Focusing on business

THERE is a new women's group in town, and its members mean business.Previously known as Capricorn Coast Business Women's Network and building on a foundation left by that group, the new Busi Women Inc is hitting the ground running with plans to deliver great events that will guide and educate businesswomen and aspiring businesswomen across the Capricorn Coast.Busi Women president Jacqueline Nagle said the group was building on the focus established by the previous committee to deliver events and relevant speakers, as well as launch professional development programs with a broadening focus to include business owners and managers, and to extend to women who are aspiring to management or business ownership one day."We have a large focus on empowering women through connection on the Capricorn Coast," Mrs Nagle Jacqueline said."While it is about networking, we are offering mentoring connection for those who plan to move into management and business roles."The group is about to launch a membership drive, which will have individual ($50) and small and medium business ($150 & $250) memberships - for those workplaces where there is more than one woman. Mrs Nagle said she would like to encourage women on the Capricorn Coast to join the group in embracing the opportunity to enhance their skill set, knowledge and share in their support.The new management committee is Mrs Jacqueline Nagle, vice-president (president); Toni Boatwright, secretary (vice- Pres); Kerie Woolcott, (Secretary) treasurer Lisa Lilleboe (Treasurer) and Helen Schweikert, Jillian Smith and Karyn Battersby. For membership inquiries or more information on the group, email busiwomen@lacoa.com.au or call Jacqueline Nagle on 0434 212 059 or Ms Boatwright on 0400 626 063.
