One of our key note speakers from this year's Making a Difference conference in Brisbane held at PwC, Vanessa Bennett shares that her highest performing clients are not necessarily a the top of the corporate ladder but are taking control of their own career path and are not relying on their managers.
In Allison’s career she has worked towards striving for excellence not only for herself but for others in the industry. A long-standing member of Financial Executive Women and an Advocate to many, we weren’t surprised Allison was nominated for the Positive Progression of Women Award.

I have heard of schools giving every child a ribbon who is in the race and teams playing each other where no scores are taken. I understand the thinking behind this is to make everyone feel comfortable to play in the game and not making players less gifted feel like an outcast. But are we bringing up a generation who will not be able to take disappointment? At what age do we stop giving Ribbons to everyone and start building resilience?
After 25 years of Executive Search within the Financial Services Industry, Managing Director Judith Beck has announced FRG will no longer be recruiting.
Beck said she and her team will instead be focusing all their energies on FEW and the positive progression of women. It is time to focus on what she is really passionate about, which is helping women get from A to B to achieve their goals.
