Women in Energy

On the 28th of June, Women in Energy hosted their second networking drinks of 2018, as part of their “Inspiring Leaders” series.

The event was held at The Painted Bird Bar & Kitchen, in Perth.

Some representatives from HFM Asset Management shared with us their insights about the event, which started with networking drinks at 5:30 pm, providing some space to meet and talk to other attendees and hear interesting stories about their careers, the industry and the expectations of the event.

Then it was time to hear the stories of the two guest speakers from Western Power: Hayley Mitchell and Fiona Bishop.

  • Hayley Mitchell, Metro Response (Operations) Manager at Western Power

During her speech, Hayley took the attendees through her professional journey, starting with her first career choice to study Music as well as trailing out a range of other industries before she decided to complete a BCom at Curtin which in turn lead her to her current role at Western Power. She had a few influential leaders at the beginning of her career development which supported and inspired to dream big and get where she wanted to be at the end of the day.

  • Fiona Bishop, Executive Manager of Change and Innovation at Western Power & CEDA (Committee for Economic Development of Australia) Trustee

After graduating from UWA with a Bachelor of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, she started developing her career and learned many lessons along the way.  Fiona shared some of the stories from key people who did or say things to her that help her grow both personally and professionally.  To inspire the women in the room to believe in themselves, Fiona shared a saying she has adopted from her Mum; “A little lippy goes a long way”, with this she encouraged women to be confident in what they do, the lippy represented self-preparation and the painting on of confidence.

Both of them are inspirational leaders, and the HFM representatives found the event valuable.

Congratulations to the Women in Energy team for planning this successful event!
