Gina Field knows what it takes to succeed in a so-called man’s world.
She’s been showing how it is done for the best part of 30 years. The 2017 NSW Business Woman of the Year was one of the first women to solely own and operate a security company in NSW. That’s why it came as no surprise that Ms. Field was invited to share her story at a new speaker series launched in Wollongong last Friday by the NSW Government and the Sydney School of Entrepreneurship.

“I am so proud to be standing here today after being one of the few women to enter into the security industry more than 30 years ago,” Ms. Field said. “Challenging traditionally male-dominated fields and encouraging female entrepreneurship is so important for our society. “Today is all about encouraging women to achieve their dreams in the business world by sharing our experiences and insight.”
