Win 2 Tickets To The Townsville Women's Leadership Forum

The Australian Women’s Leadership Forum is a unique development program run in key regional and remote locations across the country. Sympathetic to the needs of regional women, this highly interactive one day program takes participants on a powerful journey of self-discovery as they work together to explore themes around leadership, resilience, empowerment and career/life fulfilment.

Packed full of practical tips and advice, the program is a dynamic journey of self-reflection, networking and planning for future success. Importantly, the forum offers a unique opportunity to learn from the experiences of other women.​ 

The Townsville Leadership Forum is carefully designed to immerse participants in the subject matter and create valuable insights informed by collective experience. During the program, a number of key themes are explored via a combination of expert presentations, collaborative discussion, experiential activities and personal reflection.

  • As President (& volunteer) of our local not for profit, Unlock the Lachs, I am advocating for inclusion and social change and my passion is driven in loving memory of my son, Lachy. I have developed some wonderful and supportive networks locally and have recently been invited as a local champion for Changing Lives, Changing Communities (an initiative of the Queensland Council of Social Services & the Queensland Disability Network). I am also a member of the Inclusive Community Advisory Committee, reporting to Townsville City Council. This workshop would be a fantastic opportunity and learning resource in taking the next step to formalise the foundations I am building and truly make a difference.

  • Having grown up in a regional area and completed university there was no option for me to work in my home town and so I moved to a capital city. I am hoping to use this day to reflect on my own experience of lifestyle sacrifice for work and to interact with others to understand potential solutions for finding meaningful work in a regional location. This day is not only planning for a better future for myself but also for me to take this message back to my home town, to empower others to find that balance for themselves regardless of physical location.

  • Amazing things happen when women not only support each other, but inspire and motivate one another by sharing our life learnings. As a proud local woman who takes great pride in advocating the empowerment of women, I would feel honoured to share a day with such a wide array of strong and capable women from varying and interesting backgrounds, be they presenters sharing their individual stories or fellow attendees I would be lucky enough to meet and share the day with.

    Amanda Bell on

  • There are so many reasons why I would love to attend the Australian Women Leadership Forum, on a personal level I would love to connect to some of the extraordinary women in far North Queensland who are making a difference in the business world and more importantly in the wider world. I also feel that there is an opportunity to connect with Tracey Spicer, a powerful woman with a transformative message and I believe she would resonate strongly with the themes and messages held within the pages of Beneath The Veil. To share a conversation with her on these topics would be powerful for many. And there is no event in Newcastle so I might as well come to Townsville! X
