The International Women’s Day Cocktail Reception is a perfect launching pad for our 2018 theme ‘Gratitude’. It will be a year for us to appreciate women from all walks of life who simply - get things done and have used the challenges in life to propel them further into ownership of their own power. These are women with the talent, resilience, courage, agility, energy, commitment and ingenuity to pursue their dreams to succeed. Gratitude is one of the pillars of Resilience and this year, the BUWN will explore how Gratitude strengthens our resolve and contributes to success.

We have some great speakers lined up who will inspire and encourage you to reach for your dreams. Ms Karen Phillips from Corporate Communications and the face and brains behind Early Risers and Women in Business will be conducting an On the Couch interview with our outstanding speakers who will share their story about gratitude and what part it has played in their dreams, success and how they have paid it forward in community.


Karen Phillips has just been announced as Gold Coast Citizen of the Year 2018! Karen is an entrepreneur, best-selling author, media commentator and women’s leadership advocate and dedicated charity supporter having helped raise over $2million for charities.

Having launched her bespoke branding agency at just 28, Karen has worked with some of the world’s most prestigious brands, identities and Heads of State and conducts the long-running women’s network in Australia – Early Risers which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary.
