Date: Thursday, 16 March 2023
Time: 11:45AM – 2:00PM AWST
Venue: QT Perth 133 Murray Street Perth, WA 6000
Please join us for a pause in your day to immerse in the conversation, network with like minded people and enjoy the relaxed vibe of the QT Hotel rooftop bar – roving lunch, DJ and drinks included.
Drawing on the experiences of women who have built successful careers in a male dominated environment, we will explore what action you can take today (whilst the good work continues to achieve greater equality) – positively impacting your role in life and business for the benefit of your success.
Together with our panelists, we will discuss what it means to have a feminine edge and when leaning into that you can step into your power. During this free flow conversation, we will cover topics including:
- Alternative leadership styles that embrace cadence and empathy
- How intuition can be pivotal in effective communication for the benefit of our teams and clients or customers
- How a woman’s ability to do more with less can be leveraged for business and organisations
- The importance of giving help before someone needs it
- Being aware of how our own privileges can diminish someone’s light
- Why having a win-lose mentality is damaging.
Don’t forget to bring along your male allies!
