RISING STARS, LEAPS OF FAITH AND KICKING GOALS
21st March 2019
Our South Australian members enjoyed a fantastic event generously hosted by Pernod Ricard Winemakers in the Barossa Valley on the 21st of March. With the learning theme of Career Management, our speakers shared wonderful real life accounts of the challenges, leaps of faith and the difficult decisions that not only affected our panellists’ careers, but also impacted their families. We heard some great stories of their ‘adventures’ and how they made the most of career development opportunities presented to them.
Moderator: Nadia Blaess – Talent & Development Manager
Speakers: Narelle Lane – Warehouse Shift Manager
Steven Scott – Winery Operations Manager – Australia
Ashlee Thackeray – HR Business Partner (Strategies & Projects)
The themes the Pernod Ricard team talked to were constructive culture, cross functional career change, following a passion, international careers and secondments, networking and relationship building and working in a male dominated field. Both speakers and guests were able to candidly relate their personal experiences of these factors when considering their professional history and future career ambitions.
Many thanks to Pernod Richard for kicking off the 2019 South Australian calendar with such a terrific and inspiring event.
