WOMEN will be invited trackside on the opening day of this year’s Australian Grand Prix as part of a new business-focused event designed to showcase how thrilling and addictive this pinnacle sporting event can be.
Madam Wheels, an Australian-based resource for women who love luxury cars, has partnered with the Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) for the “Women Driving Leadership” event designed to entice more corporate and entrepreneurial women into the exciting world of motor sports. Formula One is attracting increasing numbers of women into senior leadership roles and they have been instrumental in lifting the popularity of the sport. The Women Driving Leadership event seeks to celebrate those successes, with the AGPC bringing in some of the heaviest hitters from its global Formula One team.
They will form part of a strong lineup of women participating in a panel discussion on the business of fast cars which Hayes will moderate. “I’m humbled to have been invited to be part of this AGPC event which is all about promoting women in their efforts to make an impact in whatever field they’re working,” Hayes says.
Located at the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit, Women Driving Leadership will include a breakfast and part- or full-day program options, featuring the following keynote speakers:
* Ellie Norman – Global Director of Marketing and Communications, Formula 1
* Chloe Targett-Adams – Global Director of Promotors and Business Relations,
* Jessica Dane – Commercial Operations Officer and Team Co-Owner, Triple Eight Racing Engineering
* Kate Peck – Network 10 reporter and media personality
* Jacquie Hayes – Founder and Director, Madam Wheels
