That was 2017 in QLD!

“Everyone that you will ever meet knows something you don’t” – Bill Nye

Working on this premise, NAWO’s QLD Committee celebrated the year that was with a special networking event for their final gathering for 2017. Thanks to NAWO QLD Committee Member Jessica Taylor – Queensland State Manager, Distribution & Manufacturing, BlueScope Australia and New Zealand, for providing the event recap…

We picked a beautiful Brisbane day to host our ‘networking only’ event ‘That was 2017… Let’s celebrate’ on the 6th of December.

Our riverfront venue was the perfect setting for some networking, a skill and opportunity which many of our members have expressed as a key factor for attending our QLD Quick Bite events.

The concept was a purely networking event, the likes of which have not been done in NAWO QLD before. With an attendance of ~28 people our guests were greeted with a glass of festive champagne on arrival and encouraged to separate from their colleagues and make some new acquaintances. The chatter amongst the group was a very positive sign that great discussions were being had.

The event had one brief interlude to thank our members for their attendance and point out some key activities for 2018, as well as draw the ‘on the door prize’ – an esky of Colorbond® Steel goodies, including a selfie stick to capture the evening’s activities, courtesy of BlueScope.

Our members left with comments regarding their excitement for the themes and activities NAWO has planned for next year, and the committee felt it was a successful night. Certainly an event we would hope to replicate next year.

Sending out a warm welcome to new Silver member @KelloggCompany from the NAWO network! Such a great company and brand committed supporting women develop their careers and move the dial on gender balance in operations. #inspirationatwork #operations #genderbalance
