Event description

You're invited to the SA Woman Breakfast Series

Friday 29th of September 2023

We are back for our third breakfast event of the year and we can't wait to again showcase and inspire through the journeys of South Australian women in business and careers!

Each breakfast will bring together a panel of women to go deep into the highs, the lows, the pivots and the gamechanging moments that have led them on the path they are today. Through conversation we learn, we inspire and we believe that if they can, I can too! Because there are more than one way women in South Australia can Soar! 

Your ticket includes inspiring conversation, new connections, a beautiful individually plated breakfast along with freshly brewed tea and coffee. Please ensure you advise of dietary requirements.

Amanda EwbankPebble and Palm

Strategic, passionate, creative, and adaptable are a few words that come to mind when thinking about Amanda. Owner of the beautiful Pebble and Palm Interiors and a Strategic Advisor, Engagement Specialist and Leadership Consultant.

With a career story that could be described as ‘non-traditional’, Amanda has been a Park Ranger, Banking Executive, Interior Stylist, Leadership Consultant and Small Business Owner (just to name a few! ..) After spending some 17+ years in Senior Leadership positions across the corporate sphere in Banking, Tech Start-Ups and in SA Government, 5 years ago she followed a passion and a dream and opened a homewares and interior design business. She still flexes her corporate skills, and is currently leading a Transformation Program and building a new Digital Strategy for the South Australian Police which looks at next generation policing through a technology lens.

As a lover of beautiful things, Amanda works with her Pebble & Palm Interiors clients to curate relaxed interiors that people can live and love in. Styling fills her cup and sparks joy; and consulting stretches the brain, challenges her thinking, and provides a feeling of fulfilment. She’s a step-mum, wife, sister, daughter, friend and SAW member since 2019.
