Women In Industry (WAVES Breakfast)

Following the outstanding support of the inaugural Women’s Leadership Seminar at SPLASH! in 2018, SPASA Australia is delighted to be hosting many successful female leaders this year during the SPLASH! Trade Expo to build on the momentum of the program in 2019.

Come and kick things off with a dedicated Breakfast and Workshop with one of Australia’s most decorated female Olympians, who has furthered her career in business and leadership to become remarkable. Held on the morning of SPLASH! from 7:30am, come and gather with other like-minded industry women and hear from our inspirational speaker. ​Brooke Hanson will certainly provide us with some great insights on what it takes to be successful and lead with dignity.

Join the SPASA WAVES (Women Attaining Vision, Excellence & Success) community as we continue through the 2021 RISE program and take a look at Success at this years SPLASH! Breakfast event.
