International Women’s Day 2019

Balance for Better

The Stretton Centre invites you to celebrate International Women’s Day lunch while highlighting and celebrating the contribution of local, successful business women in the northern suburbs of Adelaide.

The Stretton Centre is pleased to announce the International Women’s Day lunch will be held in conjunction with NOW Leadership Inc, with Co-Founder Lisa McAskill emcee of the lunch.

Lisa will be joined by her NOW Leadership Inc Co-Founders Elizabeth Ellames and Cherie Rowett to discuss with local, successful businesswomen what this year’s theme of #BalanceforBetter means to them and their personal business journey.

This is not your typical business luncheon. After enjoying a decadent grazing table and a glass of bubbles and/ or juice, you will be asked to join one of three NOW Leadership Inc workshop tasters.

36 Short Gin Experience

If you have time, and enjoy a sneaky gin, we recommend you stick around for a gin tasting from local Virginia-based distillery, Virginia Spirits, that produces the award-winning brand 36 Short.

Helen Lioulios of family run 36 Short will be leading a gin tasting experience, sharing 100 years of family distilling tradition with you.

In this 45 minute session, you will gain an understanding of the techniques and botanicals used within their gin production, while sampling each of 36 Short’s three gin variations. Helen will then guide you through ideal garnishes to compliment your choice of gin.

The experience will end with a complimentary gin and tonic while you enjoy a cheese platter.

Please note that this event will commence at 2.30pm and conclude at 3.15pm.
