This breakfast event was to celebrate women in marketing and ran from 7.30am to 9am.
The event was organised by the Marketing Womens Inc where it was held at Y&R Melbourne on Collins Street. The layout of the building provided a friendly and welcoming setting for the networking event whilst we listened to the guest speakers.
The guest panel were Margie Reid (Managing Director of OMD) and Teresa Basile (Former General Manager of Marketing, Communications and Digital at GM Holden).
The two industry leaders discussed the impact of the changes that are taking place within marketing today in businesses as well as discussing some insights into their businesses.
As it was a morning event, most attendees left straight away to get to work on time which provided with limited opportunity to network after the event finished. There was the opportunity to network with the guests who were seated on your table.
The catering for the breakfast was a selection of pastries, toast and bagels as well as fruit. Beverages such as coffee, tea and fruit juices were also available.
The Melbourne Womens Inc (MWI) have regular networking events, as well as a mentoring program which focuses on empowering women and connecting women through marketing. You can sign up to become a mentor or a mentee here.
Location: Y&R Melbourne, Level 3, 162 Collins Street Melbourne, 3000
