How Gemma got involved with Women in Business? As part of her profession/career, she is required to have Continuous Professional Education Program (CPE) regularly through seminars/webinars/trainings/workshops/monthly discussion meetings and so on.
Gemma met Colleen Bergin (Executive Officer of Youth Now) in a discussion meeting late last year who was the Guest Speaker. Part of the discussion was what Youth Now does. She got interested and volunteered to help with their accounts once a week. Then she met Tania Sacco and Maria Cox who work for Youth Now and also both are in Women In Business committee.
Gemma is so grateful to be in the committee. It is good knowing people who are in business like her whose members give support with each other and share each others' experience. Also it is about socialising with members and others with the same interests/goals in life; about having fun and raise funds by attending events.
Gemma is one of the committee (a treasurer) of Women In Business Network Inc. She prepares the financial accounts for WIB Network Inc.
