Ready to Lead: Women, Rise to the Top

If you are a woman looking to step into to a leadership role, then this event is designed for you. At AustCham, we strongly believe in Women rising into leadership roles, so we have designed a series of events to help you learn how you will succeed on your way to leadership.

First up, we have prepared for you a not-to-be-missed event, including a keynote presentation from the remarkable Mrs. Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul who has a successful proven track record in leadership. A panel of experts with extensive leadership experience across multiple industries will also present and share in an open and safe forum.The purpose of this event is to support you and/or your challenges on the way to the top with real time examples, culminating the event with a quality networking session, to help you meet like-minded people who are on a similar journey to you.

You will receive the kind of advice that women further along in their careers might wish they had known, from sidestepping the pitfalls of office culture to leveraging alliances with co-workers.

Join us at this Women’s Edition event one, and allow our Women in Leadership Committee to show you ways in which you can overcome challenges you may face.
