Entries have closed for this year's Mitre 10 Trade Keynote Award and the team at Women in Trades have had a wonderful time reading all the entries.
There were some strong entries this year and we wish all of them could be finalists - it is inspiring to know so many women are really making a go of life on the tools and loving (almost!) every day of it. So a huge thank you to all our entrants for their hard work and commitment to making a go of it in non-traditional industries.
We are very pleased to announce the following fantastic women as the 2019 finalists:
- Kellie Hinton of Advanced Plumbing & Drainage Ltd
- Flora Rivers of Johnstone Construction Ltd
- Jahna Stephens of New Zealand Steel Ltd
The judges are currently assessing the finalists and an announcement on the winner will be made next week.
The winner will receive one on one professional coaching with Diana Thomson of Speechmarks to craft a powerful presentation about their journey and learn public speaking and presentation skills. They will then give the Keynote speech at our annual Women in Trades conference held at Proclima Hub, Auckland in August. To find out more about this wonderful event visit our event page.
Good luck to all the finalists!
