MGI Adelaide hosts the first #SuccessHerWay event of the year around the theme “Breaking the Barriers to Success”
MGI Adelaide hosted the first #SuccessHerWay event of the year at the National Wine Centre of Australia. This year’s Success Her Way events are devoted to a series themed around “Breaking the Barriers to Success”.
In 2019, MGI Adelaide Director Angela Robins and other members of the firm identified a need to build a community around supporting each other and the strong female leaders in their network and client base. From that idea Success Her Way was born.
Hosting quarterly events where female business owners come together to network, share their personal stories of success, work, motherhood, family, etc. are at the centre of the idea behind Success Her Way. These events give these women the opportunity to promote their businesses while networking with others in different industries.
Each event incorporates numerous expert panellists and presenters to educate and support their fellow businesswomen. In previous events we identified different pathways to success, explored the marketing wins and cancel culture coming out of social media, issues in family business and harnessing family strengths for success, along with valuable social time to chat and reflect with others.
'Breaking the Bias' - the first of this year’s series

Guests enjoyed a delicious breakfast while they were given a welcome introduction. The event had the participation of an expert speaker and panellists sharing their insight into the origin of unconscious bias, and how it manifests in the workplace.
