MARCH 2020

In this edition... 

We’re bringing you up to speed with what we’ve been up to, inviting you along to attend some fantastic events we’ll be presenting at, introducing some new opportunities to work with us as well as giving you some exclusive BYOM subscriber offers – let’s go! 

How is it March? 

Welcome to our first newsletter for 2020. Although 2019 feels like a million years ago, we’d like to recap the year that was in the spirit of this ‘Blow your own trumpet’ newsletter, and share that a fully self-funded female team truly smashed it out of the park!

After a much-needed break to recharge the batteries over the festive season, it’s fair to say we have hit the 2020 ground sprinting with March our busiest month to date. Lisa is in the regions as north as Geraldton and as south as Esperance with Vicki metro-based. 

In saying that however, we’ve stayed true to our mantra of balance, flexibility and agility. We’ve managed to put aside the much needed, but difficult to schedule, time to appreciate our followers and supporters in 2019, and set our business intentions for 2020. 

As you know we do our best to walk our talk, so as this year truly does speed ahead we feel it’s our civic mind blowing duty to ask – have you set your 2020 business intentions? You need to know them to deliver them. Make it happen!

Vicki and Lisa

Speaking our minds…

Women on Boards – Casual Coffee Catch Up 
Friday 21 February | Fresch Restaurant, Como

In this first catch up for 2020 Lisa was invited to share her own board journey. 
Her key takeaways? 
•    Sometimes you need to put yourself in the right place at the right time and not just wait for opportunities to find you. 
•    Only accept and embrace the opportunities that truly resonate with you and when the timing is right. 
•    Don’t be afraid to let go of offers that don’t feel right or when the timing is off.

Expanding corporate mind-set insights...

Corporate BYOM workshops available. 

Companies are often talked of as innovative, but is it really the company that is innovative or is it the people who have created the ideas, designed the processes or products? We believe it’s the people and in developing entrepreneurial skills that are vital for economic growth, we can help existing businesses succeed and gain competitive advantage. 

The future of work is unknown and uncertain for many. So how can you best navigate your future career? How can you maximise your potential and performance and that of your team? 

At BYOM we can develop and deliver a tailored corporate workshop to help you to identify the intrapreneurs in your team, assess the degree to which they are utilising an entrepreneurial mindset, understand where their skills lie and provide resources to leverage that competitive edge – talk to us today.
