Who’s Who in 22, Business: Vicki Wood
Words by Kylie Knight

Business and Professional Women (BPW) Caboolture welcomed new president Vicki Wood in 2022, as the group continued to bring working women together and advocate for them.

Vicki has been a member of BPW for more than 15 years, while working in the media and communications industry.

She is now the Community Engagement Manager at North Harbour Marina, Burpengary East.

Vicki said BPW had helped her grow professionally and personally, with mentoring, support and networking opportunities.

She took over as President in August and, since then, the group has continued to run its popular monthly breakfast meetings, back community causes and initiatives and advocate for women’s equal rights, particularly on Equal Pay Day (August 29).

In her role as Community Engagement Manager at North Harbour, she works with a small team to organise events, combine with partners to sponsor local organisations and sporting groups, and network with the broader community.

In 2022, North Harbour partnered with Dolphins NRL and its brand is now displayed on the squad’s training kit – including Head Coach Wayne Bennett’s uniform.

The deal runs for at least the next two years.
