The Central Coast is fast becoming a mecca for internationals and Sydneysiders looking to downsize, enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle or simply get out of the big city. This is leading to an influx of amazing professional women to our WOB network here on the Coast. One such woman is EIizabeth W Scott who with her partner, Emma Dunch, moved to the Coast in 2022 via Sydney and, before that, New York. Her story is truly book worthy!

Join us at the historic Central Coast Conservatorium of Music building in Gosford to hear Elizabeth share her story and insights in conversation with WOB co-founder, Claire Braund.

WOB members and their guests are welcome. Register your guest when you check out in the shopping cart. Guests will be charged at the member rate. If you have already registered and would like to bring a guest, please email WOB at wob-aus@womenonboards.net.
