ENERGY, connection and motivation were all a part of the first incredibly successful event for Busi Women for 2013 - a sellout breakfast at Coffee Club Yeppoon Central last Wednesday morning.

Fifty-four women gathered over coffee and breakfast to hear about the committee's plans for the coming year.

Busi Women president Jacqueline Nagle said the first event for the year exceeded the group's expectations and was a reflection of the extensive work the committee had put in behind the scenes.

"With a new year also comes change, and the breakfast morning also saw the appointment of two new members to the committee," she said.

"Joanne Laundry of CEADS will step into the secretary's role, and Andrea Johnson from Terex Spatial will take up the role of membership co-ordinator."

"Both will bring skills to the table which will help us deliver the program for the rest of the year.

"Right now our focus is on securing all details for the upcoming conference, and getting people to the second of our professional development workshops - Get More Clients - to be hosted February 20.

"These workshops are exclusive members-only events and we're really looking forward to delivering them."

All membership inquiries can be directed to the committee at, or calling 0434 212 059, or 0400 626 063.

Free professional development workshops

A range of breakfast meetings and guest speakers

Cocktail making lessons (to add a bit of fun)
