‘Successful women rarely set out to become role models. They just do the best they can, and hopefully, that becomes inspirational for other women.’

Joan Withers left high school with School Certificate at the age of 16 and from those unassuming beginnings has gone on to manage one of New Zealand's leading media organisations and to chair the boards of several of the country's largest companies. An outspoken advocate for diversity in the boardroom and for equal pay for women, Joan argues that gender inequality holds back not only women but economic growth globally.

Spend an evening with Joan over dinner and hear a candid account of her life and career. She shares her journey from stay-at-home mum to CEO of Fairfax New Zealand, and in-demand company director and board Chair. Get an insight into business leadership and what it takes to succeed, and a call to action for women to set their sights on the top of the corporate ladder.

Ticket includes 2 course dinner with glass of wine and a signed copy of Joan's book A Woman's Place.
