First Executive Women Series of 2017: International Women's Day

    NSW  | 

    This International Women’s Day, on 8 Match 2017, the French-Australian Chamber of Commerce hosted our first Executive Women Series event of the year.

    Frank Demoiseau, CEO of Offis Multi-Cloud Services and Founder of Givematcher chaired the session, interviewing our speakers:


    Catherine Jacob, Founder & Managing Director at Footprint Consulting Ltd

    Niamh McPherson, Partner, Consulting at Deloitte Australia

    Florence Motte, Managing Director at SPF Diana Australia

    Christelle Santelli, Principal of Innovo Legal

    These four inspirational women shared their own different experiences of their individual journeys to success. Throughout the course of the panel discussion, we heard about the various challenges that women might experience during the course of their careers and in the workplace. Our speakers also addressed numerous positive ways of changing perspectives, making the most of opportunities, educating colleagues and employers, as well as the importance of self-belief to achieve a fulfilling and successful career.

    We also had the pleasure of welcoming Sophie Janssens, volunteer and ambassador for Dress For Success. Dress for Success Sydney is a registered charity that outfits disadvantaged women free of charge, in high-quality professional attire and provides practical advice in preparation for job interviews. Sophie gave us a great insight into the fantastic work that this organisation does for women across Australia, and introduced us to their current campaign for International Women's day: "Empower Hour’’.

    The French-Australian Chamber of Commerce would like to thank warmly thank all our speakers for contributing to this unique event, and of course our kind sponsors: La Vie & Belle for their delicious catering, and Fleur de Flo for providing the beautiful bouquets of flowers.

    Many thanks to Deloitte for welcoming us and hosting this event.
