About Bright Blue
Bright Blue was established in 2010 after Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan was inspired by two very brave sick kids who had neuroblastoma, an aggressive type of childhood cancer. Over the past five years Bright Blue has raised over $1,500,000 and has grown to support various projects across Australia. In 2014, Bright Blue launched the Mongolia Project in collaboration with Interplast and Rotary.

About the Mongolia Project
Bright Blue has partnered with Interplast Australia to make a significant difference to the lives of sick kids in Mongolia. The inaugural event held this year, saw a dedicated team of Bright Blue supporters ride motorbikes around Mongolia over two weeks to increase awareness of this new project and
raise funds for a worthwhile cause.

Annamaria Weldon | The Lake's Apprentice

How do we describe a place? Annamaria Weldon offers an intimate portrait of the chain of lakes on Australia’s south-west coast which is an area that stands in as a case study of Yalgorup National Park.

The Lake’s Apprentice contains a suite of poems alongside celebrated essays and nature notes cognisant of current environmental research. It is also illustrated throughout with colour photographs depicting the lakes and their flora and fauna.

This elegant testimony collapses time, evoking the long past of the local Aboriginal peoples’ (the Bindjareb Noongar people) relationship to the wetlands, and thinks through to a resilient future.

It contains the nature essay, ‘Threshold Country’, that won Annamaria Weldon the inaugural Nature Essay Prize by the Nature Conservancy in 2011.

Breakfast by the Bay with Christine Christian 
Lessons from inside the gender revolution
Date: Wednesday 25 March
Time: 7.00am - 9.00am  
Venue: Banquet Hall
Price: Members $52.00 / Guests $62.00 / Table of 10 $580.00

Price includes a two-course sit-down breakfast and presentation by Christine Christian. 

After 15 years as chief executive of Dun & Bradstreet Australia, Christine thought she’d learnt everything there was to know about being a woman leader and a female ‘first’ in a C-suite role. But when she began to look up from the day-to-day of running a business, Christine saw that what had been true for her own career was by no means the norm for other women in corporate life.

It sparked a passion for gender equity in all spheres of Australian life and led her to take the helm of Chief Executive Women at a pivotal moment in what the next generation will come to see as a gender revolution. CEW has been at the fulcrum of nothing less than a complete transformation in the way the equal participation of women at all levels of Australian society is accepted and supported.

Join Christine Christian as she shares her insights into forging a leadership role for women in the business sector and thoughts on what must happen next to complete the gender revolution. In presenting her views, Christine will draw on her experiences as both a CEO and as President of Chief Executive Women.
