Zi Mei Events was established in 2008 as a provider of quality, evidence-based professional development workshops for allied health professionals.
The business name – Zi Mei Events was created by Leisha Ward (an Occupational Therapist) and her sister while traveling together through China. During their trip they made small forays into the Chinese vocabulary, including the Chinese for older sister – “Zi Zi” and younger sister – “Mei Mei”. Thus colloquially when introducing themselves together as older and younger sister – “Zi Mei”. It was thought to be an apt name for their new venture! Although Leisha’s sister has decided to explore other adventures—the name continues.
Back to F2F workshops !!!
Although COVID-19 is still with us, we have been able to implement some COVID-safe practices and therefore develop a “new normal” for scheduling face-to-face workshops. It has been very exciting to have presenters and participants be able to travel (and cross state borders) to attend workshops. It has been so lovely to be able to interact and network with others, it has also been great to be able to present workshops that are needing a face-to-face format. Moving forward, Zi Mei Events will continue to offer a mixture of face-to-face and online workshops; depending on the workshop content and parameters (ie not all workshops are able to be presented in an online format).

Zi Mei Events is committed to provide high quality professional development, opportunities for participants. Please be advised that where workshops have been advertised/scheduled for a face to face presentation that there is no ability to link to the workshop via an online format or to record the workshop. Workshop presentation format is done in consultation with the presenter and due to either the content and/or multi-day format of the workshop, it has been decided that a face to face presentation is the best option for that particular workshop to proceed. If the workshop is unable to proceed on the advertised dates, it would likely to be postponed/ rescheduled and participants will have the option to move their registration to the new dates or receive a refund. It will not convert to an online even
