On Thursday, 24th May 2018, a group of Mum’s from across the College community braved the weather to join for fun, food and fellowship. Guest speaker Penny Webb encouraged those present to view other women in their sphere of influence as allies, not competition. This sentiment of camaraderie was evident through the night with energetic discussion and laughter.

Penny has over 25 years experience as a high level leader and spokesperson in both the private and not-for-profit sectors. She is also the author of “She’s Not Your Competition”.
