It's been a crazy month here at SBE Australia with two bootcamps in two weeks for our SBE Australia by Springboard Enterprises Tech and Life Sciences Programs in Sydney and Melbourne.
We are so grateful to all the wonderful people in our community who have provided their time, energy and expertise to help these amazing women leaders in both 2019 cohorts.
More than 300 incredible people contributed to these programs; from our cohort selection screening, to interviews and panels during bootcamp, attendance and coordination of the many events that took place - and each and every one of them deserves a heartfelt thank you!
We held Cocktail Welcome functions at the private residences of US Consulate General Honourable Sharon Hudson-Dean in Sydney and the Honourable Michael Kleine in Melbourne. Along with special dinners hosted by EY and Pfizer with captivating speakers Louise Daw from MiPlan and Emma Bonser from Pfizer. There were also showcase presentation evenings hosted by Microsoft and Phillips Ormonde Fitzpatrick.
Special thanks to the teams at Corrs Chambers Westgarth, EY, UBS and Microsoft for hosting the Sydney bootcamp sessions and to FB Rice and Phillips Ormonde Fitzpatrick for hosting the Melbourne bootcamp sessions.
