Jacqueline Nagle was the president of the Busi Women's Network on the Capricorn Coast and organised Michelle Bridges to visit Yeppoon for a conference. She had finished a job in Brisbane when she found she had no mortgage, no big debts, her children were grown up and living elsewhere, and thought “what do I want to do when I grow up?”
It was this thought that led her to embark on a quest to organise The Simpatico Conference which features Reese Witherspoon, Elize Hattin, Naomi Simson, Lisa Lockland-Bell, Vicki Webster and Alice Haemmerle. She said it was time for a conference empowering women with all the discussions around the world about women in leadership.
