|Women in Business Breakfast February 2017|
Our guest speaker this month is Rachael Cronin – Senior Manager – Strategy & Performance, Bendigo Bank in Capel.
Rachael started her career at a salary packaging firm following 3 years of a psychology degree. From a casual employee for the FBT year-end season, over a number of years Rachael moved to Operations Manager of three smaller companies of the group which included salary packaging, leasing and a licensee for financial planners. This role involved implementing new clients around Australia to train and explain the system, liaise with external companies and lead a small team. The management of the financial planning arm of the company lead to an interest in becoming a financial planner, so she remained in the group and joined a boutique financial planning firm. She enjoyed learning from the ground up in administration, to para planning and full advice. Rachael joined Bendigo Bank in 2008 as a financial planner wanting to work closer to home in the Dandenong Ranges in Victoria. However, joining Bendigo Bank had a bigger impact becoming more ingrained in community through volunteering and community engagement. She then moved to Bunbury in February 2012 to pursue love and life and loves the lifestyle of the South West. In September 2012 Rachael was appointed as Regional Manager for the South Coast, leading branches from Rockingham through to Augusta. This role involved working with volunteer directors and branches throughout this area for business growth and returning funds to their local community. This year, a restructure has led to her region changing to the Southern region overseeing Bunbury south to Albany. Rachael is married with a fur baby, Diesel the staffy and loves fostering dogs for SAFE whilst they are looking for their forever home.
Rachael will be sharing her experience in her career and her challenges to develop herself. She will also speak about the financial challenges of women and strategies to consider as well as the challenges women face in business.
Join other like-minded ladies for a fabulous morning of networking and inspiration.
