International Women’s Day 2016 Breakfast
More than 70 women gathered at the Public Transport Authority (PTA) in East Perth on 8 March for a special Women in Media Breakfast to mark International Women’s Day 2016.
It was a sold out event with everyone keen to hear from international guest speaker Derede McAlpin, communications strategist and crisis communications specialist.
Derede shared her experiences from her time in the media and as a lawyer which have lead her to her current role as Vice President and chief communications officer for the Association of Corporate Counsel, based in Washington DC. Her key message to the audience was to trust your instincts and the need to define yourself rather than letting others define you.
Our thanks to the PTA for hosting us and to the Association of Corporate Counsel for introducing Derede to Women in Media.
