The newly founded ‘Business Society’ was initiated by three hardworking Form V boys; John Wang, Henry Xu and Oliver Pitman. It aims to gain insights from leaders who are inspirational in their fields and prepared to share that knowledge with pupils passionate to learn more about the corporate world.
Ms Christine Holgate, the current CEO of Australia Post and former CEO of Blackmores, was an excellent choice as the inaugural speaker for the Business Society’s lunchtime seminars. She presented in the Palladium theatre on Friday 3 August. Ms Holgate joined Blackmores as CEO in 2008. Blackmores stock price increased by more than twelve times under her leadership. She moved to Australia Post last year. Ms Holgate spoke about her personal story and current challenges at Aus Post. She had lots of good advice for the boys.
