Forbes Australia editor-in-chief, Sarah O’Carroll, said “Last year’s exceptional Summit laid the foundation for a growing community of Forbes Australia women. From the insightful and raw stories shared on stage to the incredible energy in the audience and many new connections made, the Women’s Summit brings to life Forbes’ editorial pillar of ‘ideas that change the world’.

“I’m excited by the excellent calibre of this year’s line-up – including the fireside chats with Robyn Denholm and Sukhinder Singh Cassidy – the conversations that will unfold during the day and the ideas that will be ignited.”

The 2024 Women’s Summit will be the second event presented by Forbes Australia this year, with the Leadership Forum to be held on February 27.
