COVID-19 has highlighted the ability of manufacturers to innovate and evolve, bringing with it a resurgence of locally produced products.

Attracting, retaining and promoting highly skilled women into this sector will be a key to further innovation and growth.

You are invited to join us for our fourth year of Women in Manufacturing celebrations.

We will be discussing Queensland’s manufacturers ability to innovate, the impact a strong manufacturing sector has on the economy, and the opportunities and importance for women to contribute to and actively shape the future of the sector.

Learning & Innovation

Gold Coast businessmen and women are invited to hear how Nicole runs several businesses: 

  • Laser Tag in a Box, a nationwide rental business
  • Laser Skirmish, a South East Queensland entertainment company with three venues (Gold Coast Hinterland, Mt Cotton & Mt Crosby) 
  • Battlefield Sports, a world-leading manufacture which has exported into 55 countries.

Discover how Nicole balances running these businesses and being a Mum of two kids.

"I am also keen to help other people start or expand their own businesses. To help others achieve this I wrote a book called 'Right on Target'," she said. The event will also feature other panelists, Katrina Main from Cawarra Cosmetics and Marcia Edwards from the Cryogenics Group.

The business breakfast event will be facilitated by Mel Ireland, Policy & Project Lead, Ai Group.

Women in Manufacturing

Conversations and insights will cover topics such as the future of manufacturing, innovation, and the importance of women to industry's growth.  

Solving manufacturing problems needs diversity of thought, skill, and background. Queensland manufacturing businesses contribute more than $20 billion to our State’s economy. 

Around one in four manufacturers in the State are female-lead and we hope to see this number grow through our ‘Women in Manufacturing’ initiative and other programs. It is important to encourage women to contribute to this evolving sector. 

Women in Manufacturing networking seminars and networking events highlight the importance of mentoring the next generation of women in industry.
