Meet the Team

Angela Slater - Director - Communications and Marketing, QPAC

Background in brief - I have worked for over 20 years across sales and marketing disciplines for some of Australia's leading tourism entities including BridgeClimb Sydney and Dreamworld as well as internationally in the entertainment sector at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. My passion for growing the profile of iconic destinations and events led me to QPAC to head up Strategic Communications incorporating publicity.

Passions/Hobbies - A diverse mix of film, theatre, dance, dinner parties, non-fiction, running and retail therapy – not all at once. Oh and I somehow squeeze in being a soccer mum; whistle blow!
