International Womens' Day 2010

On the 8th of March, it is International Womens' Day. And it is a time to look back and see what we as women have achieved as we strive to improve our life and also to enrich the lives of those we care for. To this end, The Hub, a women's sub group of the Brisbane North Chamber of Commerce held a luncheon function today to celebrate the event.

Their guest speaker was the Lady Mayoress of Brisbane, Lisa Newman. Lisa is on so many boards and committees that you wonder if she ever has time to be at home. Today she spoke about her passion for charity work, how she mixed the roles of mother and being Lord Mayor Campbell's wife.. and manages to always have a smile on her face along the way. Lisa is a truly remarkable lady and we, the citizens of Brisbane are lucky to have her in our midst. I was fortunate enough to sit next to Lisa and learn more about her passion for life. She has produced a cook book with proceeds of sales going to charity. Good luck Lisa.
