be inspired - ronni khan

This year’s Be Inspired women’s leadership event is shaping up to be another not to be missed occasion.

This year’s event features guest speaker Ronni Kahn, Founding Director of OzHarvest, a not for profit organisation that provides food for communities at risk.

Ronni Kahn grew up in South Africa and moved to Israel where she brought up her family. She arrived in Australia as an immigrant from Israel in 1988. 

Come and listen to Ronni’s amazing story of compassion and determination; hear about her quest to make a difference in the world and to create an organisation with sound business ethics that would positively impact society.

Be inspired by her journey and find out how she took a small idea – collecting edible excess food from a range of food outlets – and created an organisation that delivers around 15,000 meals per day to those in need.

Ronni will be joined by inspiring local women including Yarra Ranges Councillors Jeanette McRae and Samantha Dunn, Yarra Ranges Council’s Ian de la Rue Award recipient 2012 Margaret Brooks, and 2012 Swinburne University Scholarship recipient Jessica Cruff.

When: Wednesday, 25 July, 2012, 5.30pm arrival for drinks and canapés, formalities start at 6pm.
