2017 was a powerful year for women - we raised awareness all around the world about women's rights and equal pay, openly shared our experiences, and united to challenge the status quo. Which is why in 2018 we've called Time's Up! on the way things used to be. Progress Starts Now! So we've brought together some of the most influential women in town to discuss what progress means to them, what we can expect next and how we can band together and change the future for women everywhere - including you. Bring your friends, your entire team or come alone. You'll be joining us and hundreds of other like-minded women and men in this exciting watershed moment... because Progress Starts Now! Your Host: Sally Obermeder, will ensure you have a breakfast experience like no other! Not only is she the Co-Host of Channel 7's Daily Edition, but as an author and entrepreneur herself, she won't shy away from discussing topics that really matter. Be prepared to be inspired, and enthralled all at the same time. Key Note Speaker: Leigh Sales, is no stranger on experiencing doubt (she's written a book about it!), and yet she's learned how to push through it and become one of Australia's most respected journalists, anchoring ABC's 7.30 Report and interviewing the likes of Hillary Clinton, Tony Blair and of course many of our Prime Ministers. Leigh's talk will give you priceless insights on her career journey, what progress means for women today, and what we can collectively do about it to finally smash that glass ceiling and any obstacles standing in our way. Joining Leigh Sales on our panel will be unstoppable feminist thinker Clementine Ford who amongst her many achievements has just published "Fight Like a Girl", plus you'll hear from our resident behavioural expert Dr Stephanie Burns on why we as adults struggle to turn our goals into reality and what we can do to really take it to the next level. Tickets are selling fast! You'll want to book this now!
