Through this platform, she not only presents the latest style trends for her audience, but also lifestyle tips covering etiquette, morals and ethics and gentlemanship. Seemingly through her Grandfather’s fighting spirit outside of the ring, where he mentored disadvantaged youths, Louise is doing much the same with her compassionate focus on men in need of direction to succeed in life. "For 12 years now, MenStylePower has been one of the only Australian men's lifestyle platforms published by a woman," said the hard-working mother of one. "And it was during this time, I noticed an urgent need to provide the sons, lads and dads of this great nation with a different vehicle for change aesthetically and purposefully”. Edmonds reveals with the high rates of suicide, depression, anxiety and fatherlessness, the opportunity occurred to collaborate at a men’s event in November 2019 named, Manifest AUS. “We opened the discussion on “Redefining Masculinity in the 21st Century and it was life-changing. With the main reasons for our high suicide rates being a relationship break-down, finance issues and job loss, we need to act now to bring these key teachings to our young men. Edmonds is a female voice for the empowerment of men yet she’s not unfamiliar with misfortunes, being a survivor of child sex abuse, assault and domestic violence, Louise is well apt to speak on the current #metoo movement and not ostracize the discussion from good men. “The future is male and female, and we need each other, healthy and whole”. Young Men of Manners is currently seeking investment to take the entire project online as a video academy for Australian millennials. About Louise Edmonds experienced success early on with MenStylePower by writing for top-ranked US-based designer fashion companies such as Nautica and Barneys New York and became an in-demand men’s fashion writer. She writes for FashionBeans UK, Brands Exclusive, Sydney Morning Herald’s Executive Style, and CEO Magazine. About Tommy Burns Her late grandfather Tommy Burns (born Geoffrey Murphy in 1922 in Mullumbimby, NSW) was Australian welterweight champion in the 1940s. After his fight career he became a movie star, newspaper columnist, and a security guard for Frank Sinatra, and established a boxing gym in Sydney teaching disadvantaged boys in boxing skills and good manners, for Burns prided himself on that aspect of life.

According to one recent study*, in Australia the estimated market demand for puppies, was  400,000 puppies per year, a but almost all of them don’t come from registered breeders. For example, in 2018, only a little over 69,000 of those  puppies were recorded as coming from registered dog breeders. This means the remainder of puppies to reach this demand result from either unintentional breeding (accidents) or by unregistered breeders. This is where DogzOnline come in.  The demand for puppies and in particular purebred puppies sky rocketed during Covid, with reports of pure breed puppies costing $10,000, $15,000 or even more! So it’s never been more important for pet owners to get the right advice on where to find that perfect purebred pup. DogzOnline is a pure breed dog community created in 1998 for the sole purpose of promoting the pure-bred pedigree dog. You won't find any cavoodle, spoodle, labradoodle, puggle, spanador, pugalier or other designer dog puppies here. DogzOnline not only has puppy listings, it provides a community for purebred owners containing breeder listings, dog pedigrees, classifieds, forums, pointscore competitions and more! After you have welcomed your new dog into your home the DogzOnline events page features info for upcoming dog shows, dog owner meets, and competitions. If you are still unsure about entering into competitions you can read up on all you need to know about different dog breeds on the DogzOnline Dog Breed Index, which  provides resources for the breeds recognised in Australia by the Australian National Kennel Club. Once you’ve got your bundle of joy home of course, there is so much to do (and so much to buy!) for your new pet. DogzOnline is therefore collaborating with, Australia’s oldest, largest and most awarded online pet health products retailer. has been proudly serving Australian pet owners since 1999.

Unlike diesel and petrol automobiles, electric vehicles do not cause harm to the environment. If you are someone aiming to achieve the level of zero toxic emissions, this is definitely the car for you. Most renowned automobile makers strive to come up with cars which produce relatively less carbon footprint on our environment. This is why you will often see the electronic versions of your liked fuel-powered cars hitting the road more often.

Tesla has been a great example of such cars. Tesla Model X achieved a perfect safety score making people more confident in their decision of buying top cash for car Sydney. Let’s not forget that you can completely eliminate the chances of fir mishaps because no petrol goes into an electronic vehicle. Are EVs Cheaper To Maintain? Electronic Vehicles require less maintenance than fuel-powered vehicles. Since electronic vehicles have less moving components, they are less likely to go for frequent repairs. You must consider buying an electronic vehicle if the cost of maintenance is your concern. You will not have to shell out an obscene amount of money to get your car repaired. However, make sure that you keep a check on the wear and tear of brakes. The battery replacement is also something to be taken care of.

