Influencial Women in Business

Peter Strong - chief executive of theAustralian Council of Small Business

While big business often struggles to get women on board in positions of power, the small business sector brims with the skills and energy of female entrepreneurs.

We hear a lot about women not being in positions with influence and power. We know we need diversity on boards and across leading management positions in industry if we are to access the skills, experience, knowledge, passion, energy and attitude of everyone in our business community.  Yet in the world of small business we do have women in important jobs and this should be recognised.

As the chief executive of the Council of Small Business, when I need to talk to someone about policy or process or some issue of the day, I have a group of advisers that I consult.  Included in this group are people with the experience, knowledge, skills and attitude that I value. 

We don’t always agree but that is the important part of the consultation – discussion informs policy while constant agreement creates hubris and inhibits growth and innovation. Myadvisers come from most sectors, including retail, transport, finance, the service sector, and small business support agencies.

So who are the women I consult? My advisers may head up organisations with over 80,000 members; they influence health, property and real estate, regional issues, finance and skills, organisational capacity and attitude development for workforces of the largest businesses and government agencies. I consult these people not just on women’s issues, although I might do from time to time. I consult them on issues to do with policy, process, politics and innovation.

They may not be chief executives of large private sector corporations but they are involved in powerhouse organisations that add to the wealth and health of Australia; more power to them and women like them and I hope they get the recognition they have earned.

See the attached list of Australia's Seven Most Influencial Women in Small Business in Australia

If you want a worthwhile opinion or the facts, find these women – and other women and men like them – in associations that support small business.

Wake Up from your Mobile Email Nightmare!

Category
News Item Of Interest or New Service

Hello Sue-Sharyn Ward

CIO's have a recurring nightmare: their entire organization is in a panic trying to access email on iPhones, iPads, Android and Windows phones and tablets... so many mobile devices!

Sales people are screaming at you to load their emails faster, putting on more pressure; but you are stuck with what you have. They keep trying to summon magic that will push their emails as they come in, or at least tell them if their email failed due to a network outage or mailbox limitations.

Your executives are trying to schedule meetings on the road. How do you explain to them that with native clients, they don’t have the ability to see attendee “free/busy” information on their mobile devices?

Apparently it’s much easier to send files by carrier pigeon than sending them using a mobile device.
You're frantically trying to explain that sending attachments from a file system, or the Cloud, wasn’t even a consideration when you deployed your email system.

This FREE paper explains how Citrix WorxMail can help you wake up from your mobile email nightmare and into a new way of working.
