Save the date for annual conference in Melbourne

The Transport Women Australia Limited Driving the Difference Conference is just weeks away and we are excited that we can finally bring this event to you at the fabulous Hyatt Place, Essendon Fields from June 3-5.

After the hyperactivity of March and April with functions and school careers events, online speaking opportunities and more, we are in full preparation mode for Driving the Difference Conference. 

With two postponements, we cannot wait to present our great speakers and highlight our initiatives and our sponsors. 

The conference kicks off with the Volvo Group Cocktail Party on Friday night, followed by the Viva Energy breakfast on Saturday morning. 

Our opening keynote is Jacqui Alder from Clarity, Simplicity, Success who will speak about how the finding the clarity and simplicity can lead to success in both your career and personal life. 

The programme then follows on with Kerrie Challenor from NTI, Paul Simionato and Kim Denyer from the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator, Adrian Rhodes from Inspire the Future Australia, Rhonda Stone of Training Services NSW, Ruza Zivkusic of Import Export TV and Gillian Bristow of Bristow Legal. We also here from the team at TWUSUPER about your superannuation post Covid.

We will have a session with the TWAL Board which will be an interactive session on the future of TWAL, and I hope members will participate with ideas.  

We also hope to have a session on licencing which is quite a controversial topic now and I am sure that session will be very intense.

We will be hearing from graduates of the Women Driving Transport Careers programme and their trainer and a representative from one of the companies involved. We will also have two winners of the Driving the Difference scholarship talk about what it has meant to them.  

For our closing keynote we have David Coleman, The Dating Dr presenting via zoom from the USA. David’s amazing speaker and the only official public speaker ever to receive the coveted Entertainer of The Year Award, David is an incredible speaker, and it is his first appearance in Australia, so we are extremely lucky to have him on the programme. 

His presentation will be thought provoking, humorous and highly entertaining. He will speak about both about managing our relationships both business and professional and offer some advice along the way. 

We would like to thank everyone for hanging in there for the past year through the first postponement and then the second when we were subjected to another lockdown. 

We are so appreciative that our sponsors, speakers, and attendees have kept the faith. Special thanks to our Foundation Business Partners, NTI, and Volvo Group Australia. All sponsors have been acknowledged in the TWAL newsletter for the past year.
