The National Foundation for Australian Women and the Significant Women’s Network share a similar ethos in strengthening leadership development for women. This evening the organisations held a dinner and discussion evening with Kelly O’Dywer, the Member for Higgins and Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer.

Kelly discussed the need to promote gender equity through addressing inequities in taxation and the Government’s role in tackling the ongoing issue of domestic violence.  The discussion provided an opportunity to explore how gender inequity can be addressed through the Commonwealth Government and society.

Waterman Business Series – Defining your Focus

By | Advice for Businesses | No Comments

The Waterman Business Centre is located in Melbourne’s south east, providing shared business facilities within this rapidly expanding part of Melbourne. The Waterman Business Centre hosts a fortnightly business networking session, aimed at fostering collaboration and business growth. The networking event follows a unique approach, with three distinct sections. Firstly, a presenter shares a topic, followed by participants being allocated to groups to discuss the topic in further depth and concluding with everyone coming together and sharing their knowledge.

This morning’s topic was Focus, identifying the need for business owners to articulate their core value, rather than spreading themselves too thinly. The conversation enabled business owners to discuss what focus means to them and how this clarity has assisted in the development of their businesses. The format of the Waterman Business Series facilitates a sharing of knowledge, enabling participants to learn from each other.

The event series is a great example of how business networking can facilitate collaboration and greater knowledge.
