Join us at WOB's inaugural WOBMeet Adelaide. An evening for all aspiring leaders and directors who are subscribers of WOB to meet, share, network and learn.

More about this event

WOBMeet Adelaide will be held bi-monthly for our subscribers to meet or reconnect, share knowledge & information and practice their all important 'elevator pitch' ……over a friendly drink. The atmosphere will be informal, relaxed and supportive.
Now we know that women are busy and it’s hard to find time, so we’ve developed a swift yet relaxed format that will start and finish on time and provide opportunities to meet other women in the WOB network.

Subscribers are able to invite friends and colleagues (ladies and gents both welcome). You may also have a great contact in mind who you would like WOB to invite to speak at the event. 

All we ask is that you come with an open mind, preparedness to mingle and a touch of dazzle!
