A year ago I wrote about how proud I was to witness the graduation of the first participants of the Enterprising Tarneit pilot. This year I was lucky enough to witness the graduation of the Enterprising Wyndhamvale participants. This was especially sweet for me as we had a lot of our early start BizBuddy members participating and quite a few mentors were BizBuddies as well.
What an amazing year it has been and how delightful to not only track the progress of the first lot of participants but to see the confidence and clarity develop in our budding entrepreneurs in Wyndham. I was bursting with pride listening to the pitches and feel very confident that not only are we building a strong peer-2-peer support system, but we are creating enduring relationships and trust not only between ourselves but with the different stakeholder elements in Wyndham and beyond.
To all the participants and to the Centre for Multicultural Youth – Enterprising Wyndham I say thank you for your courage and vision and belief in our community.
Well done especially to our BizBuddy Stars and congratulations on your graduation – onwards and upwards from here:
Harley Collins Third Life Brewing
Kirti Dube Kinetics of Success
Michelle Ripari Michelle Ripari Art
Sami Khan Vic Voice

My heart is bursting with pride not only for the talent, passion and energy but for the love, comraderie and genuine relationships that have been nurtured and the collaborative energy that has formed and I have no doubt the participants and the program will go from success to success.
We are proud to be part of the Live Local, Work Local, Shop Local – Collaborate Global movement – We would love you to join us
