Industry: Corporate Events
Network Central, the mentoring and networking organisation for women in management are celebrating 15 years of mentoring, networking and leadership training in Australia.
Sydney, Australia (PRUnderground) February 15th, 2014
Network Central, the mentoring and networking organisation for women in management are celebrating their 15th birthday on February 20, 2014 at a luncheon event to be held at Doltone House Hyde Park Sydney. The lunch includes a panel discussion with Elizabeth Ann Macgregor OBE, CEO of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Christine Bartlett, ex CEO of Jones Lange lasalle and Maria Halasz, CEO of Cellmid Technologies. The panel will be moderated by Georgina Dent, editor of Women’s Agenda. MC for the event is Catherine Fox.
Kim McGuinness, founder of Network Central and regular commentator on networking and mentoring, believes strong networks and appropriate mentors are key to women’s success.
“It’s in these supposedly threatening economic times that networking can really come into its own as a tool for success. Being seen and heard and making valuable connections will give you the edge over your less visible competitors. Tempting, as it may be to dump networking in your cost cutting efforts, it is not good sense for either staff morale or business.“ said McGuinness.
“It is quite remarkable how one network can create so much goodwill and form true collaborative relationships for its members. It is tremendously inspiring to see the mutual mentoring relationships that come out of what Network Central does, not only for individuals but for companies who want a connected and productive workforce.” Renata Cooper, managing director, Forming Circles Pty Ltd (member and sponsor).
“So when many businesses are pulling back from staff spending, those who realise the value of their people and continue to motivate and support them will be the clear winners.” McGuinness said.
McGuinness says it is more important than ever to establish your networks and create “quality connections.” “Being a master networker is about building deep, authentic relationships”, she says.
“Regardless of the modern age of online contact, people still choose to do business with those they like and have an affinity with”.
Media are welcome at the event, please contact Kim McGuinness to book.
