From accounts to sales, from manufacturing to operations, from delivery to installation, this year the keynote will be useful and insightful to all,” said Stephanie Gaddin, chair of Women in Print Australia.

The keynote activity for the 2024 Breakfast Series will be delivered by Christina Bruce, speaker, author, leader, and sales trainer with extensive corporate experience. The keynote activity is titled 'Don’t just think outside of the box, build a better box'.

Bruce has 25 years' experience in sales and marketing, working with teams in leadership and training capacities throughout her corporate career in Australia and overseas. Her diverse experience spans professional services, tertiary education, medical devices, healthcare, logistics, manufacturing, and IP law.

Hobart is again on the calendar, this time with a breakfast, following is successful inaugural event in 2023, launched as a small luncheon with great success. Tasmanian patron, and deputy chair of Women in Print, Sam Dobie said, “In the few short months we have been operational in Tasmania, interest has been enthusiastic across the board, from both women and men, from executive levels through to those on the tools. This tells me we are creating opportunities and events with value that resonate with everyone, and ultimately that's what this is all about, being passionate industry leaders, doing things that benefit all of us.”
