Combining work and play for a good cause

Often we are presented with an opportunity to do something good – like fundraise, or contribute to a charity, in the company of our peers.

Just last week, the Dolphin executive team bought tickets to an event arranged and sponsored by BJ Ball, in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Highlights of the evening include being regaled with AFL and VFL stories by David King , listening to Brigitte Duclos interview a cancer survivor , and a wine glass that magically filled itself each time I turned away . Those servers at the Sandringham Yacht club are part Ninja.

Really great to meet the Bambra Press gang , all looking very supportive with their pink shirts , or pink ties, and the lovely Vicky and Co from Australian Paper.

And of course meeting and having a moment to chat with the gracious Catherine Doggett about International Print Day was just spectacular.

Who knew networking could save Rhinos ?

Saturday 22 March was our first Networking Tea ; aptly named the Autumn Networking Tea.

A resounding success on all fronts despite some minor hiccoughs at the venue with the start.

By all accounts , all the ladies and gents found good value in the Tea; not only in the interesting networking opportunities that presented, but also in our guest speakers who offered many helpful tips and interesting information for the home-based or small business entrepreneur. Much appreciation and thanks go to Barb Scott from Admin Angels and Gail McTaggart from GM Mortgage Services for sharing their thoughtful insights. And a hefty thank you to Sheridan Morris from Well Said & Associates, our MC for the day.

Ultimately though, the goal was to raise awareness about what’s really going on with Rhino Poaching, and to take the picture which is so pivotal to the Breaking the Brand campaign. Our 35 strong speak out for Rhino’s “selfie” (pictured below), courtesy of Melani’s Photography.
