Rewriting the Playbook: Meet Australia’s Power Businesswomen

Announcing The Empowered Woman 2020’s Speakers

Chosen for their ability to drive change, the women speaking at The Empowered Woman 2020 represent the diversity within Australia’s business landscape – disruptive entrepreneurs and high-level executives, as well as those transforming legacy businesses.

Regardless of their backgrounds, these women are defying stereotypes and changing the way business is played. Presenting the key speakers of The Empowered Woman 2020.



Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton started Sass & Bide as a stall on London’s Portobello Road Market. Growing the brand into an iconic Australian fashion label meant that Sarah-Jane needed to raise her game as a leader. Her presentation will focus on leadership strategies to develop empowered, high-performing teams for a fast-growing business.



Sandra tackles social problems that collide with business interests as a global executive. The gender pay gap is one such problem that when solved can create a win-win situation across the board. Her keynote focuses on addressing this issue by teaching women how to determine their value and negotiate a fair deal.



Business maverick and book author Justine Troy knows all about building a brand that makes the world sit up and take notice. Her talk will center on the power of resilience in business – learning how you can power through doors being shut in your face and come out swinging!



Pippa belongs to the third generation of Baché women to hold the position of CEO at Elle Baché. The company has bold beginnings when Madame Elle Baché dared to wax her legs in one of Australia’s most loved stores, David Jones, to get her product stocked. Since then the company has grown to 150 franchise locations. Pippa will be discussing the benefits of being bold and finding your authentic self.



Eliza took over leadership of All Saints Wine after the unexpected passing of her father (the previous CEO). She was three months pregnant, had no real understanding of how to do the bookkeeping and was surrounded by people doubting her ability to keep the organisation afloat. She experienced a steep learning curve and now successfully runs the company. She’ll be talking about this journey and how you thrive when thrown in the deep end.

Power Discussions

The Empowered Woman 2020 will also feature power women executives who are transforming organisations with their unique brand of leadership in a lively panel discussion.
