WOW Women are a great supporter of empowering women and especially supporting young women achieve their dreams through education. It is our passion and belief that only through education can we encourage, inspire, strengthen and nurture our next generation to create the ultimate females of the future.
By sponsoring events such as GV brain and bringing exceptional and motivational women such as Layne Beachley to the region, WOW Women help our young regional women pursue their dreams. This was an incredible opportunity to listen to a 7 times world champion and such an inspirational speaker and network with your local community of women.
Layne Beachley’s exploits are astounding, her attitude unwavering and her achievements inspirational.
Layne Beachley AO is widely regarded as the most successful female surfer in history. The only surfer, male or female, to claim six consecutive world titles (1998-2003). Layne then went on to win a 7th world title in 2006 before retiring from the ASP World Tour in 2008. Now as a motivational speaker, trainer and mentor Layne inspires individuals and teams to clarify their vision and achieve sustained success.
On Australia Day 2015, Layne was awarded an Officer of the Order of Australia for her distinguished service to the community through support for a wide range of charitable organisations, as a mentor for women in sport and as a world champion surfer.
Layne achieved yet another first in Australian sport by becoming Surfing Australia’s new Chairperson in the latter part of 2015. She is the first former female World Champion of any sport to take on the role as Chair of a National Sporting Organisation.
Layne is also the proud Founder and Director of her own charity, the Layne Beachley Foundation, “Aim For The Stars”, fostering courage and self-belief in young girls and women to achieve their dreams in a diverse range of pursuits including science, business, environment, sport and the arts.
Her exploits are astounding, her attitude unwavering and her achievements inspirational.
