“What does a masterclass in leadership for women in ICT and digital roles involve? Surprisingly all the things leaders are grappling with today: effectiveness that draws its energy from you whole self, vulnerability, thinking from a strengths based perspective, letting go of perfection, anchoring your values to your work style, communicating and being present, setting boundaries and creating an environment of innovation. Easy! Claire Harrison makes it seem tangible and achievable. She inspired 12 women to jump into a new way of working and it starts with small steps.”
Commander, Victoria Police
“Claire from ThriveU is an insightful leader who has a wealth of knowledge and coaches with a naturally inspiring style. This work is valuable for aspiring and experienced leaders alike.”
Team Leader, Suncorp
“What a stimulating experience!! The masterclass was a perfect mix of topics, people, shared experiences and stories. Claire is a brilliant coach and excellent facilitator. Highly recommended!”
Business Systems Manager, ANZ Bank

The Only Event You’ll Need to Attend this Year

Why spend your time and money on multiple events in one year when you can go to one place to get decision makers from retail through to e-commerce, supply chain and fulfilment?

Why February?

We know retailers are busy. From previous research, retailers indicated that February is the best time for learning. This is a pause from major Christmas campaigns. This event is a great way to kick-start the year after time off and an opportunity to be inspired, form partnerships and prepare for the end of the financial year, and year to come.

Why Melbourne?

You’ll be positioned close to the mainstage hosting the top thought leaders in the industry – some who are travelling across the globe to share their stories. These prime positions are exclusive and will host the highest level of delegate traffic.
