WOMEN IN BUSINESS AWARDS

Providing a platform to honor outstanding and successful business women and industry achievers, the 2014 Gold Coast Women in Business Awards was a fantastic networking opportunity. On October 31st Palazzo Versace was abundant in positive energy uniting and recognising inspiring women of all ages and backgrounds. In the lead up to the awards function at Palazzo Versace, shortlisted nominees were invited to attend networking events including the Julia Gillard ‘My Story’ book launch breakfast and celebratory cocktails at Bond University.

MY FAVORITE QUOTES BY EMPOWERING WOMEN:

1) Emma Watson: ‘If not me, who? If not now, when?’

2) Oprah Winfrey: ‘I was raised to believe that excellence is the best deterrent to racism or sexism. And that’s how I operate my life.’

3) Michelle Obama: ‘I am an example of what is possible when girls from the very beginning of their lives are loved and nurtured by people around them. I was surrounded by extraordinary women in my life who taught me about quiet strength and dignity.’
4) Hillary Clinton ‘I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfil my profession, which I entered before my husband was in public life.’

5) Coco Chanel: ‘The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.’

6) Angelina Jolie: ‘Figure out who you are separate from your family, and the man or woman you’re in a relationship with. Find who you are in this world and what you need to feel good alone. I think that’s the most important thing in life. Find a sense of self because with that, you can do anything else.’
7) Ayn Rand: ‘The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.’
8) Margaret Fuller:  ‘If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.’
