Mom podcasters Cat & Nat to speak in Sudbury Sept. 16

They’re the guest speakers at the ‘In Full Bloom’ event
Cat & Nat — a.k.a. Catherine Belknap and Natalie Telfer — are coming to Sudbury Sept. 16.

They’re moms, best friends, best-selling authors, podcast hosts and social media queens, and they’re coming to Sudbury Sept. 16.

Cat & Nat — a.k.a. Catherine Belknap and Natalie Telfer — will be delivering a keynote address and doing a Q&A at the intimate event In Full Bloom: A Northern Heart + Home Experience. Tickets are available to the public, in limited quantities.

With seven kids between the two of them, Cat & Nat know just how lonely and isolating motherhood can be. So, they set out on a mission to bring women and moms together by hosting dinner parties and events - with wine and without babies. 

The events garnered huge success in their hometown of Toronto and were talked about all over, leading Cat & Nat to take things to the next level and break into the online world to reach more people and connect women and moms everywhere.

Cat & Nat's rapidly exploding community of like-minded moms tune in every day to watch them rewrite the paradigm of “the perfect mom.” 

With honesty and humor, Cat & Nat dismantle the unrealistic portrayals of motherhood that are often presented throughout social and traditional media. 

Through their virally famous #MOMTRUTHS videos, which have garnered hundreds of millions of views, their Facebook Lives and Instagram stories, their best-selling book, and iHeartRadio award nominated podcast, Cat & Nat share everything moms think but are too afraid to talk about.

In Full Bloom is a one-day event created to inspire, motivate and connect guests from all backgrounds and areas. 

The event will take place in the Ristorante Verdicchio event space, Natura, and will include a multi-course meal with wine pairings, local vendor booths, live music, a DJ, northern speakers as well as the keynote and fireside chat with Cat & Nat.

“As northerners, many of us are used to travelling to Southern Ontario or other destinations to attend events, concerts and experiences,” said Andryanna Gonko, Northern Heart + Home co-founder. 

“Our intention with In Full Bloom is to shine a light on our amazing local businesses, bring in top-tier talent, and create memorable experiences right here, in the North.”

“Cat and Nat are successful entrepreneurs and moms who want to bring a sense of community

to women with lots of laughs thrown in,” said Tara Andrea Lyle, co-founder of Northern Heart + Home, in a press release. 

“Their mission resonates with us and so many in our community, so we decided to create this experience that brings in these aspects and more, for an all-around great night out.”

“We started Northern Heart + Home in 2019 as a way to celebrate the people, places and positives of northern Ontario, and wanted to create unique experiences in the North,” said Lyle.

“Plans were put on hold due to the pandemic so our community has only been online, but now that restrictions have lifted we are thrilled to share our first exclusive in-person experience.”
