The Australian Businesswomen’s Network (ABN) has announced Alison Vidotto of Push! Leadership as its 2015 Member of the year.
Over the last twelve months, Alison has made a great contribution to the ABN community through her effective and popular blogs on leadership, by participating in the Member Authors campaign and working closely with a mentor, and by taking part in numerous programs including the Entrepreneurs’ Roundtables and the Marketing Success Mastermind.
Her contributions include some of the ABN’s most popular blog posts: ‘Every Leader Needs Some Downtime’ and ‘Increasing Productivity for the End of Financial Year’. Additionally, Alison has provided a free eBook to ABN members – ‘Great Confidence Boosting Tips for Women in Leadership’.
“Her support of the community and her willingness to contribute, to take chances, to ask questions — are the exact attributes that we value here at the Australian Businesswomen’s Network and it’s a great pleasure and honour to have Alison in our community and to be able to support her and her business,” explained ABN CEO Suzi Dafnis.
Alison’s biggest passion is training and leadership. She has trained students in various fields of study, is a leadership keynote speaker, and is the founder/director of the Australian Charity for the Children of Vietnam. Raising a large family, founding and developing a charity while building and running a business has given her great understanding of the need for strong, conscious leadership. Alison believes that continuous development is a vital aspect of success.
“There is a leader in all of us. It doesn’t matter where you come from or what your situation is. What matters is what you do with the resources you have and where you end up. ”
Alison’s other interests include:
Reading, travel, café bookshops and city walks.
Alison describes why she joined the Australian Businesswomen’s Network:
“I was very impressed at the standard of information and articles in the free newsletter and wanted to find out more. I signed up for premium membership and attended an Entrepreneurs’ Roundtable meeting. It was an extremely positive, beneficial and collaborative experience. I was then connected to experts in the field who are now working with me to move my business project forward. I’m so impressed at the support, knowledge and services the ABN offers to businesswomen in Australia.”
As a mother of six, a businesswoman and founder of a charity, Alison has a wealth of knowledge that she is happy to share with other members.
“I am looking forward to working with like-minded women and belonging to a network that is positive, dynamic and supportive.”
We congratulate Alison and thank her for her contribution to the Australian Businesswomen’s Network community.
