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.

Anna's words are how she lived her life. She has been an amazing inspiration, a wonderful support, a gracious mentor to me throughout my career. So many of us counted her as a girlfriend to look up to, and her legacy will live on in the many women she has inspired to live their very best life.

I will miss her.

Sending condolences to Reggie, Anna's beautiful mum Trish and adoring sisters, and all of her extended family.
