QSuper & DCC Women in Business Network Present: Overcoming Career Limiting...
Thu. 6 April 2017, 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm AEST
It’s no secret that all of us experience self-doubt sometimes, no matter how confident we are. Whilst a number of factors contribute to this and overcoming career limiting thoughts isn’t easy, it is the fastest path to success. This applies whether you are aiming high in the workplace, or creating a business of your own.
We invite you to hear from Cassandra Heilbronn and Gemma Lloyd, who will share their personal stories of building up resilience and confidence to enable them to become successful in their respective fields; law and entrepreneurship. Join us for lunch, some inspiration from our speakers and an opportunity to network with like-minded women!
