Guest speaker: Clare Bowditch, Founder of Big Hearted Business
I think we can safely say that this years guest speaker Clare Bowditch was truly a delight to have at the annual Casey Cardinia Business Women's Lunch. Clare's warmth, intelligence and conversational approach certainly brightened our day and with her surprise rendition of her song 'Amazing Life', maybe even had us singing along.
It was great to hear Clare reflect on her journey to find her 'balance in life' as an acclaimed ARIA award winning songwriter, performer, radio broadcaster and Logie-nominated actor, not to mention founder of Big Hearted Business. She took the time to share some of the challenges and her learnings along the way, inspiring us to take a chance on our dreams, not to be stopped by our inner critic, tap into our creative shelves and understand that we don't have to be perfect. We just have to have passion for what we want and what we do each day.
This was further validated as we were joined by our gorgeous panel of local business leaders, Vicki Macdermid, Nikki Jurcutz, Allison Merrigan and Professor Helen Bartlett as they shared their thoughts, passion and insight into their individual careers and businesses.
We are also proud to announce that the Casey Cardinia Women’s Business Lunch was a proud supporter of the St John of God Foundation and has raised $1,429.80 on the day which will assist in supporting the Foundation as it aims to raise $5 million towards cancer and cardiac units at the new St John of God Berwick Hospital, bringing care closer to home in our community.
