I attended the VECCI Women in Business end of year celebration at Crown Palladium.
VECCI hosts a series of Women in Business events every year, giving members, guests and the general public the opportunity to network, and hear from a range of inspirational speakers discuss the challenges and triumphs of being a woman in business. This event had a panel of speakers: Kate Langbroek, Jane Kennedy and Rhys Muldoon who provided commentary on a range of issues that impact women in Australia. Topics covered included finding a balance between work and raising children, challenges they have faced in their careers, and if they thought there would be another female prime minister in the near future.
Giaan Rooney was the MC at the event. Giaan, a former swimmer, has been someone I have admired for a long time, it was great to be able to see her at the event too.
VECCI events are always well managed and presented. The provided an excellent example of a not-for-profit organisation who is able to conduct events in a manner that is similar to a corporate organisation. I enjoyed being part of the celebration and representing Syneka Marketing.
