It’s no secret that the “big banks” and also the smaller banks and building societies battle it out for your business. business account is with Westpac. Why? Many reasons, including because a friend works there and I like their marketing angle making banking more personal.
I also really like the way they support women in business through The Ruby Connection.
I first heard about The Ruby Connection when handed a flyer at the Westpac exclusive viewing of “Paint the Town Red: A Farewell to Valentino” exhibition with my Westpac friend on Thursday 11 November 2010.
Not really a fashionista, though I had of course heard of Valentino, I admit I knew little about his designs. However this exhibition was truly breathtaking. Held at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, that really is where these dresses belong – in an art gallery. As a mum of 2 young children, often in a rush to get places and little time to dwell on being fashionable most days, I couldn’t imagine actually wearing any of these designs but really enjoyed looking at them and dreaming!
