Event description




Tech-formation Women in Tech Conference is an all-day conference, shining the spotlight on female industry leaders and women in tech.

We will be showcasing women who have fought against being the minority - and are building the tech products of the future, or leveraging technology to build global brands and businesses. These women have not only broken through the glass ceiling but have paved the way for other females to do so as well.

Prepare to be inspired, learn, and grow as you spend an entire day connecting with extraordinary females, and hearing the stories of women who are at the forefront of the digital revolution.


Tech professionals, women in industry, intrapreneurs, entrepreneurs, and anyone who deals with, or wants to learn about the future of tech - from e-commerce, apps, and software, to virtual reality, digital publishing and everything in between. If you're an ambitious person who wants to connect and be inspired by extraordinary women doing amazing things, this day is for you.

Men are definitely welcome. Support your partner, sister, or friends. Pay it forward and get a ticket for someone you think needs a hit of inspiration to give them the courage to turn their dreams into reality


Lauren’s fast-paced lifestyle and constant desire to look polished for her job became the catalyst to the conception of Glamazon in 2013. Starting as a salon booking app and pivoting towards peer-to-peer beauty services following a merger in 2016, Glamazon has fast become Australia’s largest real-time booking platform connecting 700 freelance stylists with more then 35,000 customers. Lauren was recently featured on Ten’s Shark Tank, delivering “the most perfect presentation I’ve ever heard,” according to Shark, Steve Baxter, securing $250,000 on the show, followed by closing a Seed Round of $1m.

Teresa Truda, the CEO and Co-Founder of chozun 途赞, the world’s first travel ecosystem powered by AI, data science and underpinned by blockchain and cryptocurrency, is a global rising star. An international award-winning entrepreneur who left her traditional Italian lifestyle and secure Australian corporate life behind in early 2016 to aunc a tech startup in China, Teresa has since raised funding from institutional investors, icked off in 2 cities across China, South-East Asia and Australia and, alongside co-founder Zia Word, become the first women to aunc their own travel and loyalty cryptocurrency in APAC, with an ICO due to be released in June 2018.

Nicole Kersh is the owner of a big, energetic brain. A self-described iconoclast, she recently sold her successful venture ‘4Cabling’ to private investors.
As a natural observer, watching her parents run a small electrical business from home was a dot she later joined in building the first online trade based website in Australia. Teaching herself to code, she filled a gap by using her platform to sell spare electrical products lying around the garage. From there, 4Cabling began.
Being young, feminine, gay, entrepreneurial, curious and successful in a male dominated industry has given Nicole a decade-worth of story. Having to hide so much ‘self’ has been a long, isolating and at times dispiriting journey.
Nicole will tell her story of being a young, gay women, pretending to be an old married man. Learning that authenticity is a true leader.
