A special lunch is being held tomorrow to celebrate Queenstown women timed, almost, to coincide with International Women’s Day.
Just a handful of tickets are left for the Queenstown Airport Women in Business Lunch, being hosted by former lawyer Amy Scott (pictured)., recognised as a ‘‘people expert’’, who’ll share her knowledge, career journey and insights from her latest research.
She’s being joined by Highlands CEO Josie Spillane, who also leads the teams at Hampton Downs, Taupō International Motorsport Park, Game Over QT, Game Over Auckland and Game Over Christchurch, and Queenstown’s Melissa Jenner.
Jenner’s an entrepreneur, business leader and consultant with more than 25 years’ experience in marketing, strategy, design and general management working for some of the world’s biggest corporations.
Rounding out the panel is Chami Abseyinghe, who heads up Southland’s regional development agency, Great South, moving into that position after serving 12 years at Southern Institute of Technology in Invercargill, where she started as an international student, before moving through the ranks to hold a position on the executive leadership team before leaving.
Originally from Sri Lanka, her capabilities span international marketing, management, strategic leadership, logistics and operations and relationship management.
Being held in conjunction with the Queenstown Business Chamber of Commerce, the lunch runs from 12.30pm till 3pm at QT Queenstown’s Bazaar tomorrow.
Tickets costs $130 for a single ticket for Chamber members, or $160 for non-members, via the Chamber’s website.
