A unique event for women aspiring to Lead, Learn and Grow in a changing profession

As the tax profession continues to diversify and digitise, great leadership will be key.

But what makes a great tax leader? Is there a formula? Leadership is an interpretation which adapts to the needs of the environment through influence, collaboration and positivity.

Addressing these issues, this full-day program is for leaders, and for those who aspire to be leaders preparing to shape the profession of tomorrow

Focused on leadership in modern times, speakers from the profession, business, government and beyond will share their stories and inspire you:

  • Hear the lessons they learned along the way,
  • How they defied the odds,
  • How they reinvented their roles and businesses.
  • Gain practical advice, solutions, and innovative ideas to help you take control of your career.

As one delegate said last year, this congress will be 'Very Topical, eye opening and inspiring'
