Join us at WOBMeet Sydney. An evening for all aspiring leaders and directors who are full members of WOB to meet, share, network and learn.

More about this event

WOBMeet Sydney is held bi-monthly for our full members 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 friend

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

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