The confidence deficit: Why you’re not just lucky

Recession: What the evolving economic climate means for women
3 FEBRUARY AT 12:00PM - 1:00PM AEDT: Angela Jackson is a leading public sector and health economist, who has advised governments at the highest levels and negotiated with toddlers while crouched very low to the ground.

Identifying financial opportunities to survive and thrive
10 FEBRUARY AT 12:00PM - 1:00PM AEDT: Lacey Filipich is the founder of Money School where she helps people become financially independent and reclaim their lives.

Knowing your strengths. Finding your influence
17 FEBRUARY AT 12:00PM - 1:30PM AEDT: Mim Bartlett is an executive coach and facilitator who specialises in career development and wellbeing. Mim teaches you how to integrate the different parts of your life while embracing the unavoidable personal and professional discomfort.

Knowing your worth and asking for what you want