PHOENIX DELIVERS SEVEN SISTERS FESTIVAL, VIRTUAL FESTIVAL 2020 2021-02-02T06:06:45Z phoenix-delivers-seven-sisters-festival-virtual-festival-2020 The Seven Sisters Festival is an annual women’s festival, usually run in-person for 7 consecutive days. The Festival brings together like-minded women from around the country for workshops, inspiring presentations, interactive activities, and a large marketplace where attendees can purchase different festival offerings.   This year, due to COVID-19 the festival was not able to run physically. The Seven Sisters Founder and her team still wanted to create an inspiring and life-changing experience for their audience but did not have expertise in running virtual events. This is where Phoenix came in…   The Brief The Seven Sisters Team engaged Phoenix Creative Management to manage all the logistics, speaker communications and training, technical/ AV requirements, virtual platform management and on-the-day support for the very first virtual Seven Sisters Festival.   Many of the Festival speakers had never attended or presented at a virtual event and so a key requirement from the Seven Sisters Team was detailed briefings, technical rehearsals, and dedicated Stage Managers to assist with each session.   With just three weeks until the Festival was due to take place, they wanted an expert team who could hit the ground running.   The Solution The Phoenix team developed and executed an extensive plan to ensure the success of the Seven Sisters Festival. This included: Creating platform links for each Virtual Stage. Management of the Virtual Event Platform – Zoom. Developing technical run sheets. Hosting individual and group speaker briefings/ technical rehearsals. Securing and managing Virtual Stage Managers. Collecting, collating, and managing all Speaker Assets including videos and presentation slides. Regular WIP meetings with the Seven Sisters Team. Development of a Sponsorship Prospectus. Sponsorship recruitment drive. Management of 10 Virtual Stage Managers. Management of pre-recorded speaker content. Recording each virtual presentation for post-event use. Development of Audience Technical FAQ documents. Managing all technical questions both live in sessions and through the dedicated tech email address. On-the-day logistical support and management of each of the virtual stages by a dedicated Stage Manager. Risk analysis on all potential issues. Post-event debrief meeting with brainstorming for future events.   The Results 3 days, 5 virtual stages, 70+ speakers and over 500 virtual attendees.   Phoenix was thrilled to work with the Seven Sisters team on this inspiring, interactive, and thought-provoking Festival. From virtual dance classes to interactive workshops and live music, the Festival provided the audience with a diverse range of content. The response was overwhelming with many members of the audience never having attended a virtual event before, particularly one of this scale and duration.   Both in the lead up to the event and over the live 3 days, the Phoenix Team worked tirelessly to ensure the seamless delivery of the Festival. With 5 concurrent virtual stages running back-to-back sessions for over 15 hours each day, this Festival was an online event like no other!   The Seven Sisters Team were thrilled with the outcome of their first virtual event and received extensive positive feedback from both the speakers and the audience.   Client Testimonial The impacts of Covid meant my live 3000+ attendee multi-day Festival had to pivot to survive. Looking to transition online, I discovered Phoenix Creative Management who had already successfully transitioned to hosting events in the online space.   Their experienced team took on the challenge of managing our 70+ presenters, multiple zoom rooms, various logistics, timetables and execution resulting in a successful event. Their support and experience removed a lot of stress of my shoulders and provided an opportunity for our event and community to survive. Window Blinds, Awnings and Shutters – a modern standard of Home Improvement 2021-02-01T02:52:30Z window-blinds-awnings-and-shutters-a-modern-standard-of-home-improvement   Watson Blinds is the still the only window furnishing company with a local factory. We strive constantly for perfection and are always on the lookout for ways to better serve Canberra homeowners. We offer an extensive selection of window treatments in unique styles. Their beauty, craftsmanship, practicality, and durability will never date, meaning that we can help you find a classic yet contemporary window solution no matter what your taste and budget. Plantation Shutters Plantation Shutters are now more popular in Australia than ever before. Homeowners throughout the nation are recognising their potential as a long-term investment option and a classy substitute for conventional blinds and curtains. Plantation shutters are characterized by their tilted wooden louvres, similar to the horizontal slats on blinds. Unlike blinds, shutters are installed directly into the frame of the window, and can therefore be opened outwards like a doorway instead of rolled up or down using a cord. One of the defining features of Plantation shutters is the size of their slats. Each slat is large, meaning that there are fewer slats per Shutter. This is fantastic for multiple reasons - for one, it allows for a great deal of light to pass through when the Shutters are open, while also allowing optimum air circulation to regulate the temperature of your home. When they're closed, however, they do a superb job of blocking out light (without irritating bleedage) and preserving your privacy.    Awning Our range of awnings provide a cost-effective remedy to the eye-watering electricity bills you might have become accustomed to while trying to cool your home in summer. An Awning is a secondary covering attached to the outside wall of a structure. The weather should never decide when you're able to have a family get-together, so it's a great way to maximise the amount of time you can spend in your outdoor spaces throughout the year. Usually, an Awning consists of a taut panel of polyester fabric stretched across a steel or aluminium frame, although with some awnings you can make do with the existing structure of your home. Either way, you'll be able to enjoy added protection from the elements including sun, wind, and hail - always a great investment when living in Australia. Our Awnings are custom-made right here in Australia, meaning that you have a guarantee of their quality and their ability to withstand the harsh Aussie climate. They're ideal for anything from patios and balconies to commercial spaces such as restaurants and cafe exteriors. When it comes to deciding on the ideal home improvement, Awnings are definitely worth considering. Fortunately, all of our Awnings are available in a range of colours and durable polyester fabrics, and can be operated either by hand or with a motorised system for easy retraction. Let us help you enjoy your outdoor spaces the way you deserve to!   Outdoor blinds Outdoor blinds might not be at top of your list of priorities when deciding on a window treatment for your home, and that's okay. It's useful, however, to remember that they can be a fantastic way to increase the comfort factor of your living spaces, both indoors and outdoors! Looking to spent a bit more time on your deck or in your sunroom this year? Outdoor Blinds can help by blocking annoying glare while preserving your privacy. Once installed, they'll also help to protect the flooring, carpet, and interior furnishings of your home by cutting out harsh UV rays to stop fading and discolouration in the long-term. So, if you're looking for a custom-made solution to help protect your family from the harsh sun during hot Aussie summers and guard your assets against extreme weather damage the rest of the year, look no further.
