Join the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network at our ‘Women in Sport’ Breakfast in collaboration with Silicon Coast, on Tuesday 10 October at the Maroochy Surf Club.

The recent dominance of the Matildas on the soccer field got us thinking about the role that we could be playing in spotlighting women who are making gains in their careers and how together we are stronger in building and developing this important industry, and our business opportunities in this arena. 

Hear from our inspiring panellists about how we can:

  • Highlight and grow the renewed interest in women in sport
  • Build a thriving sports community on the Sunshine Coast for all
  • Ensure businesses benefit from this growth and the upcoming 2032 Games
  • Discuss what we can do as a community to make equality an outcome

This discussion will be led by SCBWN President Min Swan and Craig ‘CJ’ Josic from Silicon Coast, and the panel will include:

  • Laura Scherian – Sunshine Coast Lightning and former Diamonds netball player
  • Alana Quade (nee Boyd) – Olympian and former Australian pole vaulter, and on the leadership team for Sunshine Coast 2032
  • Owen Bowling – Co-Founder and CEO at Coach Welly, an AI powered wellness platform
  • Nicolle Kelly -  Executive Director at Department of Tourism, Innovation and Sport, Queensland Government

In the leadup to the 2032 Games is there no better time to be having this conversation and opening our minds up to the possibilities.

A little more about our panellists:
