This month, the Women in Business Awards were held in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast, providing an opportunity to share the success stories of women in business.
Established by Karen Phillips in 2013, the Women in Business Awards program has now expanded to five regions across Queensland with support from the Queensland Government.
The 2019 winner of the Innovation & Technology Award for the Greater Brisbane region was Nicole Gibson, Director and Founder of Söka Australia.

The final awards ceremony for 2019 will be held in Toowoomba for the Downs region on 7 November 2019. All 2019 winners will be recognised at a reception with Minister Shannon Fentiman MP and Minister Di Farmer MP at Parliament House in November.
