Business values a focus at anniversary dinner

The power of identifying and staying focused on your business values was the topic for the latest Women in Business Regional Network dinner at Mount Barker.

Standing in at short notice as a presenter was Vasso Fessas of The Connected Leadership Co who uses NLP (neuro linguistic programming) to work with clients to develop their leadership style, balance their work and life and help them build better businesses.

The dinner was conducted in a workshop style with those in attendance being asked to reflect on their own business values and to identify strategies to ensure these values were realised and to stay on track.

The dinner also coincided with the fourth anniversary of the formation of the network which today includes more than 300 financial members across three states, including 12 physical chapters throughout regional South Australia.

Founder, Carolyn Jeffrey, said the network had recently launched two new initiatives which were proving valuable to regional women in business.  Through a grant from Regional Development Australia Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu & Kangaroo Island, the network has launched a coaching, mentoring and education program called the WIB Nook and is due to publish an online magazine, WIBChat, on November 1.

The next Adelaide Hills dinner for the network is on November 15.  The details will be announced shortly.
