The SBIA are proud to announce their inaugural ‘Women in Industry Breakfast’ event in conjunction with the SBIA Awards and Round Table on the 24th of October, 2019.  

The event, the first of its kind for our association is designed to unite and promote Women in the Surf and Boardsports Industry, and is open to all women, men and guests of SBIA Members. This is an all-inclusive event which will showcase a keynote speaker and panelist discussion consisting of industry personalities and external innovators, creators and achievers. 

It is also with great pleasure that we announce our keynote speaker as Terry Hawkins, Founder of Progress Retail.   Friend of the SBIA, Terry is an award-winning speaker, entrepreneur and author. Those of you who have been lucky enough to witness one of Terry’s presentations, can attest to the fact, that not only is her content engaging and educational, her energetic disposition, humour and sharp wit is a definite crowd pleaser.

Following Terry’s keynote, there will be a panel discussion consisting of women from a diverse range of backgrounds, talents and expertise.    The good news keeps on coming, as we are very grateful to our panelist host, Kimberly Reynolds, Volcom Australia’s Creative & Digital Content Marketing Manager for taking time out of life and career to run this panel.
