TIME: 7.00am registration & coffee for a 7.30am (sharp) start. Event ends at 8.45am

VENUE: Crown Promenade Melbourne

THEME: Passion & Purpose in Packaging


FORMAT: Keynote speaker followed by a panel discussion, featuring influential and inspiring women working in the food, beverage and packaging industry. The event will not only be an ideal networking opportunity, it will also be an insightful forum demonstrating how women in our industry navigate their roles and responsibilities and make a positive contribution to the workplace.



202_WIP_Sonia-Friedrich_400pxAcclaimed inspirational speaker and behavioural economics expert Sonia Friedrich will deliver the keynote address, giving insight into the unconscious behaviours that cause shoppers to pick up a product.  She will show how understanding how the brain works and applying this into packaging and design can change behaviour choice.


Sonia is renowned for her clarity and has created models that apply Nobel Prize-winning knowledge and experimental research in behavioural economics to shatter entrenched paradigms and transform industry.


Sonia believes the opportunity lies in sharing brain knowledge across departments, which will create a closer relationship between packaging, design and marketing and impact bottom line revenue outcomes.


PANEL SESSION: Passion & Purpose in Packaging

Panellists will include co-founder of start-up The Better Packaging Company, Kate Bezar; and award-winning global philanthropist and co-founder of tna, Nadia Taylor (OA); and Brisbane-based plastics researcher and PhD Candidate at the University of Queensland, Nicole Garofano (MAIP).


Panel Moderator: Lindy Hughson, Publisher, PKN Packaging News | Food & Drink Business
