Frogponds - Leading through change
Frogponds ‘Leading Through Change’ Event, held on Friday 13 November 2020, with guest Keynote Speaker, The Hon. Ben Wyatt, MLA was a tremendous success. We have received fabulous feedback from education leaders and other leaders present as to the ‘positive culture’ displayed by our team. The event brought together leaders from across education sectors, as well as the not-for-profit and private sectors. It was an eclectic group of people, which often results in the best kind of networking.
Our hosts Arthur @ Co served delicious food and beautiful wines, in a stunning restaurant setting. The event could not have taken place without our wonderful sponsors: JB Hi-Fi Solutions, Ricoh Australia and Impowrd Pty. Ltd.
Our CEO, Alison Welsh and COO, Jodie Rybicki delivered heart-warming and inspirational speeches, our MC Maria Coate was congratulated on being a fabulous MC and our Business Development Manager made everyone feel welcome upon arrival.
Some interesting themes emerged in our ‘Table Conversations’ including success through change; ambition versus courage; positive communication, team culture and using technology to facilitate change.
Technology has enabled Frogponds to deliver an on-line platform that provides simple, fair and transparent sourcing/procurement solutions for goods and services in Education, Government and Business. Frogponds saves schools/organisations both time and money.
The event as it turns out was a historic day, as the State Treasurer announced his retirement from WA politics the following Monday. We want to take this opportunity to thank Ben for not only being our guest speaker but also for his outstanding contribution to WA and wish him all the very best in his future endeavours.
