Female entrepreneurs inspire WA business

Date: 10 June 2016

Fifth annual Inspiring Entrepreneurship Luncheon in Perth

More than 200 people will hear three inspirational West Australian women share their experiences in business and their road to success at a Liberal National Government event in Perth this month.

 

Deputy Premier and Women's Interests Minister Liza Harvey said the fifth annual Inspiring Entrepreneurship Luncheon on Friday, June 24 would provide attendees with the opportunity to network with like-minded entrepreneurs and leaders across WA business, government and community sectors.

 

"Entrepreneurship is a pathway for women to achieve economic independence while providing the flexibility that many women need to juggle other commitments," Mrs Harvey said.

 

"The number of female small business owners in WA is growing, and so is the interest in hearing their success stories and the challenges they have encountered along the way.

 

"This annual event has become a wonderful opportunity to network with innovative businesswomen and businessmen in this State."

 

"The Liberal National Government is committed to promote and enhance the economic independence and leadership of Western Australian women."

 

The keynote speakers include Vanya Cullen from Cullen Wines, Sharon Grosser from SEQTA Software and Louise Daw from MiPlan.
