    Connection is critical to all of our mental health and happiness. Being part of a dynamic and inclusive network is why our members join the Sunshine Coast Business Women's Network. Together we are stronger, wiser and more empowered to take the world by storm (or somedays, simply survive). Hence the introduction of Wind Down with SCBWN!

    Each fortnight throughout COVID-19 one of our Executive Members will host a casual Friday afternoon catchup. So grab your beverage of choice, some nibbles, a comfy couch and kick back with Network Development Chair, Paula Williamson!

    Paula is you go-to wonder woman when it comes to leveraging your trusted networks for ultimate business success. She knows all the best tips and advice when it comes to utilising relationships for personal business needs - including financier, accountant and solicitor.

    Join Paula and the rest of the SCBWN members as she shares with them how to utilise existing relationships for positive networking results.

    As the Senior Private Banker for ANZ Private Sunshine Coast, Paula looks after an influential group of high net worth clients who rely on her ability to connect them with specialists who can further support and enhance their wealth creation strategy. Her desire to provide an exceptional client experience is evident in her work.

    Originally from the Sunshine Coast, Paula has returned after spending her career to date in North Qld and Northern Territory. Paula notes that working in regional and remote locations has taught her to be resilient and resourceful. Throughout her banking career Paula has managed large teams with a particular focus on consistent service, sales delivery, compliance and operational efficiency. A change leader at heart, she is always looking for ways to improve day to day business and client experience through new ways of working.

    Paula is particularly committed to helping young women progress, whilst managing the challenges of a fast paced world and motherhood. A long term employee of ANZ, Paula feels the organisation shares her desire to help women succeed in business through flexible working practices and the support of women in leadership. Paula encourages all women in participation, flexibility and the desire for leadership.

    COVID-19 has placed many of us in situations we could never have predicted and have never experienced before.  By drawing on the knowledge and skillset of Ted, SCBWN is aiming to provide direction and confidence to our business leaders through this Wake up with SCBWN e-vent.

    Ted originates from a big family and is one of nine children.  He started his career in his family business and went on to hold senior leadership roles in small business and multinationals here in Australia and abroad. He is passionate about the Sunshine Coast community and leading us through this time of great stress for many.  Ted's aim is to help individuals and communities realise their potential by taking control of their own future.

    So if you are ready to take control of your future, register now to receive the e-vent link straight into your inbox.

    So that Ted can prepare to answer your questions accurately, if you would like to submit a question for Ted to research and answer, please email by Friday 5th June.
