Turia Pitt’s friendship with Illawarra Women in Business (IWIB) director Glenda Papac will see the inspirational mum return to speak at the peak women’s networking group for the third time.

Mrs Papac has announced November 23 as the date for the IWIB networking lunch with Turia Pitt.

It is the first time she has spoken at IWIB since she and partner Michael Hoskin welcomed the birth of their first child Hakavai Hoskin in early December 2017.
