DIY Leadership advice – be real!


Why do so many of us try to conform to what we think everyone else expects us to say or do?

What does it take to get comfortable in our own skin and be ourselves?

How does being an authentic leader help us to better manage work/life for ourselves and our employees?


Join NAWO and Bunnings for an afternoon packed with DIY Advice – practical, down to earth tips and stories on being an Authentic Leader

Keynote speaker Robyn Hudson, Bunnings’ State Operations Manager for NSW South/ACT, oversees 48 stores and over 5400 team members. Robyn will share her story of working her way up the Bunnings ladder, key learnings from the Bunnings Authentic Leadership Program and the impact of authentic leadership on a store’s culture and performance. This inspiring leadership journey will also include tips on how your leadership style can help you to manage a demanding role while still valuing family time and personal interests.

Don’t miss this opportunity to visit the brand-new Bunnings Warehouse at Gregory Hills! Standing at over 13,000m2 the warehouse represents an investment of over $41.6 million in the local community.

Site tour – enjoy a journey behind the scenes to learn all about the transformation to a new look Bunnings branded store and the measurable ways they achieve environmental sustainability through the “Less energy, less water and less waste” strategy.  *No PPE requirements.

DIY activity – it wouldn’t be Bunnings without a chance to get your hands dirty and learn a few tricks of the trade that could be helpful around the home!
