Wednesday night marked our very first International Women’s Day event (scroll down for loads of event pics taken by our brilliant photographer Briony Masters) – but it definitely won’t be our last. We assembled a fabulous bunch of women on the Rooftop at Rydges Southbank and talked about how to get on with being your best self, in business and in life, with our smart and savvy panellists:

These brilliant ladies shared the challenges and triumphs that they’ve gone through in their careers, and had a universal way to cope with a hard day: wine!

The other big takeaway message was definitely BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. The panellists reinforced this message over and over, talking about their own experiences with imposter syndrome and the power of our instinct and learning to trust your gut.

All our panellists (and the crowd) agreed that instinct is one of our most excellent feminine talents. It’s a skill that we can all nurture that will help us in our daily and business lives. You don’t always need a spreadsheet of numbers to tell you that something is wrong! Sometimes you know in your gut what to do, you just need to listen.

We also gave away some brilliant prizes, thanks to Frankie4, Leina Broughton, Ruby Olive, Museum of Brisbane, Raels Robertson, Sunrise at Bondi and of course Champagne Cartel!

Gillian is always ridiculously excited to hang with her ladycrush, Nikki Parkinson!
