About the event

“There is no greater power in the world than the zest of a postmenopausal woman.”

Margaret Mead

As women, we will all go through menopause, yet few of us talk about it.

Menopausal women are now the fastest-growing demographic in the workforce. One in three of the working population will soon be over the age of 50. With both employment rates and the retirement age on the rise, women’s careers are lasting longer than ever before. But despite this, the impact of menopause on our working lives is largely undocumented and painstakingly under-reported in the wider world of work.

Studies have found that knowledge, a positive attitude, and management plans, may improve the quality of post-menopause life. This is why it’s time for us to change how we talk about 'The Change'. (Source: Allbright)

MC: Faith Agugu founder of Silver Sirens

Faith is a Sydney-based Psychotherapist who founded Silver Sirens in 2018 after a number of women in 'midlife crisis' were referred to her. She realised that her cultural lens on ageing differed greatly from those of many of her western sisters and she felt called to change the negative narrative some of these women had internalised about ageing.

Faith creates engaging and uplifting conversations that honour each women's individuality.

Brenda Rogers

Brenda is a passionate spokesperson and advocates for many topics including menopause as a rite of passage and women reclaiming their voice, their kitchens, and their bodies. She uses food as medicine, nutritional & herbal remedies,  naturopathic and yoga philosophy, and skilled life coaching conversations to inspire others to live their lives with feminine power and grace.

In her women’s circles, nutrition events, retreats,  workshops, and leadership coaching sessions, Brenda raises conscious awareness of how lifestyle choices directly impact our health and wellbeing, particularly our emotional stability. In her thorough yet gentle approach, she provides deep, emotional insight as well as practical solutions on how to create our best lives through our lifestyle choices  (nutrition, movement, rest, relaxation, purpose, connection), and our personal presence. Our health is our guide to reaching our true potential.

It was her first-hand experience with an eating disorder as a disempowered teen that was the catalyst to seek an alternative approach to heal herself and others!

Sandy Davies

Long before formulating HappyPause™ Balm and becoming an author, Sandy  Davies was born and raised in the American Midwest in the state of Kansas. Sandy immigrated to Australia in the 1990s to do her master’s degree in social justice at the  University of New South Wales in Sydney as a Rotary Fellow and Ambassador of  Goodwill for Rotary International.

After graduate school, tourism beckoned. Sandy operated an adventure tourism business with her partner on World Heritage Listed Fraser Island for decades.  Later they semi-retired to the tropical idylls of Far North Queensland… or so they thought.

An allergic reaction to treatment for intimate dryness during perimenopause launched Sandy out of semi-retirement. She is now the Queensland-based formulator and founder of the award-winning HappyPause Balm. As a bit of a rebel who struggles to take ‘No’ for an answer, Sandy turned the lack of a simple, preservative-free natural solution for intimate dryness into her mission.

The creation of HappyPause is Sandy’s ‘Yes.’ A tiny pearl of HappyPause puts a spring back in your step. Dryness caused by peri/post menopause,  chemotherapy, radiation, endometriosis, Type 1 Diabetes, endurance training, and other issues should never be a death knell to doing the active things we love, which is why creating HappyPause has brought Sandy so much joy in her second spring. If you’ve stopped swimming, gardening, or doing the things you love, HappyPause will help you return.

In every chapter of her life, Sandy has thrived on giving back as a part of her ethos. In this HappyPause era, Sandy’s Australian Pay It Forward partner is The  Period Project. The Period Project is an arm of the National Homeless Collective coordinated by former Victorian Australian of the Year Donna Stolzenberg. To learn  more about Donna’s tireless work or make a donation to help eradicate period poverty  visit

When not packaging and processing HappyPause orders and heightening menopause awareness, Sandy enjoys writing and spending time with her husband and their rescue dog Karma along the fringing reef. Her book The Power to Rise Above about resilience and teenage bullying will be available in 2023.
