|Celebrating Women of Oz - - 4/12/2010|
On Thursday November 18th, 2010 Westpac in conjunction with Committee for Portland held a breakfast to celebrate "The Wonderful Women of Oz"
Guest speaker for the day was Regional Manager Westpac Retail & Business Banking, Sharyn Puncheon. Sharyn spoke on the importance of Customer Advocacy and if you get it right, the opportunities for business are limitless. Among the 50 guests who attended, Westpac was represented by all areas of the bank. As you can see by the photos we had a few brave local men attend to help celebrate the wonderful community of women that give so much to Portland and the surrounding districts. These girls are really looking forward to the 2011 calendar of events because supporting local initiatives such as this is important for all regional areas of Australia.
