Conversations in the shade. I attended a really interesting talk by Cheryl Edwardes AM this afternoon, put on by the @architects_wa, @pia_planning and @aila_wa today as part of their International Women's Day celebrations. I must admit I embarrassingly didn't know much about Cheryl before this, what an extraordinary leader. It was great to hear her lessons learned over a lifetime around work, family, law and politics. I'm always fascinated hearing about how different people developed their careers and overcame hurdles. Although this wasn't necessarily architecture based it was very worthwhile hearing about Cheryl's adventures through her years of experience. And great to see @fourlandscapestudio stepping up and supporting IWD today with enthusiasm and grace, and setting the challenge for next year's event. Also thanks to our wonderful @architects_wa Pres @suzannehuntarchitect for extraordinary panel moderation, there were some great women leaders in the room (courtyard!) today. If you ever get a chance to hear Cheryl speak, I encourage you to do so.
