2008 Eastland Women in Business Lunch with Sigrid Thornton

By October 27, 2008No Comments

Maroondah Business Week is an annual event designed to assist Maroondah based businesses through providing information and networking opportunities.

The women in business lunch returned in 2008 with actress Sigrid Thornton who spoke about her experiences in acting, business and community work. Sigrid spoke about the need to remain focused while maintaining a sense of balance to ensure that other priorities are not compromised.

With the lunch coinciding with Pink Ribbon Day, Sigrid discussed her involvement in The Great Walk to Beijing on behalf of the Olivia Newton-John Foundation, as well as other charitable causes including her advocacy work to strengthen the Australian arts.
