This forum and expo is an initiative by Knox City Council, Maroondah City Council and Yarra Ranges Council to deliver three functions within the three Council areas.

Jessica Gilchrist is the Managing Director at Pink Boots Hire. Jess’s background is in event management. She was the Director and professional Chocolate guide for Chocoholic Tours and her work at Atlantic Group was all about combining style and taste, bringing the finest food, beverage and presentation to boutique parties and other exclusive events.
As Jess gained experience within the events field, she started to develop a fondness for the smaller scale, this was the driving force behind her first company, High Style Events.
In December 2016 Jess decided to swap chocolate for tradie boots. From glamorous events and tourism to operating heavy access machinery. Why? Jess wanted to dive into the social enterprise area of business. Pink Boots Hire is a family operated business providing a service for scissors lifts, all terrains, cherry pickers and knuckle booms.
