Description

Join Business Women Australia, supported by our friends and colleagues from the Hong Kong Business Association and the United Nations Association of Australia as we facilitate an all-female panel discussion moderated by HKABA Vice President, Winnie Lai Hadad. Our Panel Q&A will explore real stories, insights, achievements, opportunities and challenges in International Business.
When it comes to global business and cross border management, the importance of research, relationship development, communication and planning cannot be underestimated. Hear our experienced panel of female leaders - Dr Sandy Chong, Joanne Bradbury and Amanda Healy, as they share their diverse experiences in successfully developing cross border partnerships and achieving international goals. Demand for Australian products, food, wine, cultural exports, education, and intellectual services is continuing to grow in Hong Kong, China,the UK and Europe. Our impact as innovators, collaborators and ethical global citizens is key.

Dr Sandy Chong will provide an insight into the United Nation's SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) laying out a path to 2030 to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect the planet. 17 SDGs apply to all countries, including Australia. Developing strong relations with our partnering nations needs to be high on the agenda for Australian businesses. Hear how our panel of leading women contemplate these global goals in their endeavours as they share their stories.
Join us for this exciting collaboration between BWA, BDO Australia (WA), HKABA and the United Nations Association of Australia on presenting a panel of inspirational and experienced business women whose international expertise, insights and experience will be worth hearing.

This event is hosted by our generous sponsors at BDO Australia (WA). Canapes and refreshments will be provided including delicious 3drops wines. A further thanks to BWA national flagship event sponsors 3drops and Shadforth Financial Group and state sponsors, HHG Legal Group.
