Connections @ Drysdale – Ladies who power lunch

Our first Connections @ Drysdale lunch is on Thursday 26th May, hosted by the next generation of hospitality professionals training at Drysdale TasTAFE.

We're very excited to introduce two extraordinary women for a Q&A conversation. Amy Currant and Mary Dwyer of Impact Solutions International will share insights from their own career journeys, observations of challenges and opportunities experienced by women in the workplace and ideas of what we can do to support one another.
