Thank you to all those who attended our recent 73 networking function, ‘Safeguard, Sustain, Support’ on Tuesday 22 August. With 7 inspirational guest speakers, each speaking for 7 minutes on 7 topics, this was a wonderfully warm and informative evening of fascinating presentations, followed by refreshments and a chance to personally meet the guest speakers.
Our guest speaker panel included Josh Ball from LifeFlight, who spoke about how his experience ten years ago as a patient requiring emergency medical evacuation led to his new career as the rescuer and nurse, as well as sharing some of the incredible success stories from the LifeFlight crew. Alissa Williams from Lissome Studios was next up on the 73 podium to share her passion for keeping us active, nimble and agile; followed by Steven Powell from CSR Bradford Solar who presented on the benefits of a clean energy future by switching to solar. Australian Sailing’s Ben Callard spoke about the research and megatrends identified to save organised sport in Australia, and Steven Tapsall from Eaton’s shared some of the innovative practices to safeguard the environment and student health by reducing chemical use in cleaning in schools. Past Student Nicola Callard has dedicated her career as a Psychologist to supporting families in raising resilient children and inspired with her tips and calm approach to parenting, followed by the final speaker for the night Belle McCarthy, from the SeaWorld Research & Rescue Foundation, who shared her passion for our marine life, beaches, environment and sustainability issues. Compered by 2016 College Captain, Anja van Aswegen, this was indeed a memorable night. We look forward to presenting further 73 networking functions in the future.
