Update from Community Development Officer
Brisbane North and John Oxley successfully ran a stall at the Women of the World Festival, 2018 at Brisbane Powerhouse. Their display focused on women from around the world who were once Guides, check out the gallery of images
Women of the World (WOW) was a fantastic opportunity to increase the brand awareness of Girl Guides Queensland. We took several enquiries from potential Members and volunteers. Additionally we had the opportunity to connect with other organisations and meet some influential women and leaders. John Oxley and Brisbane North pulled together to share the duties of the event to ensure Girl Guides Queensland was represented at the WOW Festival. As you may have seen through social media, Dame Quentin Bryce and the Duchess of Cornwall were also in attendance at this prestigious event for women.
The display included a selection of women from around the world who were Girl Guides (Click Here to Download
). At times some Guide ingenuity was required to keep the display up as the wind was a challenging factor, however, I hope this display might give you some ideas for upcoming events. The Regions also cleverly used an iPad connected via hotspot or local wifi to complete online enquiry forms via www.guidesqld.org
Included in the table display were brochures and information about the programs Guides Queensland offers. The display was interactive and engaging and looked professional. If you have an event coming up or require assistance for a future event please contact Caitlin at email@example.com
