Women's Leadership Symposium
by Women & Leadership Australia
At Darwin Convention Centre on 1 August 2018
The Women's Leadership Symposium creates a setting for accomplished and aspiring women leaders to reflect on their own journeys and explore leadership, life and career development. Through exposure to state-of-the-art leadership thinking, delegates will come away from the event better equipped and empowered for the road ahead.
Addressing issues of leadership and career, the Symposium is an important chance to stay abreast of current Australian and international leadership trends. Engaging subject matter boosts participant leadership capacity while informative case studies and keynote addresses enhance the experience by examining key issues pertaining to the ongoing development of Australia's female leaders. There will be a panel discussion on leveraging growth opportunities for female talent. The day will also include an interactive development session on being brave, adaptive and experimental and avoiding sticking to one narrow story about what makes us effective and authentic.
The Symposium offers an unsurpassed forum for delegates to grow their networks far beyond their industries and local communities and to develop lasting relationships with like-minded women.
...And be inspired!
