Deloitte Foundation

I’m glad to have been appointed as one of the two ¬†Sydney sponsoring partners of the Deloitte Foundation.

We undertake the normal charity work that one would expect of such a foundation. This allowed me to attend an excellent function on Wednesday evening for one of our supported charities, Good Return. Good Return has deployed millions of dollars to fund micro-loans to the most needy in our region (with a 99.99% repayment rate!). It’s a wonderful charity and organisation that deserves our support.

One of the takeaways from the function was a great quote from Gloria Steinem, a famous journalist, author and feminist, which was:

We have to be what we want to happen.

A great thought indeed!
