Today at BPD Zenith, we celebrated International Women’s Day! BPD has many inspirational women across its global teams spanning all departments – board of directors, support, consultancy, delivery, sales, marketing, and administration.
To mark the occasion, BPD Zenith ANZ attended the Inaugural International Women’s Day Breakfast hosted by the Lauriston Foundation. The guest speakers included Janine Allis, Australian Business Woman and founder of Boost Juice. Carolyn Creswell Australian Business Woman and founder of Carman’s Fine Foods and Elise Gillespie, joint CEO of Bakers Delight.
There were many gold nuggets while hearing the panel speak but some takeaways for me were;
- Purpose: each and every one of us needs to find purpose in what we do, money will only take you so far.
- Education: School education is important but SELF education is what makes you a success.
- Failure: It is better to try and fail then sit on the sidelines fearful of failure.
- Mindset: Mindset is key in business. Learning to deal with challenges and obstacles is an important part of success.
A big thank you to Lauriston Girls’ School and to the panel for a great morning. Looking forward to next year!
