Spotless has partnered with the Association on a number of events across the country, sharing and promoting their knowledge of water management within the integrated facilities services industry.
In May, as part of National Reconciliation Week, the WA Branch held a National Reconciliation Week workshop
which was facilitated by Amy Cooke and Aggie Manel from the ICEA Foundation, a non-for-profit organisation with the overarching goal of achieving reconciliation through mutual respect for all.
The event was held on Whadjuk Noongar Land at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre and the Branch partnered with Spotless for the workshop. Lucy Cordone, Spotless Contract Manager for Government – Housing WA, shared the results of Spotless water audits on a selection of their WA government housing properties. She also spoke about how they were able to identify methods to save thousands of litres of water per year by changing faulty taps and replacing broken and leaking pipes, as well as their work with the Wirrapanda Foundation.
In July, the VIC Branch partnered with Spotless on the Victorian President's Dinner which was held at the National Sports Museum at the MCG in Melbourne. This unique location made for a night to be remembered – a dinner by the cricket wicket! The President’s Dinner gave Victorian Branch President Lindsey Brown an opportunity to thank supporters of the Victorian Branch, including the Victorian utilities.
The venue seats a maximum of 40 and there was not a spare seat in the house which made a for a great night. One of the biggest highlights was the attendance of Spotless’ own award-winning executive pastry chef Deniz Karaca, who presented a most delicious and intriguing dessert and mingled with all guests to share some of the secrets of the dessert creation.
In September, the NSW Branch also partnered with Spotless for their NSW President's Dinner which was held at Taronga Zoo in Sydney. The dinner was a very small and intimate affair, with only 32 invited guests.
Dana Nelson, CEO of Spotless, gave a 5-minute sponsor's address and certainly made an impression about the depth and breadth of what Spotless are involved in, in particular the "green kitchen".
Guests enjoyed delicious food while overlooking a fantastic view. It was a great opportunity for senior professionals within the water sector to relax, enjoy some great food, and hear about cross-industry collaboration.
Just last week, the SA Branch held their President’s Dinner at one of Spotless’ iconic venues, the South Australian Museum. Executive General Manager for Government, Paul Mahoney gave a speech that highlighted Spotless’ commitment to sustainability and water conservation.
Attendees – including the Hon David Speirs, SA’s Minister for Environment and Water – gathered in the World Mammals Gallery to enjoy a delicious three-course meal provided by Spotless' EPICURE team, surrounded by exotic animals from every corner of the globe.
The Association thanks Spotless for their ongoing support and looks forward to many more partnered events in the future.
