Event description

While we wait for our senior leaders to create more diversity, little changes – less that 35% of senior roles are held by women in Australia’s corporations. Why wait for our leaders to make the change – let’s look at what we can personally do! 

During this interactive session, Maree will describe some tips about building your confidence to step into more senior roles. She focusses on key areas from her book: The XX Project – Giving Women the skills and confidence to step up in the corporate world. 

Key points: 

  • Don’t just survive - thrive in your role  
  • Confidence and ability – the secrets to attaining that promotion 
  • Our comfort zone and why that is a dangerous place to be 


  • Tips to build your confidence  
  • How to play to your strengths  
  • How to build awareness – both of self and others
