It's been a stellar year so far for Women in Business with
$14,000 raised for charities - not to mention plenty of
inspiration, tips and techniques for achieving success!
The year kicked off to a great start with our first guest
speaker, Carolyn Creswell, headlining our March event. The founder
of Carman's, Carolyn has grown Carman's to become the
number one selling gourmet muesli brand on Australian supermarket
shelves, while maintaining a genuine work-life balance!
Her numerous accolades include being named the 2012 Telstra
Australian Business Woman of the Year and the winner of 2007 Ernst
& Young's Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Actively
involved with many charities, Carolyn is also a graduate member of
the Australian Institute of Company Directors and appears as a
mentor on Channel 10's Recipe to Riches.
Guests raised $8,000 in support of My Westmead's Newborn
Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Westmead
Hospital. This money will help to ensure the best possible
treatment is available for premature babies and babies in need of
Women in Business continued to go from strength-to-strength with
our recent June event featuring guest speaker, Alisa Camplin OAM,
sharing her tips for long-lasting success in life.
Well-known for her incredible Olympic journey to become the
first female Australian Winter Olympics medal-winner, Alisa shared
the range of skills and techniques that have enabled her to combine
a dynamic portfolio of sport, business and governance roles.
Almost $6,000 was raised through the event for Finnan's
Gift, which Alisa and her husband established in 2011 after
losing their first child to Congenital Heart Disease. Finnan's
Gift raises much needed funds for state-of-the-art equipment for
the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne.
Established in 2007, Women in Business aims to celebrate the
achievements of women, strengthen business networks and raise funds
for worthy causes.
