that Rowan was singing in. A year later, Rowan had got rid of his girlfriend and I slipped on into place. Six months after this, we got our first mortgage together.”


she initially rejected due to her happy lifestyle in Cairns, but later accepted as a risk she was willing and ready to take. Within a week of agreeing to the transfer, Genine and Rowan had bought a house on the internet in Buderim and were set to arrive.


“My attitude towards life is one of positivity and gratefulness. I never see a problem, I see a solution. I view my journey as one of opportunity, of risks to be taken, challenges to be overcome and goals to be smashed. Anything is possible for women in today’s age. I hope I inspire women to create their own success.” And that she does. As the main sponsor and supporter of the Women’s Lifestyle Expo, Genine is metaphorically holding the hands of all those women out there working hard, forging ahead and standing tall. “The expo is close to my heart as it is a celebration of business, of success, of lifestyle and of what it is to be a woman. We can have it all. And why not?” Genine Howard is my girl crush. She is a woman with a plan, a pioneer with a dream, a leader with a voice. Where some see boundaries, Genine sees only an invitation, and with Rowan by her side, profile magazine under her wing and her engine in fifth gear, there is nothing surer than the fact that Genine will continue to succeed in all that she sets her mind to. And what could be more inspiring than that?

chamber of commerce business promotion

Rebecca Bain


aloundra Chamber of Commerce president Bob Thompson said becoming a major supporter of the 2011 Women’s Lifestyle Expo was a perfect fit for the Chamber, considering the important role women play in delivering outstanding business and lifestyle outcomes throughout the region.

“Over the last few years we have seen an increasing number of women join the Chamber and become actively involved in the local business community. In general, women bring a different skill set to the table compared to men and that brings a wonderful new dynamic to an organisation.

“Every day across Caloundra I see the role women are playing in making the Sunshine Coast a great place to live, work and play. There is always a strong presence of women leading from the front or driving the engine room. You only have to look at any of the businesses along Bulcock Street, Nicklin Way, the shopping centres or the Markets at Bulcock Street and Kawana to see the positive contribution women play.

“It’s important that we nurture the role of women in the workforce. I am fortunate to work for a large bank which fosters and encourages development in all staff and offers flexible working arrangements to cater for family commitments and to enable women to strike a good work-life balance”.

“The Caloundra Chamber of Commerce feels that is it vital that we encourage women of all ages to strive to be the best they can be. The Lifestyle Expo is a fantastic opportunity to explore and celebrate the role women play in our community. Personally, I hope it is also a catalyst to inspire women to achieve their dreams both personally or professionally,” he said. Events executive for the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce and the manager for Westpac Caloundra Rebecca Bain said the Chamber’s management team and 300-strong membership base is laden with talented women of all ages who are making an important contribution to the success of business on the Sunshine Coast.

Sunshine Coast Women’s Lifestyle Expo 2011

“Being part of the Chamber’s executive committee has enabled me to see first-hand the role that so many women play in local business and allowed me to act as a voice for women, in particular young women in business for the Southern Sunshine Coast region. “The Chamber is a fantastic resource which I encourage members and the wider community to utilise to help them further their business and achieve their goals. We are always looking for new ideas on how we can support our local businesses and are open to any suggestions or feedback on how we can achieve this” Ms Bain said. For more information visit,

words Jessica Jane Sammut | photography Katja Anton

If you think some days are tough at work, try doing Jacquelyn Deane’s job. As the founder of STEMM, Jacqui deals with disadvantaged teenagers each day but wouldn’t have it any other way, as Jessica Jane Sammut finds out.

Jacquelyn Deane


arenting; it is a tricky task. There is no handbook and no qualifying exam. In fact, anyone can have a baby if they are physically able, and this power to procreate is for some the only thing they feel they are good at, as Jacquelyn Deane knows only too well. Raised in a loving family to parents who were always involved in community organisations, Jacqui grew up with a strong social conscience. “Mum was always wanting to help others; often I would get home from school to find an Aboriginal child staying with us. Dad was involved in Rotary, Apex and the Lions. We were a very hands-on family and I had such positive role models in this regard.” As such, Jacqui grew up with the ability and desire to help others and graduated from Kelvin Grove Teacher’s College in 1989 as a secondary business and maths teacher, taking a post at Burnside High School in Nambour. In 1991, Jacqui met her husband and went on to have three very wanted and very cherished children Madelyn, Lachlan and Alexander. And it was when she was pregnant with Alex that she became close to a year-nine student in her maths class who was also pregnant. It was not the first time Jacqui had seen her students become pregnant at such a young age. In fact, once the pregnancies progressed, she often found she never saw those students again as they slipped out of the system, but it was this thought that suddenly angered Jacqui and she felt passionate about doing something to stop it. “It was so sad to me that my pregnancy was celebrated and congratulated while my yearnine student’s pregnancy was condemned and criticised. She didn’t know any better and life wasn’t going to get any easier for her unless something was done. She had no family and her

