NSW Women in Franchising High Tea 08/03/2012

What does it take for a woman to lead, as a founder, CEO or on the Board?

Whether you currently aspire to a board appointment or not, this is a must attend event. Hear from two experienced and awarded female leaders who will share their perspective on women in leadership roles.

“Small things, big impact”
- Naomi Simson

Naomi Simson is founder of leading online gift retailer, RedBalloon. Naomi is Ernst & Young Industry Entrepreneur of the Year, 2011.

Learn Naomi's personal philosophy of "How the leadership team goes, so too the rest of the organisation", and the role the board plays in creating a shared purpose and vision. Discover how creating an engaged team creates better, more profitable business; how RedBalloon has evolved into an iconic brand thanks to its value-based culture, where generosity and ‘thank-you’ is the norm. You will be inspired to hear how small things can have a big impact.

“A board appointment can change your life!”
– Helen Wiseman

Have you thought about being on a board in business, your community or a not-for-profit? The personal and professional rewards are valuable, but how do you get there? If you report to a board, how can you be more effective? Helen will share insights on the skills a board member needs and how acquiring them can broaden your options.
