Industry’s own inspire at Women in Drinks Victorian Chapter event

The Victorian Chapter of Women in Drinks held its second Chapter event of the year at Treasury Wine Estates yesterday featuring panellists Mia Lloyd, Thirsty Camel General Manger, Lucy Nandi, Major Accounts Capability Leader at Lion, and Janine Kennedy, IT Director from Treasury Wine Estates.  The event was opened by drinks Association Board Member, Sarah Parkes, and the panel facilitated by Carolyn Coon, Director of Corporate Communications at Treasury Wine Estates.

The topic was Cross Functional Career Change and the panel gave their advice to a sell-out audience on what to consider when planning your next role, and shared their experiences of moving roles, and even countries, as they followed at times unconventional paths to the leadership positions they hold today. 

The panel reinforced that not all career moves have to be vertical and that broadening your exposure to other areas of the business can help sharpen your own career direction, and increase the value that you can bring to an organisation. 

Both women in drinks Victorian Chapter events this year were sold out within 2 weeks with requests for additional tickets being turned down.  Women in Drinks Councillor Angela Burgum commented that “support for these events has been overwhelmingly positive by the Victorian drinks community, and with events as uplifting as this you can see why.”

Women in Drinks Chapters now run events in five states, with the inaugural WA event held in July.  For more information on Women in drinks visit or contact [email protected]
