Up Close and Personal Lunch with Sue Boyd
Date: Thursday 30 October
Time: 11.45am - 2.00pm
Venue: Formal Dining Room
Price: Members $62.50 / Guests $72.50 

Price includes a two-course lunch and presentation by Sue Boyd.

Sue Boyd has a BA and Dip Ed, as well as an Honorary Doctorate of Letters from UWA.

In 1969, Sue was elected the first female president of the UWA Student Guild. Student riots in the US and France  and a tidal wave of protest against Australia’s involvement in Vietnam made students aware of their power to make significant changes in the University and society. There was a readiness in government and University administration to accommodate their demands. It was a heady time for Sue to be a student leader, and the networks made, and experiences gained during this period, laid the foundation for her fulfilling diplomatic career.

Sue served in the Australian Foreign Service from 1970 to 2003. She was Head of Australian Diplomatic Missions in Bangladesh, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Fiji and, earlier in her career, served in Portugal, East Berlin and the Australian Mission to the UN in New York.

Sue is currently a Board Member of Volunteering WA, a Member of the UWA Senate and an Executive Business Coach. She is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and an Honorary Fellow of St Catherine’s College and a member of the College’s Council.

Successful women invest in themselves  

With Rachael Green, Morgan Stanley Wealth Management

Date: Wednesday 26 November
Time: 5.30pm - 8.00pm
Venue: Case Study Room
Price: $27.50

It’s important to invest in the people you care about. It’s also important to invest in yourself. While caring for others – spouse, children and parents – many women neglect to make themselves a priority.

Creating sound financial goals can be a smart first step toward taking care of yourself – and can potentially help put you in a better position to support those most important to you.

Rachael Green is a Strategic Financial Planner and partner of the BPF Group at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management. The BPF Group is a full service wealth management and investment advisory team within Morgan Stanley Wealth Management whose mission is to serve a select group of private clients and charitable organisations. Rachael particularly enjoys helping women to make sense of their financial position and also identify the best way forward to help them achieve their most important goals. Rachael has a strong focus on educating women which allows them to build confidence in their financial future.

This event is part of our Club Connect series.
