Do You Want to Meet Your #WWGI Transition Ambassadors? Episode 4

Women are in some kind of transition for most of their careers.

Whether its transition to or from maternity leave, transition to executive leadership, transition to business ownership or transition to board roles.

The vision for #WWGI is for women to have access to advice, mentors, sponsors during these transitions. I also want women to have safe spaces & places to extend their strategic network & have some fun!

WWGI is all about action and creating positive outcomes for women.

That’s why a powerhouse line up of female businesswomen, entrepreneurs & Board Directors have been assembled for the next #WWGI event for women.

These businesswomen, entrepreneurs & Board Directors are going to facilitate several rounds of speed coaching circles, then all join WWGI founder, Michelle Redfern, on stage for QANDA, #WWGI style!

All your questions about your own transitions past, present and future will be answered.

Circle #4: Women on Boards, how to get there, will be facilitated by Merryl Dooley & Samantha Hunter, experienced executives and Board Directors.


Merryl Dooley is Executive General Manager of People, Culture and Communications at Tabcorp as well as Board Director for Williamstown Football Club. 

In both roles, Merryl is responsible for the achievement of business strategy, financial outcomes and to be a role model for sound governance practices.

She is a regular speaker at local and regional industry conferences and draws upon her more than 25 years’ of experience in corporate and governance roles to educate business people about engagement with employees, customers and stakeholders can transform an organisation.
