Participating in their 3rd Vinnies CEO Sleepout

One night isn't a lot, but it can make a whole lot of difference

I began my career in social housing and my Non Executive experience has always been focused upon helping social housing organisations deliver better services for some of Australia's most vulnerable. This is why Board Direction has chosen The Vinnies CEO SleepoutĀ asĀ our Charity Partner for 2019.

This year, as I have in the past, I am taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout to raise money for the St Vincent de Paul Society to support Australians in need. For one night, I'll be sleeping outside as part of an eye-opening experience to raise awareness and bring home the realities of homelessness.

To help break the devastating cycle of homelessness, I need your support. Will you help me to help me reach my target? Donating 100 dollars can make a huge difference to people who need it most.

Better still, why not consider sleeping out yourself - as a NED or CEO it is great way to develop network with with business leaders and NEDs from Commercial, Charity and Government organisations. You can register here: https://www.ceosleepout.org.au/board-direction
