Female Founders: In-Conversation with Australia’s most innovative founders

June 8, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm AEST

CWC kicks off its Female Founder In-Conversation series with two of Australia’s most innovative founders!

CWC is a community of passionate game-changers , so it was a no-brainer that our next event would have some real movers and shakers that took their creative passion and turned it into something truly exceptional.

Join CWCs President Julie Ockerby as we sit down for an intimate conversation with two of Australia’s most innovative female founders – Dr Suji Sanjeevan and Kate Dillon.

Inclusions: Q&A, networking, food and drinks.

More Info

Dr Suji Sanjeevan is a Melbourne-based medically trained clinical researcher who made the ultimate career change to become an ambience creator – founder of two companies Light and Glo and Brand Scent. A natural leader and businesswoman, Suji, a mother of three, started making wood-wick candles as a creative outlet to relieve stress. She soon learned that this ‘creative outlet’ had tangible substance, with a customer base and need. Now Suji is going global!

Kate Dillon, a corporate lawyer, founded She Lion. Her mission was to create premium products that encourage women to Walk Fearlessly and ignite opportunity.

We’re talking statement-making handbags with distinctive interiors for tech, chargers and EVERYTHING else we now carry in our bags in today’s modern world.

When COVID-19 hit in 2020, Kate had to think quick – with the new WFH situation, her customers no longer needed her products.

In a sensational product pivot, the business sought to establish a wholly end-to-end Australian made range of empowered slogan apparel, driven primarily by female makers, that supports 20+ local VIC and NSW businesses to survive (and thrive through) the pandemic.

Come and see their passion for yourself, and learn from their success as female founders in an intimate conversation with CWC.

There are only 50 tickets available for this event so book early.

We look forward to seeing you there!
