What a fabulous morning it was Thursday 9 March when Women of Influence celebrated International Women’s Day 2017 at RACV Royal Pines Resort. It was so wonderful to see so many ladies (and a few brave men) enjoying themselves while also contributing to a great cause, so many in fact that the event was moved to the larger Ballroom to accommodate so many guests.
Everyone was greeted by the new Mini Countryman parked in the foyer, a weekend drive and stay at RACV Royal Pines was just one of the many amazing prizes.
We were very humbled to hear 16-year-old Katie talk about her life experiences, and how RADFLY through their support for Arcadia House have encouraged her to not only continue with her schooling, but also excel. What a brave young lady to get up and share her story in front of 200 people and for our guests to see an example of how funds raised at our events can help young lives.
The entire room was treated to a meditation session with the gorgeous Emma Jean Bridge – who championed the use of daily meditation to help us in many areas of our lives, and reminded us how important balance and flow are to our happiness.
Our keynote speaker Kylie Sprott, dispelled the productivity myth of ‘multi-tasking’ and shared some good evidence to suggest that ‘single tasking’ is a much more efficient way to work. She followed this up with some practical tips to help us achieve ‘flow’ to become more productive and creative at work.
The morning concluded with the raffle prizes being drawn and we were so very grateful for the continued support of our sponsors in donating such fabulous prizes. Our raffles raised $3,500 on Thursday morning – of which $2,500 was donated to RADFLY and $1,000 to UNWomen.
