Record turnout at Transport Women Australia breakfast


Now we have the Brisbane Truck Show behind us with a record crowd both at the show and at the Transport Women Australia Limited breakfast on the Friday morning.

The breakfast hosted by Coralie Chapman, Simone Reinertsen from the TWAL board and our incredible volunteers, which always includes the Manton family, and was an outstanding success with many reaching out to congratulate us on the event.

This breakfast has become a highlight and major event on the TWAL calendar and our vice chair Coralie Chapman has set her sights high for another record crowd in 2025.

In the meantime, we have events coming up at CeMat in Sydney in July with TWAL taking part on ghe main stage, as a panellist and hosting our own event during the show on July 26. To obtain information on how to attend, check out our social media or contact events@transportwomen.com.au.

We will be at the Alexandra Truck Show on June 13 with Coralie as a presenter on the program for the day and I will be speaking at the Victoria Transport Infrastructure Conference on June 21. Our theme song Living the Dream has been shortlisted for the 2022 Australian Songwriting Awards for creator Dene Menzel, of Branthem, which is super exciting.

We are in the process of planning our events for the remainder of the year, with our EOY function dates set, we will be holding some Learning Initiative Breakfasts in the next few months. If you are interested in sponsoring or hosting one of these Break- fasts, please contact chair@transportwomen.com.au

We have our Transport Women Unite Red Ball during the Festival of Transport at Alice Springs as well as our annual TWAL breakfast.

Bookings can be made the Hall of Fame website. We also have nominations arriving for our Dream Maker Award. Nominations Forms are available through the Hall of Fame website or by contacting chair@transportwomen. com.au.

We have our four finalists and their families attending the Women in Industry Awards dinner and we are praying for a great result.

Plans are underway for the 2024 conference with the venue to be announced shortly. It will be held from May 30 to June 1, 2024. We have the amazing Melissa Strong confirmed as our MC again after the outstanding job she did last year.

Sponsorship opportunities and packages will be available soon and anyone interested can contact chair@transportwomen.com.au or phone 0417 422 319.

We have also set the date for our 25th Anniversary celebrations as November 16, 2024, so get ready to party.

This will be a more relaxed setting than our 20th anniversary gala dinner but will be sure to be just as much fun with great music and food, and excellent company.

During the first half of this year, we have worked with making new partnership to support our programs and mission.

If you are interested in partnering with Transport Women Australia Limited or want to increase your support through a partnership program, please reach out via chair@transportwomen.com. au, our website, transportwomen.com.au, or call me on 0417 422 319.
