I’m Totally Awesome at That!
NAWO NSW kicked off 2019 with a sumptuous early morning breakfast hosted by Kimberley-Clark Australia before a warm welcome from Tina Busch, VP Human Resources APAC and a thoroughly engaging mini workshop by Elaine Krek on how to become more ‘dangerous’ by working to our strengths.
Through some careful planning and impeccable timing, Tina was able to join us after having just flown in from overseas, to share her story on progress toward gender diversity journey at Kimberly-Clark Australia. Tina was very proud to tell us that diversity is part of their operating strategy and this year they have already achieved their 2020 goal for 30% representation of women in leadership, in fact they hit 35%!
Tina shared a few of their key diversity strategies including:
Tina was also quick to add that they still have more work to do.
Next up was Elaine Krek, founder of Prism Performance and facilitator of the new NAWO Professional development program – The Leadership Workout. This event was a fabulous ‘taster’ for the full day workshop coming up in April.
Elaine’s presentation was packed full of videos, diagrams, practical frameworks and exercises so that everyone walked away with a better understanding of their strengths and key actions to take back to the workplace.
There were many priceless gems Elaine shared with us such as:
Elaine’s parting note was a reminder we are not perfect but we are talented!
It was a great start to 2019 and we are looking forward to a year packed with new experiences and people to meet. One of our members said “I love these Quick Bite events – they are just as good if not better than any conferences we go to”! We would love to see you at our next event at Michael Page on 2 April 2019 – register now!

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them. pic.twitter.com/N7YxjyZ7Ys
