BESydney welcomes seven new ambassadors to the program
Each year, a prominent leader speaks about how their experiences have shaped their view of the nation, and the challenges and opportunities for Australia.
“We are approaching a crossroads with the very concept of gender equality being increasingly contested in some quarters,” Broderick said. “Whether in Australia or internationally, we should not underestimate the enormity of what needs to shift if we are to continue to create a more gender equal, more inclusive world.
“How can we accelerate change by engaging both the head and the heart? How can we not only ensure that leaders take notice, but that they swing into action?”
Lyn Lewis-Smith, CEO of Business Events Sydney, said the Ambassador Dinner recognised the vital role Ambassadors play in raising the global profile of NSW.
“BESydney promotes NSW on the world stage, and our Ambassadors, who are all leaders in their field, help Australia secure prestigious international events and conferences to increase our global competitiveness,” Lewis-Smith said.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, who is Patron of the Ambassador Program, also formally welcomed seven new leaders to the program, which now features more than 90 Ambassadors from NSW priority sectors.
“It is an honour to be Patron of the Business Events Sydney Ambassador Program and support these individuals who are volunteering their time to advocate for our city and State as a hub of business, knowledge and innovation,” Berejiklian said.
