Historically, women have been, and continue to be the backbones of regional economies and the issues these women face are as diverse as themselves.
Regional Business women will face many of the same issues their city counterparts face, as well as unique regional issues. Sue Daley, the region’s Renovation Expert and Educator is joined by Cathy Smith, “The Attraction Maven” at CATCO Enterprises for a conversation at the Pinjarra Golf Club delving into the unique issues faced by women in the Mandurah/Murray region.
Sue and Cathy will be joined by Robyn Clarke MLA, Member for Murray-Wellington who will share an overview on what is happening in the region and her unique perspective on the issues women in regional areas face.
About Sue Daley: Sue is the Mandurah/Murray region’s renovation specialist. She helps homeowners, investors and business owners transform their homes, offices and investment properties into liveable, lovable spaces that you want to spend time in. Sue’s passion for renovations started when she started invested in property and saw so many places had such great potential but needed a full renovation to transform them. Over the years Sue has developed a great network of independent trades committed to her culture of exceptional customer service. Maiolo Constructions Pty Ltd forms the final piece of the property transformation puzzle. Joe (owner of Maiolo Constructions) and Sue describe themselves as the Yin and Yang of property development. Sue’s scheduling is pretty legendary, clients joke that she’ll have your home renovation organised, planned and be whipping the trades into shape before you’ve even had your first morning coffee! Renovations can be a costly exercise, so you want to make sure they are done right the first time.
