Leading the Way, a women in leadership breakfast 20 August 2014
Almost 170 women and men joined us in the Grand Ballroom at SKYCITY Darwin for a women in leadership breakfast on Wednesday 20 August 2014. Guests were treated to an entertaining, light-hearted and honest panel discussion around the topic of women, leadership and overcoming challenges. We thank the Lord Mayor of Darwin, Katrina Fong Lim, Lia Finocchiaro MLA, Penny Egan FCPA and Tracey Hayes for their time and candidly sharing their experiences with us.
Thank you to CPA Australia for allowing us to partner with them for this fantastic event. A huge thanks must also go to major sponsor NAB, who showed invaluable support. Finally, a big thank you to everyone that attended, we hope you enjoyed yourself. To share one of Penny's favourite quotes - "If you aim at nothing you'll hit it every time".
BPW Darwin 2014 Ladies Ambrose Charity Golf Day
30 May 2014, Gardens Park Golf Links
Around 50 of Darwin’s business women converged on Gardens Park Golf Links for an afternoon of networking, laughs and a little bit of golf, all for a good cause!
BPW Darwin were proud to support Lifeline Top End, who provide much needed crisis support and suicide prevention services to Territorians. With the fantastic support of local businesses, our members and guests BPW Darwin were able to raise $1,500 for the cause. Raffle prizes were absolutely awesome this year and included a Nespresso coffee machine donated by our annual sponsor, Hays, and a stunning necklace donated by DiCROCO.
A huge thank you must go to our 2014 golf day major sponsors NT Automotive Group and CSG, our annual sponsor Hays, and hole sponsor ME Bank. The golf day would not be possible without the support of these businesses.
