Women & Leadership Australia

There’s something truly exciting about a collective of inspiring women coming together to motivate other women to step up and see their full potential. Women & Leadership Australia is a national initiative committed to supporting the presence of women in business and community leadership roles.

What Impact Are Your Conversations Having?
19 June | Riff Co-working spaces, 45 ST Georges Terrace
If you’re anything like me, sometimes networking can be a little brain numbing or daunting filled with repeated questions and small talk. How do you utilise this time, so you actually benefit from said conversations? Sandra Booth from Believe Achieve Coaching & Consulting is here to answer our prayers with an interactive and insightful small group program where we’ll explore how our conversations impact us, and what we can do to improve them together in order to influence, engage, and resolve conflict in healthy ways with others. Would be rude not to.
Tickets from $264.84 Book here.
State of Social
25 June | Optus Stadium
What started out as an excuse for social media enthusiasts to get social IRL and discuss all things digital over a drink, has become the go-to hub for Perth’s social media novices and social marketing maestros alike. This edition will pick the minds of some of the industry’s brightest such as Chris Messina, Jenn Herman, Jenna Clarke, Matt Navarra, Chris Wirasinha, Jonothan Harley, Meg Coffey, Clive Bingwa, Matt Popkes, Dave Stewart and Nic Hayes on riveting topics such as:
- Fake News. Which comes first: the news chicken or the social egg? We explore the interplay between social and today’s supercharged news cycle.
- Real Trends. Digging beneath the latest platform and algorithm updates, we unearth what is – and will be – happening with your favourite channels.
- Now What? We’ll load up your cerebrum with all the intel and data you need to answer the question ‘Where to from here?’