partner was in year 10; what hope did they have? She wanted to continue with her education but she couldn’t, it was too hard.” In 2006, soon after Alexander was born, Jacquelyn set about getting her campaign underway. “It was not easy. I approached numerous educational facilities who knocked me back, again and again. They did not want to be associated with teenage pregnancies. Finally, the principal at Beerwah High School agreed. I mentored a young mothers program out of a shed attached to the school. At first, it was great. However, it soon became clear we didn’t have any resources or rooms in which to teach. We needed to teach properly, so the search began again for something more substantial.” In March 2008, the Burnside principal Kerri Dunn offered to help the group, agreeing it could operate from the school. Supporting Teenagers with Education, Mothering and Mentoring (STEMM) was born, a multi-awardwinning program supporting pregnant girls and young mothers in a safe, non-judgemental environment. “It is so sad for some of these young women,” Jacqui explains. “Many of them choose to get pregnant because they crave love. For them it is a legitimate role they can play in society, when they been told in their childhoods they will amount to nothing. Many of these kids have suffered abuse and domestic violence in their past also; the stories I hear are heart-wrenching. STEMM helps break this cycle through caring and education. “The trend is that girls disengage from school in approximately year nine, and they become lost – feeling they have no place in the world. They then make a choice to become pregnant. STEMM is working to prevent the trend and

reduce the impact of the trend via its dual mothering and educational role. I aim to provide a family environment which some of these young women have never encountered. Where can you learn to be a mum if you have had no such positive role model in your life? I wanted to give the girls a safe place to go where they are surrounded by people who have a desire to help them. By educating a mother, you educate a family. We have 45 girls currently being educated and nurtured with us. “I do it not just for the mums, but also for the babies. By empowering these young mums you are not only improving their lives but also their children’s lives.” Jacqui has brought a tear to my eye in her compassion for these teenage mums and their babies. As a mother myself, I cannot imagine what these young women have gone through and will go through again as new mothers, raging against the world with their defences built high. With Jacqui having been invited to go to Canberra to sit on the consultation panel regarding what these programs need to look like and how best to help our teenagers, she is certainly having an impact, and one with so many ramifications. The woman in front of me who radiates a maternal warmth that even I can sense, is changing the course of lives, of generations of lives. From a teacher, she has gone that one step further to reaching out of the mainstream and across to those on the fringes; a rescue operation of sorts. Jacqui is creating the handbook of parenting that doesn’t exist – and what does it say? Love and education. Pick up a profile magazine to read the full story or read online at

Women’s Lifestyle Expo



Last year’s Expo was just amazing, drawing in huge numbers and giving back to the community of the Sunshine Coast. This year’s expo will be no different – in fact, predictions are that is will be the biggest yet. But don’t take our word for it … here are some testimonials from last year’s exhibitors. Events play a major role in the success of my business. Last year the Women’s Lifestyle Expo exceeded the expectations of all who attended. Until now I have never had the pleasure of working with such a professional and supportive group. Last year I managed to connect with new wholesale and retail customers who are now fundamental to the MiMi FiRST brand. This year we will be working together to bring you new and exciting demonstrations over this two day event.” Simone Leete – designer / director MiMi First On behalf of Noosa Springs we would like to congratulate you and your team on hosting a wonderful Woman’s Lifestyle Expo! It was such a funfilled day and showcased the many wonderful products and services we have right here on the Sunshine Coast. We were extremely impressed by the professionalism of your team. The day ran so smoothly. The exposure for our services at Noosa Springs was fantastic we will undoubtedly be involved with the Expo again next year and in the years to come.” Emma O’Reilly – marketing manager, Noosa Springs STEMM was able to showcase the beautiful arts and crafts made by the girls and raise valuable funds for the program. It also enabled our staff and students to promote our program … due to the Expo we were able to make some very beneficial contacts with other organisations and we have received visits, resources and support from these organisations.” Jacqui Deane – coordinator STEMM (Supporting Teenagers with Education, Mothering and Mentoring)
