Relationships and Power: Women’s Female Entrepreneurial Intelligence

What is power? Can we observe it? What is our own power like? How does power operate within relationships? How can we observe it within relationships? How can we use it positively and productively? How might these understandings assist communities to flourish? How can women’s entrepreneurial intelligence foster and nurture our existing intelligence/s? These are some of the questions that this workshop aims to answer, assisting participants to understand connections between power, space, and relationships. The workshop is also designed to assist participants in understanding personal power in enacting female entrepreneurial leadership, and how this form of intelligent leadership can be understood in ways that can consciously empower others.

I have had the absolute pleasure in witnessing Cecily’s vision for our organisation come to fruition over the last three years. As an elected Director to the Board for Queensland’s Remote, Regional and Rural Women’s Network (QRRRWN) in charge of the Membership portfolio, Cecily’s ability to look into the future and address the needs of our members, as a futurist has set our organisation up as a progressive, communicative women’s network. Comprising of women from a range of localities, both rural and regional, and from diverse businesses enterprises such as agricultural and financial fields, Cecily also focused on women’s wellbeing, recognising their needs in these areas and making sure they were met.

Cecily has the uncanny ability to foresee areas that need attention and deliver workable methods to ensure the smooth running of our organisation, and its membership well into the future. Through her thoroughly written and well considered guidelines for the organisation, our future is strong.
