Today we all find ourselves in the ever transforming Digital Era with over 3.6 billion internet users (49.5% of world population in 2016). However, we seem to be less connected and losing the art of communication. Combined with so many tools and platforms it can be a daunting and confusing task.

At Digital Women’s Network, we believe in the power of learning through networking and hence have created a space to share ideas, ask questions, learn new skills, meet people with shared interests.

The need for strong network increases throughout a person’s career and life stages. Your career may change, your job may shift and colleagues may come and go. However having a great network can help you in many ways from growing a business or tapping into the hidden job market.

Here at Digital Women’s Network we create monthly events and courses to assist in both professional and personal development of women. All in order to build the leaders of tomorrow and ensure women are at the forefront of the global digital revolution.

Digital Women’s Network also connects members online and offline around the world through online platforms.

To be a part of our international network of digital leaders, become a member with a choice of our varied membership packages, be a part of the conversation at one of our events, meet up groups and/or simply sign up to our emails.

Our HQ is located at 2,287 Collins Street, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia 3000.

meet our team of fabulous women

I believe in putting customer experience first through challenging the status quo and thinking differently. I do this by simplifying complexity across operating models, systems and processes, and empowering leaders, managers and front-line personnel to achieve step-change improvements in customer experience, revenue, cost, and identify new sources of value.

With over 20 years’ experience leading and guiding people and organisations through change and transformation across diverse industries in Australia and globally, either at portfolio or project level; and after 7 years in private practice, I’m keen to rejoin a large innovative organisation as a core team member and make a valuable contribution.
