QLD Executive | Behind The Brand


QLD Executive | Behind The Brand Series

Speaker: Lisa Newman - Former Lady Mayoress, Director, Arcana Capital

Behind The Brand Series

No glass ceiling here. Just the raw truth from our CEO’s. The transparency behind their success. Gain an insight on who they are, what they do. Their authentic self. A snippet of relatability.

Women’s Network Australia showcases the incredible business success stories of our members. With an in-depth Q&A style Spritzer and relaxed conversation, hear not only their stories, but their personal journey to get where they are today. Their story of success, survival and strategy. Don’t miss their nuggets of gold. Some of true grit and determination when the odds are stacked against them.

We invite the audience to ask questions and engage with our speakers. It is about the power of the conversation.
