After 3-and-a-half years, it is time to let 'new ideas flourish' and step down from my role as President of the Sunshine Coast Business Women's Network at the upcoming 2021 AGM.
It has been an honour and privilege to lead a dynamic executive and diverse membership, of outstanding women in business on the Sunshine Coast. The Network is in great shape and so it is time for me to step aside and make way for new leadership, to carry it forward to a new era.
It has been my immense pleasure to get to know so many wonderful businesspeople in our community who are committed to supporting the Network either through their generous sponsorship and donations or by supporting and volunteering their valuable time and expertise to empower and celebrate women in business to succeed.
During this time as President, the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network has
Corporate Australia has a focus to end workplace gender disproportion, so while there is still work to be done, the SCBWN stands firm to support women in business and provide a platform of encouragement to others.
I have been provided with the ultimate backing and unwavering support from my executive management committee over the past 3 1/2 years. This group of competent, savvy, professional and experienced business women are purpose driven, true to their values and committed to making a difference.
Continuity is as important as creating a fresh perspective and so I look forward to providing my support to the new executive management committee as they take the banner forward into a new era.
Thank you all for your friendship, camaraderie, and support. I look forward to seeing you again soon.
