Conversely discussion

Today, I was very lucky to be the guest presenter at a session on energy at Conversely.

Taken from the Conversely website,

Conversely aims to create discussion around topical and complex issues.  Operating at a grass roots level, we focus on bringing interesting and current speakers into our communities.

Our key target audience is stay at home mothers, or those working part time, who have an interest in learning, but little opportunity to do so.  Often highly educated, passionate and interesting, these women can be powerful opinion makers in our society, but are so often overlooked.   We aim to provide opportunities to learn, connect and engage with the world of current affairs, providing converse opinions and fascinating human stories.  All the time, donating ALL of our proceeds to the charities of our speakers choice.  No one gets paid.  We have no overheads or administration costs.

Our first chapter is based in Sydney’s East, with an aim to ultimately roll out chapters into other communities.

It was a wonderful session with much great discussion and some great questions. A great initiative which I encourage you to learn more about.
