Network founder Carolyn Jeffrey and 100th foundation member Moira Were AM were recently the guests of Kangaroo Island Women in Business and the Kangaroo Island Business Hub to present at a Big Day In for local women in business.
The function included a full day of activities including presentations, meditation, a Welcome to Country and a dinner featuring karaoke.
Carolyn also had the chance to catch up with the network’s first Kangaroo Island member jewellery maker and artist Patti Blucher from By Blu.
Following the bushfires in early 2020 Carolyn had offered 10 free memberships to those impacted by the fires, but due to other priorities at the time, they were not taken up. She has extended the offer again and is inviting local Kangaroo Island women in business (irrespective of the bushfire impact) to apply to receive their first year of membership at no charge.
Applications for the free memberships close on 31 December 2020. The applicants will then be placed into a draw and the 10 winners chosen at random.
In addition, Carolyn has advised that, in recognition of the extra tough year for islanders, all Kangaroo Island women in business will have access to a 50% off membership offer for 2021, when it is hoped regular events will also be staged commencing in February.
“I’m excited to be working with Susi Whitehead from the Kangaroo Island Business Hub, Maria Waters from the Women’s Dinner Group and members of the KI Women in Business group to look into options to have regular physical events and to be offer further support,” Carolyn said.
“In the short time I was on the island I became aware of a great need for more support for businesswomen to not only promote the businesses and assist with their development, but to also provide emotional support too to boost personal confidence levels.
“I’m hoping we can get local women actively involved to lead a chapter of the network on the island to add to the 10 we already have supporting women in business in regional areas across South Australia.”
