“I actually sat here all day thinking how privileged am I to be in this room of amazing women with extraordinary speakers. It’s probably one of the best events I’ve been to I would say in at least 10 years. The energy, the way in which all the speakers were curated and the theming throughout. I felt so humbled to be part of that and I’m really proud to be an advocate of this industry and hats off to REINSW, all of you have done an extraordinary job.”
