Hello well what a start to the year we have had – 2015 is already pumping for Resonate!
January 22nd we had our first R’Connect event for the year with informal drinks at Groove Train in King George Square. Over 25 skilled professionals and project owners joined us to connect and share stories, exchanging OFFERS and ASKS. In February, we had two events back to back with a co-hosted event “What’s your impact story?” by the Digital Story Tellers. We arranged the workshop in conjunction with the World Wellness Group and arranged the Digital Story Tellers to fly up from Sydney to run the workshop. With 20 attendees from all different backgrounds the workshop was a fascinating mix of brainstorming and discussion around their Story Canvas.
Afterwards, we had our R’Connect event in Alfred and Constance with again about 25 people in attendance. Mikey and Sylvia from Digital Story Tellers were able to stay for an hour to mingle with people and share more about digital stories.
This February Jennifer the co-founder of Resonate was also invited to talk to the Social Enterprise Community of Practice chaired by Vicky Meyer of the Workforce Council of Queensland. This group is a conglomeration of professionals and practitioners in education, training, NFPs, Government and business. She shared the story of Resonate with them and joined in the discussion around how to develop better social enterprises and business culture in Queensland.
We are also excited this year to add new team members to Resonate in the form of an Executive Advisory Board. These amazing individuals are giving up time from their busy schedules to mentor the Resonate team, and offer strategic advice about our progress. Our board consists of Jelenko Dragisic CEO of Roadmender, Caroline Austin who has worked for many years with the Red Cross and UNHCR, Danielle Hossack of Westpac Bank and Sam Shiao, founder of Innoco. We are excited to see what the year holds with them on board.
