BPW North Lakes’ Inaugural Awards Night a Huge Success!


Business and Professional Women North Lakes inaugural Awards Night recognises outstanding women in the Moreton Bay Region.

The BPW awards night, held at the new North Lakes Hotel, saw winners chosen from five categories by a judging panel of members from the community including local Labor MP, Chris Whiting (Member for Bancroft).

BPW Awards Night Coordinator, Kylie Stretton, who chaired the ceremony, said, “It was an extraordinary night with many inspirational women.”

Women from the region were nominated across a variety of categories including Youth, Student Bursary, Sports Achievement, Humanitarian, and Inspirational with judges also awarding a Recognition Award on the night due to the high standard of the nominees.

All winners received an exquisite bunch of roses, etched glass vase commemorating their category win, and a certificate in recognition of their achievement.

BPW North Lakes are proud to announce their winners:

BPW North Lakes Youth Award – Lauren Plaistow
Smile Home Loans Student Bursary Award – Jillian Stansfield
BPW North Lakes Sports Achievement Award – Tianah Potter
Century 21 North Lakes Humanitarian Award – Rochelle Courtenay
Bright Training & Employment Partners Inspirational Woman Award – Trish Springsteen
Judge’s Recognition Award – Kylie Burford


Nominees were required to write about their future aspirations and goals, achievements and interests as well as share one aspect about BPW that resonates with them. This information was provided to the panel of judges who interviewed each nominee and had the tough decision of choosing one winner in each category.

BPW North Lakes has gone from strength to strength since its charter in 2015. President Beck Parry and members welcome you to their monthly luncheon. BPW North Lakes meet on the third Thursday of each month at the North Lakes Hotel at 11:30am.
