Institute of Managers and Leaders is delighted to announce the International Women’s Day Great Debate is back in 2018!

After this year’s unforgettable event, join us on Thursday 8 March 2018, to celebrate the achievements of women nationally and internationally.

This old school, long-lunch style debate sees six hand-picked, interesting and opinionated Australian leaders debating ‘The future is female’ in two teams (the negative and the affirmative), our equally interesting and witty MC, Gretel Killeen, who will be on hand to keep things clean, on-topic and, of course, to stop too much fur flying.

In short, it’s a whole load of debating fun over a longish lunch to celebrate an internationally significant, diversity-focused day.

MC – Gretel Killeen

Gretel Killeen’s career started as an accidental stand-up comic when she was attempting to present a profound poem. Since then she has written and performed comedy on radio, TV and live on stage across Australia. Gretel has hosted Logie Award winning TV, won a Mo Award for her writing and spent 17 years as one of Australia’s top voice artists.

She has written best-selling novels, written and directed a documentary on AIDS orphans in Zambia and entertained troops across the globe. She is a journalist, a humanitarian and a former school champ debater so she’s a great fit to once again MC this year’s AIM International Women’s Day Great Debate.




Watch this space, our distinguished debaters will be announced soon!
