On the 11th March 2011 over 100 women came together to celebrate International Women’s Centenary 1911 – 2011 Event.  Entitled ‘Women Celebrating Women’, is the first of many that will bring women together to encourage, elevate, educate, empower and celebrate each other.


There was an excitement of anticipated expectation and energy in the air from 10:00am when the programme commenced, which lasted right through to the close at 9:00pm.  The event kicked off with women networking, followed by seminars on – Health & Well Being, Self Management and also Business Marketing. Women were together for the networking lunch and business owners, both men and women, showcased their products and services.


The evening ended on a high with the ‘Unsung Women’s Award and Grand Finale’.

Exceeded my expectations.  Very Good.  Lots of group and individual exercises.  Think that the course should be for most staff.
