Join us at the inaugural WOBMeet Canberra. An evening for all aspiring leaders and directors who are subscribed to WOB to meet, share, network and learn.

More about this event

WOBMeet Canberra will be held 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.

Twice a year you will be 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!

Timing is everything …

5.00pm  First drinks
5.30pm  Welcome
5.35pm Guest panel – all your questions answered

Formalities kick off 5.30pm sharp

Price includes one drink on arrival + light finger food. Following your first drink, drinks available at bar prices.

We thought we would kick off with people who we know can inspire and add value to your evening.
