Sydney and Melbourne: Free $77 ticket to “Because I’m a Girl” Business Breakfasts run by Network Central

Simply post your comment here, about your number one tip or story about what you think women bring to business – just because you’re a girl. Best ones received by this Friday win the tickets!  Many of you are familiar with Network Central events – they’ve been around connecting women in business for 10 years now!  First up in Sydney on the 26th of August, from 7-9am is “Because I’m a girl – the state of the worlds girls” Business Breakfast at the Queen Victoria Building Tea rooms. The wonderful Wendy McCarthy AO is speaking, and for those of you not familiar with her very impressive career, Wendy has been there and done that when it comes to leadership, and is one of my personal heroes.

Following this in Melbourne on September 7th is the  “My Brilliant Career – Advice to a younger self” Business Breakfast, where you can hear from a great line up of successful leaders and meet a room full of more of them!

The panel includes: Kirstie Marshall (Vic MP and Champion Aerial skiier), Margot Spalding (Owner, Jimmy Possum Furniture and winner of the Telstra businesswoman of the year Award) and Zara Ritchie (Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers) and Sandi Givens (speaker, teacher, trainer and moderator for this event).

What are the lessons you’re teaching your kids? We took the opportunity of a holiday long weekend to visit my mum interstate as the timing of the trip coincided with my son’s favourite AFL team battling it out against my mum’s beloved team. Perhaps only those of you with the love for AFL will appreciate why we’d plan a long distance trip around a game of footy, but suffice to say it was a passion project! With every ounce of anticipation, the game was a tough, tight duel and could easily have gone either way. Yet when the final siren sounded, it wasn’t our team that was smiling. It sure is tough for a 10 year old boy to sit within a crowd 41,000+ people all cheering for the opposite side. It was tough for him to see the exhaustion and disappointment on the faces of the players he adores. And yet, it’s so important for him to learn that his team won’t always win. There’s so many lessons in that, but the one I chose to instil is that you won’t always back the team that wins but you’ll always back the team that you love. That’s why I asked him to wear his team colours home the next day, and show his support even when the chips are down. That’s the kind of commitment I want my son to learn and the kind of team player I want him to be. PS. #gotheGiants @GWSGiants #neversurrender ... See MoreSee Less

I haven’t been here in a while as the writing has been on hold. But I was reminded today that there are things in our life that light us up. That might take us out of our comfort zone but, once you sit with it, bring you both joy and a sense of “I can do this” achievement. These moments are such a gift. So I’m curious, what’s your special thing that lights you up?

Despite (or in spit of) my professional career, these moments for me normally involve my horses. I’ll never be an equestrian Olympian, but I take great pleasure in all the lessons my horses teach me. They remind me that it’s a team effort, we’re in it together, and that if I’m prepared to give a little bit more, they will too. That’s true whether we’re on the ground taking care of their feet, or grooming, or when I’m atop riding as one. Two hearts one team.
It’s hard to describe the adrenaline and joy they bring to my life. But I’d love to know, what lights you up??

And so, maybe time does change some things. Or women do.
