The International Women’s Day Cocktail Reception is a perfect launching pad for our 2017 theme ‘Resilience’. 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.
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 a couple of outstanding women who will share their story about resilience and how they have used these life events to pursue their dreams, achieve success and pay forward in community.
Please join us for a conversation with these dynamic women.
