Three senior industry figures will speak at the PrintEx15 Women in Print breakfast, providing attendees with tips on financial planning and career progression. The women only breakfast will feature Kylie Goodwin, group recruitment manager, Fairfax Media; Karen Strain, financial planner, Media Super; and Jennifer Baile, national business manager, Fuji Xerox, who will share their experiences and give tips for a ‘successful, sustainable career and financial future’. Speaking with Australian Printer, co-host of the event Karen Goldsmith, who is the NSW Women in Print patron and executive director of GAMAA, says this Women in Print is a forum for women representing the industry.
She says it is not focused on ‘attracting more women to the industry’, but engaging with those already working in print and graphic media. “[The event will give attendees] a chance to once again connect and build relationships, and the panel discussion aims to educate women within the industry in a professional capacity. It will also provide a forum for learning and questioning.” Goldsmith says each of the panellists is ‘highly accomplished’ in their field, and as a consequence brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the conversation. She says, “This breakfast provides a great opportunity to take advantage of the expertise in the room and to tap into the networks that Women in Print has established over the last eight years. “Each time we have held a breakfast in conjunction with a major trade fair we have had capacity attendance so I encourage everyone to book early.” Women in Print PrietEx15 breakfast buffet, which costs $30 per person, will be held on May 14, at Somerville Room, Level 1 The Dome, Sydney Olympic Park, at 7:30am. Goldsmith says about 400 women attended the national March breakfasts this year, and expects an average of 80 to 100 women to attend the PrintEx15 breakfast, so registrations are essential.
