The Goulburn Valley Business Rural and Industry Network (GV BRaIN) is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to encourage a vibrant, energised and engaged business community by providing opportunities to promote their business, be inspired by high-profile speakers and meet like-minded individuals.
GV BRaIN Committee Chair Damien “Will” Willoughby said this event has been pulled together by the not-for-profit committee made up of a new group of highly skilled and passionate locals. “Our last GV BRaIN event was in March 2020 with Shane Jacobson; the week before Covid started to become a thing.
Like everyone in an event space we’ve been in hibernation and can’t wait to reconnect with Goulburn Valley’.
Funding for the event comes from a grant secured by a Greater Shepparton City Council initiative S.H.I.N.E, focusing on increasing wellbeing across the broader community.“We are grateful for the support of Council to help kick-start our events calendar for the first time in 2 years”, Mr WIllouhby said.
During her 15-year career as an elite athlete, Anna Meares collected 18 gold medals, 16 silver medals and 10 bronze
medals at Olympic, World and Commonwealth Games level. Anna was named Australia's flag bearer and team
captain at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
In retirement from sport Anna pursued many passions and interests including foster care, charitable endeavours and
will be strongly present in the team for Australia in 2022 as the General Manger for the Commonwealth Games in
She also joined the Channel 7 expert commentary team for the Tokyo Olympics 2020/1, a position she has also filled
for the Santos Tour Down Under since 2017.
