Tamworth female business professionals will have the chance to learn from a leading voice in Australian politics and media this October.
Hosted by HealthWISE, Kate Watson, co-host of the crowd-pleasing Australian news podcast The Squiz Today, will visit Tamworth and share her experiences from working in Australian politics and media.
The former political staffer will bring her expertise to The Exchange, a network of female professionals in the New England North West region to be held at the Welder’s Dog on Thursday, October 31 from 12-2pm. Women in business and leadership roles will come together over lunch to hear Kate speak and join a panel of guests sharing their professional hacks, stories and insights.
After starting her career in federal politics, including roles in both the opposition leader and prime minister’s offices, Kate has also built a prominent profile in the media sphere, as a former Australian Women’s Weekly and Sky News employee. She has many stories to tell from running large campaigns and events to pushing for regional broadcasting during her days with Sky News.
Kate is also familiar with the challenge of starting a new business and navigating the ups and downs of a start-up while pursuing a strategic direction. The purpose of the event is to provide an opportunity for attendees to come together as a community and learn from each other’s professional experiences.
HealthWISE CEO Fiona Strang says that she is looking forward to exchanging ideas with the many talented and experienced business women from across the New England region, and exploring future opportunities for networking, sharing of ideas, skills and experiences, and linking with the like-minded or potential mentors.
HealthWISE is not for profit organisation with a vision for healthy communities. The Exchange is a free event, however numbers are limited.
