The Power of Storytelling
Our final major Women in Business event for our 10th anniversary year finished off with a bang! Over 250 guests joined us at the picturesque Oatlands House to hear 'The Power of Storytelling' with the delightful Annabel Crabb, along with Cath Keenan, 2016 Australian of the Year Local Hero and co-founder of Sydney Story Factory.
Both Annabel and Cath shared how their love of words and writing stories have been an essential part of shaping their own lives, and how sharing that experience and instilling a love of writing in young people can make a world of difference for them too. Words and storytelling and being able to express one's ideas are vitally important skills in anyone's life.
We are thrilled to have raised $7,360 on the day for the Sydney Story Factory's creative writing centre opening in Parramatta in May 2018. From this new hub, creative writing and storytelling workshops will be conducted with thousands of marginalised young people aged 7-17 from all over Western Sydney.
We have a fantastic opportunity for those in our Women in Business community who may be interested in volunteering at Sydney Story Factory's Parramatta hub. Information sessions will be conducted from late January 2018 and more information can be found by contacting their Volunteer Manager, Craig New - email@example.com
