Business News is proud to launch a new breakfast series to showcase the incredible and inspiring stories of Western Australia’s leading women in business.

Based on current growth patterns, female CEO’s will have to wait another 80 years until 2100 before achieving equal representation with their male counterparts.

That is why it is so important to celebrate women in business in WA. Food for Thought provides a unique platform to connect and engage outside of their normal networks in a relaxed environment.

Our Food for Thought breakfast series will be a celebration of the myriad of achievements by WA’s extraordinary businesswomen.  An informal chat style breakfast, our speakers will join Network Ten journalist Narelda Jacobs to discuss their success, journey and difficulties faced by women in a cross section of business.   The breakfasts will be interactive and allow guests the opportunity to ask questions and fully immerse themselves in the event experience.

Charity sponsor Parkverville Children and Youth Care is joined by our series Patrons Fiona Wood and Kate Lamont along with support from 100 Women.
