What do you get when you put nearly 100 talented, passionate, hard-working, motivated women in a room together for a day?
This was the fourth year that the 2011 Albany and Great Southern Women’s Leadership Forum delivered an outstanding day of learning from inspirational leaders in their field.
This year’s line-up of speakers included:
Barb deCorti - Founder and CEO of ENJO Australia
Kate Lamont - Restauranteur, Vigneron, Chair Tourism WA
Julie Meek - Dietitian & Performance Specialist
Cate Kodo Juno – Ordained Buddhist Priest
Caroline Robinson – RIRDC 2011 Australian Rural Woman of the Year
Natasha Di Ciano – Founder and Managing Director – Egami Style
Hosted by the Albany Chamber of Commerce, Great Southern Small Business Centre and Great Southern Women, not only did we hear wise words from six successful women, we networked with like-minded business women from Albany and around the region (oh, and ate Kooka's delicious fare all day long!). We also did a lot of admiring ... of Barb's shoes, Kate's pearls, Natasha's style etc... well we are women, after all!
As a proud sponsor of this valuable event, I'd like to share some moments below. Thanks also to the other sponsors; Mt Romance, Chimes, Skywest, The Rocks Albany, Albany Party Hire, Land Rover and Westpac for making the day such a success.

Now, this song is embedded in my brain because my daughter plays in ENDLESSLY but it really as appropriate for the slideshow - thanks to Jodie for the suggestion.
