Women of Influence is a not for profit organisation; our purpose is to provide a forum for motivated and successful businesswomen to network, learn and connect.

Our events are designed to deliver guests an enjoyable, educational and entertaining experience and provide the opportunity to meet like-minded people.

The organisation was first started as Women in Finance – Gold Coast Chapter in May 2005 – we rebranded as Women of Influence in 2010.

Our guests enjoy a warm and professional environment which is more like a community.   We welcome women (and a few brave men) from a wide range of industries including financial, legal, retail, real estate, beauty, technology, tourism, Government, not for profit and more.  

Women of Influence became an Incorporated Association in April 2011 and is now known as Women of Influence Queensland Inc
