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 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.
The day includes a panel discussion on how best to advance female representation in professional and community roles as well as a vibrant development session to support delegates in navigating the responsibilities and opportunities that leadership brings.
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. Effectively leveraging the bountiful networking opportunities can be daunting, so the event is geared to provide engaging ways to meet other women such as business card swaps, seating movements, group activities and structured networking sessions.
This prestigious event showcases some of Australia's most outstanding leaders from a diverse range of fields including health, internet, not for profit and academia. The Tasmania State Winner of the 2017 Australian Award for Excellence in Women's Leadership will be announced at the Symposium in honour of their contributions to the advancement of gender equality in Tasmania. The phenomenal speaker line-up includes Diana Butler OAM (Chief Executive Officer, Care for Africa), Kellie Wilkie (Principal Physiotherapist & Director, Bodysystem Physio), Kellie Cordner (Chief Marketing Officer, carsales.com) and Dr Terrance Fitzsimmons (Lecturer & Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, University of Queensland Business School).
