International Women's Day 2016
The Annual Women in Insurance International Women's Day luncheon will take place on Tuesday, 8 March 2016, at Room Three Sixty QUT Gardens Point Campus.
We invite you to celebrate with us and hear from the Queensland Young Australian of the Year (2010) and Finalist in two categories of the Telstra Business Woman of the Year Awards (2011), Jean Madden, Managing Director of Street Swags.
Jean Madden is on a mission to change the face of homelessness in Australia – she is ambitious, stating that her overarching long-term goal is to eradicate poverty.
It was in August 2005, while watching a documentary about the effect that lack of sleep had on the physical and mental health of homeless people, that Brisbane schoolteacher Jean Madden was spurred into action. She decided she'd buy every homeless person in Brisbane a swag for Christmas, but soon realised that existing products didn't suit their needs. So she designed something more lightweight and portable, and Street Swags was born.
As a pioneer and leader in business, Jean will share with our guests what motivates her and the secrets to her success!
Businesses and individuals will have the opportunity to donate to this wonderful cause at the luncheon.
Time: 12 noon to 2.00 pm
Location: Room 360, QUT, 21A Gardens Point Road
Price For Members : $110.00
Price For Non-Members : $130.00
