Over the month of September, Acorn Network has made some pretty awesome stuff happen. So we thought now would be the time to share these wins with you!
On September 6th (2016) we launched our very first National Event Series (Young Leaders in Social Care) to a sell out crowds in Melbourne, Sydney, and Perth. We had over 115 people attend these events across Australia, allowing us meet so many great young individuals who were passionate about the ageing and caring industry, plus they got to hear some some serious leaders of the ageing industry.
Samantha (our founder) was able to meet Layne Beachley (7-time World Surfing Champion) for a quick surf at Manly Beach, and attend her Foundation's Aim For the Stars two day leadership program. With high calibre mentors and presenters (Holly Ransom, Nikki Fogden-Moore, Stacey Copas and more) the whirl-wind Sydney trip ended with awesome learnings and huge positivity that Samantha is applying into Acorn Network as we speak.
Also, we received a brilliant opportunity to present at the Aged and Community Services National Summit in Hobart. Samantha presented a inspiring piece on why we need more passionate and inspired young people in ageing and caring organisations. right now. With over 100 people in the audience it was a great way to showcase her expertise, highlight the waves Acorn Network is making, PLUS meet CEOs and senior managers from across Australia.
With more planning, more initiatives, and more collaborations happening the Acorn Network team is looking forward to creating many more milestones and opportunities to connect. So don't be a stranger and say hi! firstname.lastname@example.org
