The 2018 Annual Great Debate was certainly entertaining and a little controversial

On Thursday 14 June, guests gathered for breakfast in the Convention Lobby at RACV Royal Pines Resort to enjoy another Women of Influence event knowing they will see the familiar and faces of fellow professionals and enjoy an entertaining morning.

This year the topic of The Great Debate – “Whether a child born today will have an equal chance to be a leader of tomorrow” – certainly had our teams deep in strategic planning and working out how to deliver a few surprises.

Our MC and Host, Moyra Major from 102.9 Hot Tomato radio and Major Confident, was hilarious as usual.  Although a large part of the entertainment this time came from the passionate and sometimes heated debates.

Thanks so much to our debaters:

We were missing a few team members of the Women of Influence Committee although Vice President, Jodi Robertson, took the reigns and every member of the Committee worked extra-hard to deliver another fantastic event.  Thanks to each and every one of the Committee!

We were delighted to introduce our new sponsorship partners at this event as follows:


Alfa Romeo Gold Coast Dealer Principal Tania Meli was one of the judges of The Great Debate with the difficult task of selecting the winning team.  We also loved having the beautiful and compact Fiat in the room.



We are very excited to introduce our Video Ninja Alexandra Yves who captured this event – stay tuned to see the edited version!  Alexandra’s business, Pancake Digital, is a new Gold Sponsor and partner of Women of Influence.

As usual, our Gold sponsorship partner and official photographer Annie Noon from FotoForce captured amazing photos of the event.  You can view all photos HERE
