Celebrating Women In Business - VIRTUAL Event
The purpose of the CWIB event is to celebrate amazing women in business who have had a powerful impact in society and have achieved some great milestones within their career. This popular bi-annual event, hosted by the Sydney Hills Business Chamber aims to inspire both men and women as we celebrate the lives of incredible female CEO’s, Founders, Directors and Managing directors. The lunch attracts 90 – 110 attendees and is growing every year.
This May we are really excited to introduce two amazing and inspiring ladies, Josephine Sukkar AM from Buildcorp and Linda Laidlaw from RESMED.
You will leave this event inspired and ready to overcome any challenges you may be facing after hearing these amazing ladies share their pathways to success.
