IWIB Business Womens Awards Day IWIB Business Womens Awards Day

Join us at City Beach Function Centre to celebrate the success of all women in business in the Illawarra at the 2017 IWIB Illawarra Business Women's Awards!

We have a fabulous day in store! Enjoy entertainment throughout the afternoon and we have Lisa Burling from LBPR as guest speaker at this event.

Lisa is an informative and motivating speaker - 2016 was a phenomenal year for Lisa Burling.  In May 2016 she was recognised by IWIB with three awards, including IWIB Business Woman of the Year, Innovative Businesswoman of the Year for her world-first student consultency Catalyst, and her business LBPR was IWIB Best Small Business.

It was a magical day, setting off a chain of wonderful events that saw all of her “vision board” dreams come true in record speed.

But what do you do when you find you’ve achieved all you wanted to that year by June? And how do you deal with feelings of elation one minute, and emptiness the next?

 Lisa will talk about the highlights and lowlights of her year since the 2016 IWIB Awards in her usual hand on heart, honest style, showing that it’s OK to take the foot off the pedal for a while whilst sharing her strategies to regroup, recalibrate and set sail for the next adventure.....
