Pratto Launch, AGM & Annual Stakeholder Event!
We celebrated the theme "The Difference a Year Makes" at our inaugral Annual Stakeholder Event and AGM. We also offically declared "The Pratto" open for business!
The Annual General Meeting was a success! It also marked the launch of The Pratto, a social enterprise that gives refugees and newly arrived migrants opportunities, skills and experience in the hospitality industry. The team did a wonderful job catering the event and the ladies even got up and unfurled the Pratto banner!
We also recognised our staff Employee of the Year nominees and winner, as well as our long serving staff, and applauded their commitment, courage and dedication.
Our Keynote speakers for the day included Mayor of the Inner West - Councillor Darcy Byrne, as well Hedayat Osyan - Founder and Manager of Nick Tiling Services and recent winner of TedxSydney Pitch 2018.
Hedayat spoke about his passion for helping refugees and newly arrived migrants find work and avoid exploitation in the construction and tiling industry. Read more about Hedayat's story here.
Beaitiful cultural performances were enjoyed by all.
All in all it was a wonderful event, where we reflected on a productive and challenging 2018. Together with our stakeholders we celebrated our achievements, and shared the many positive outcomes that we saw for our clients this year.
We can't wait to do it again next year!
