MELBOURNE, VIC June 18, 2012 –The collaboration of Mum PR and Katrina Higham Consulting are excited to announce their role as conference managers for the inaugural Proud to Be Me event being held across Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in late 2012.


The event, the first of its kind in Australia, will be a celebration of women, focusing on promoting self-acceptance and positive body image.


“My vision for Proud to Be Me is to inspire and celebrate all women, no matter their age, their size, their backgrounds or their lifestyle choices.
