As the national round of Women in Print breakfasts prepares to kick-off, the Melbourne event – scheduled for May 25 – is now completely sold out with tickets now being issued via direct arrangement.
The theme of this year’s breakfast series is mental wellbeing with keynotes to be given by Steven Gamble of Wo/Man Anchor and Liz Whyte of Life Foundations.
Women in Print’s Victorian patron, Kirsten Taylor of Taylor’d Press, said when bookings started to take off in March she negotiated with the Leonda by the Yarra venue for a larger booking.
And with online sales closing last weekend, she is glad she did.
A waiting list is running for anyone would like to attend but has not yet got a ticket.

“The Women in Print community has really rallied around after such a difficult year and we are thrilled to announce the sell-out breakfast in Melbourne,” Taylor said.
“We are looking forward to a morning where we again get to network, show support and contribute to our mental wellbeing.
“Thank you to our supporters and sponsors who have enabled the breakfasts to go forward with great enthusiasm despite the challenges we have faced. I am very much looking forward to seeing the familiar faces and those that I’ve not yet met in our wider industry.”
The Real Media Collective CEO and Secretariat of Women in Print, Kellie Northwood, said the Women in Print breakfast series is much-needed after a difficult 2020.
“The Women in Print program this year is focussed on mental health and wellness, much needed after a difficult 2020 year and women across our industry have responded to this need with ticket purchases,” Northwood said.
“I cannot thank the supplier and sponsor partners who have supported the series this year, despite budgetary restrictions from COVID. They know how important it is to support Women in Print and such an important Wellness focus this year.”
