Introducing Eloise: the highlight of the 2015 Interchange AGM!

29 October 2015 in Interchangers' stories, Stories

It was fantastic to see so many familiar faces (and plenty of new ones, too) at the Interchange AGM on Wednesday, 28 October.

Guests enjoyed the opportunity to mingle and chat over canapes and drinks, but without doubt, the highlight was a speech by Interchange Osborne Park customer and entrepeneur, Eloise Bolam.

Eloise spoke about her experiences including the challenges her disability presents, but also about her small business and time as a Special Olympian. Eloise is a talented photographer, and uses the images she shoots to make and sell large prints and greeting cards.

Best of all, she used some of the money raised from her business to fund her trip to the Special Olympics last year.  She is such an impressive young lady, and we are privileged to support her!

Guests also heard from Board Chair and WA Telstra Business Woman of the Year Award winner, Angie Paskevicius, and other members of the Interchange Board.
