Join us as we listen to 3 top female entrepreneurs (including our Founder Belinda Jennings) talk about how they’ve each done their part to shake things up in Adelaide’s business community.
On Tuesday, 27 May 2014 from 5:30 PM to 8:00pm at Flinders University, Victoria Square, Adelaide, SA
Entrepreneurs In Conversation (EiC) is a Speaker’s series concentrating industry engagement educational efforts through the New Venture Institute, providing a tangible link to entrepreneurs and business leaders acting as inspiration for students, faculty, business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs. We believe every entrepreneur has a great story, the monthly events bring together entrepreneurs from Adelaide, and Australia wide, to discuss openly their entrepreneurial journey, taking an intimate look into the success, failures and personal journey of the speakers.
The fifth event in our ‘Entrepreneurs in Conversation’ speaker series features our Founder & CEO Belinda Jennings, Lucy Cornes (She Shopped) and Leila Henderson (NewsMaker). They have worked hard, taken risks, thought outside the box and overcome personal and professional obstacles to get where they are.
These three ladies will share their wisdom on business and building a community with your customers and clients. Come and share some delicious treats, a glass of vino and great conversation.
