WEConnect: a life changing opportunity for Melbourne’s entrepreneurs?

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to meet Sue Lawton the Director for Innovation with WEConnect International.  If you’re an entrepreneur and you haven’t heard about WEConnect yet, you need to!  This is one organisation that is truly changing the lives of women all over the world, in empowering them through the global supply chains of major corporations with serious spending power (such as global hotel chains, multinational consulting firms, product manufacturers etc).

WEConnect has been in Australia over the past year forging relationships with organisations that are ready and willing to incorporate women into their supply chains, in other words to buy the things that women entrepreneurs have on offer.

If you are a women-controlled business in Melbourne, you could get involved by coming along to this “Meet the Member Cummins” session.

Cummins is a corporation of complementary business units that design, manufacture, distribute and services engines and related technologies.

Shout out to the magnificent men at Manly Cycles (in Manly, of course!) who helped me out today. No, I haven't returned to my youth and bought a bicycle (though I did have a lot of fun on that bike like that time I cycled half way to Adelaide and back during the school holidays because - well - just because. And that time I cycled to the next town over to collect a new pet rabbit, who looked a little horrified when she realised she was to be the cargo transported on the parcel rack).
No, after the bicycle being my mode of transport to and from school for most of my primary and high school years, I don't care if I never ride another bicycle in my life.
But... the horse needed some bike tubes for his tie up post. So the men at Manly Cycles sorted that out for me, with a smile, and wouldn't even let me buy them a coffee in thanks. Big thumbs up!
