2019 International Women’s Day Event
This International Women’s Day we celebrate the achievements of our fellow Women of Influence. As we all strive for balance in boardrooms, businesses and senior management positions we also recognise those who have bravely succeeded. These ladies have stepped up, leaned in and moved away from their comfort zone to the challenge zone.
On Thursday 7 March we will hear their stories. Our Keynote speaker Kylie Sprott will introduce the notion that “Fortune Favours the Bold”, she will share her own experience and chat with local Gold Coast businesswomen, Stacy Miller and Tania Meli, who have inspirations stores to tell.
