Business Chicks Presents
Have you ever looked at a woman with a cool career and thought, ‘Man, I wish I could buy her a coffee and ask her everything! How did she ‘make it’? Does she ever have imposter syndrome? What advice can she give me?’
Well, no need to stalk your LinkedIn crush and ask them out for a flat white: instead, we’re giving you access to a powerhouse panel for our next Career Files event – three executives bringing you unfiltered career advice and answering all your questions in a live Q&A.
Brought to you by our friends at RMIT and free for our Premium members, you’ll hear how these execs carved out their career, their golden advice for others looking to follow a similar path, and everything else they’ve learnt along the way.
It doesn’t matter if you’re just starting out or have decades of experience – we can all learn something from women who’ve charted the path to work they love.
Meet the panel
