To celebrate International Women’s Day, Showcase SA are shining the spotlight on inspiring South Australian women in leadership in the areas of Government, entrepreneurship, innovation, and social & community engagement.
Showcase SA’s formal sit-down luncheon is to be held at the iconic Penfold’s Magill Estate’s ‘The Tunnels’ on Wednesday where attendees lucky enough to secure a spot at the sold-out event will be hearing from four incredible South Australian women in leadership.
Lord Mayor Sandy Verschoor, Lord Mayor at the City of Adelaide, who has a PHD in Business Administration and has worked from marketing to CEO in local events such as Adelaide Fringe, WOMADelaide, Adelaide Film Festival and Adelaide Festival of The Arts
Caroline McMillen, Chief Scientist for South Australia who has a decorated career, including her 6-year term as Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Vice President of Research and Innovation at the University of South Australia, as well as being appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia during the 2020 Queen’s Birthday Honours.
Taryn Brunfitt, Founder of Body Image Movement, an internationally recognised movement encouraging women to embrace their bodies, founded on the belief that your body is not an ornament, it’s the vehicle to your dreams.
Kathryn House, Community Builder of Impact100 SA and founder of Young Impact SA which awards high-impact grants to a range of South Australian-based organisations, supporting vulnerable members of the community.
This event is a fitting choice for Showcase SA as Co-Founder and Glam Adelaide CEO Kelly Noble, who will be acting as MC during the luncheon, was recently joint-awarded City of Adelaide Citizens of The Year Community Event of the Year award with her husband and Showcase SA CEO Steve Testar.
