Executives share experience

BUSINESSWOMEN gathered at TappooCity last week as Westpac marked International Women's Day with talks on women in business.

Melina Schamroth, founder of m.a.d. woman, spoke to this newspaper about her business and what she hoped to achieve by talking to businesswomen in Fiji.

"When you work in a small business, you can sometimes feel quite isolated," she said.

"It's a fantastic opportunity to get people together and network, also to learn from people who've done things within business."

Ms Schamroth was keen to share her experiences working with businesswomen across the world.

"This event is fantastic, I feel very privileged, and know people get a lot out of hearing from other people about their stories."

To her, helping others by sharing previous experiences and lessons is key, but she also spoke of the importance of creating ethical businesses, and making a difference to others' lives.

"I'm in the business of making a difference," she said.

"Although it's not operating in areas like Fiji, what I hope to leave behind is some ideas for people to be able to do things in their own communities."

M.a.d woman has helped more than 300,000 people over the course of six years, and the founder is excited for its future.

"I'm also promoting 'Grateful in April', which is a campaign to get people feeling grateful for what's already in their lives, and really get an attitude of gratitude.

"We're really interested to see what people in Fiji are grateful for ... it's just about getting people to change their attitude and it's amazing what you can attract into your life when you're really being positive about things."
