Join us at WOB's second WOBMeet in Brisbane. An evening for all aspiring leaders and directors who are subscribed to WOB to meet, share, network and learn.

More about this event

WOBMeet Brisbane 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.

Special - Bring a guest

We have received a lot of positive feedback from our first WOBMeet event about how much everyone enjoyed the evening, networking and the community feel among our members. We'd like to say thank you by opening this event to guests. If you have friends or colleagues that have never heard of us before, we encourage you to invite them (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!
