TWO DAYS, COUNTLESS CONNECTIONS

The FW Leadership Summit 2024 is a transformative event, where you’ll spend two days listening, learning and connecting with experts, leaders and change makers. It’s an opportunity to form personal and professional relationships that will last you a lifetime. 

Nothing at the Summit happens by accident. It unites an inspirational lineup of speakers and meaningful networking opportunities, worthy of the energy and enthusiasm of our audience.

Held during the same week as International Women’s Day, the Summit is an unmatched occasion to further your team’s professional development. Join FW, in-person at Shangri-La Sydney or virtually, on 4 and 5 March.
