BESydney appoints Premier Gladys Berejiklian as patron of Ambassador Program
As patron, Berejiklian will support the efforts of Ambassadors who volunteer their time in support of boosting the state’s knowledge economy.
“I am proud to become patron of Business Events Sydney’s Ambassador Program, which plays a vital role in increasing Sydney’s profile on the world stage while positioning our State for a better future,” said Berejiklian.
“Together we’re securing international events which provide lasting community benefits across health, education, infrastructure and technology.”
BESydney CEO Lyn Lewis-Smith said the program leverages the insights and network of prominent leaders to secure major international events to NSW and Australia.
“They include award winning luminaries from Google, ANZ Bank through to Animal Logic and Sydney University,” she said.
The announcement builds on the Premier’s existing support for BESydney. Its current bid for the World Roads Congress to come to Sydney in 2023 has been strengthened by the Premier discussing the state’s credentials in infrastructure and innovation with key decision makers during her August mission to Japan and Korea.
