Award-winning charity founder to inspire business women
Guests at the next Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network breakfast can look forward to hearing from a range of award-winning speakers at the Maroochydore Surf Club on Tuesday, May 10.
Along with the 2010 Sunshine Coast Business Women of the Year Award winners, members and guests will hear from one of Australia’s most exciting and dynamic speakers, charity founder Bronwyn Sheehan.
Among the impressive list of achievements to her name, Bronwyn Sheehan launched The Pyjama Foundation in 2004, won Queensland Australian of the Year in 2009 and was a Telstra Businesswoman of the Year National Finalist in 2008.
The Pyjama Foundation focuses on making a positive impact on the lives of our community’s most vulnerable children by assisting in development of their literacy skills. Since its inception seven years ago, Bronwyn has inspired around 1,600 members of our community to become volunteer Pyjama Angels, who volunteer to spend an hour a week simply reading with a foster child in their home. Her program is backed by literacy experts such as author Mem Fox and has won several awards including an NAB state award for ‘excellence in volunteering’.
Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network President, Sue Willis says that the morning will be thought provoking and inspirational as guests enjoy breakfast hearing from a range of remarkable women.
“Bronwyn is passionate about her experience starting The Pyjama Foundation and we look forward to hearing of her impressive achievements and incredibly deep and genuine commitment to promoting the love of learning in foster children,” said Sue.
“Bronwyn speaks regularly at schools, organisations and corporate events covering a range of topics including leadership, literacy, business growth and children’s development and leaves her audiences feeling inspired and motivated with positive stories of accomplishment.”
With the nominations for the 2011 Sunshine Coast Business Woman of the Year Awards now open, the morning will also showcase the 2011 sponsors and pay tribute to the past winners.
This breakfast is proudly sponsored by Quest Community News and will be held at the Maroochydore Surf Club from 6:30am on Tuesday, May 10. Bookings are essential and close Friday, May 6. Call Chelsea on 0412 525 854 or visit www.scbwn.org.au to reserve your place.
