Female Founders Events and Webinars

As part of the Advance Queensland initiative, we’ll be hosting events and webinars aimed at highlighting successful Female Founders and providing them with a platform to share their journey, challenges and engage with like-minded individuals!

Our goal is to create opportunities for founders, individuals and communities to have engaging conversations, create real connections and inspire women and girls to achieve everyday innovation – whether that be through discovering sustainable new business ventures, commercialising exciting technological prototypes or exporting novel new products.

If you are unable to get to an event in person, grab a coffee and get comfy with our webinar series or check out our Learning Links page where we share Female Founder profiles, community news, and resources FREE for you to share or use.

  • Female Founders Boost Her September Webinar - September 12th, 2019

    There are a lot of buzzwords flying around today when businesses talk about digital transformation. Global research shows that as much as 96% of organisational budget in 2018 was spent on tech solutions specifically related to customer engagement.

    Redefining the way we approach customer engagement and digital marketing, it’s important for business leaders to understand these terms, their specific applications in a customer-experience context and deliver solutions that fulfil expectations.

    So, how do Female Founders feel they’re doing? 

    In this webinar, Yvette Adams and Jannah Dryden, will share their insights and experience in digital customer engagement and what it’s like to run highly successful Queensland businesses. There will be time for Q&A, so come armed with any questions you might have about the digital customer engagement and the Female Founders program!
