Here is a note from our CEO, Amanda Dobbie

Hello Members,

The annual Forum sponsored by Deutsche Bank was held last night at Sheraton on the Park. This the largest event on the WiBF calandar and this year we hosted a record 564 attendees. The panel discussion, featuring Maile Carnegie, Managing Director Google, Jayne Hrdlicka, Group Chief Executive Jetstar and Diane Smith-Gandar, Transfield was dynamic,inspirational and loaded with great tips.  A key message was back yourself and be prepared to take some risks. Other great tips included observe people around you,develop collaborate and influencing skills,be focused but not rigid about what you want,learn to have perspective,invest in your energy and be coordinator to orchestrate the expertise. There was something for everyone to take away from this talented panel. Moderated by Adam Spencer it was a humorous and entertaining evening. We were also able to partake in the Pozible crowd funding platform and an impressive $16,000 was raised for the Smith Family. Thank you to everyone.  

On 24th September ten talented undergraduate women, selected by the Universities WiBF has partnered with, were hosted for lunch by representatives of the AFMA board. The purpose of the lunch was to provide the girls with a connection to a senior leader in the finance sector early in their application process. Each of the candidates has committed to applying for at least 3 graduate positions in the 2016 programs. The girls were well prepared for the lunch and thank you to all the buddies who assisted in the preparation and to Natalie Carr from Serendis who provided some great tips. The lunch was a great success and we will continue to track this undergraduate cohort. The next forum is scheduled for first quarter 2015.

Our next events are as follows:
