Date: Saturday 22 June, 2019 Time: 9:30am – 1:30pm  ENGAGE Masterclass: Innovation 101  Are you the kind of person who sees needs everywhere? Do you want to do something to make the world a better place? Have you got one idea – or maybe three! – that won’t go away… Maybe one where you think you might really be on to something! But you need help getting started or taking it to the next level.   In this hands-on entrepreneurship workshop, you will learn tools to  imagine, design and validate ventures  (community groups, initiatives, organisations, social enterprises, for-profit companies) that can help make the world a better place. Who knows… You may discover your life’s work in an organisation that you build from scratch! Or you might discover ways of working more productively with others to address the burdens of your heart. The tools you’ll get in this Engage masterclass will enable you to innovate wherever you are, whether that’s in ministry endeavours, in your study, at work, in your family life or local community.   We welcome women from all fields and backgrounds, and of all ages and stages, to come along to this class!  In addition, for those considering applying for ADM’s support for their entrepreneurial work, this masterclass would be a helpful step in preparing your application for ADM’s Annual Funding Event.

Relating Across Cultures

       Date: Thursday 1 August, 2019    Time: 6.15pm-8.15pm    Location: ADM, Level 1, St Andrew's House,  464-480 Kent St, Sydney NSW 2000    Tickets: $30 (includes 2-course meal)     ENGAGE | Evening Session - August   Join us on the first Thursday of the month for Engage Evening Sessions – a fun, low-key opportunity for Christian women to come together and cheer each other on.  At Engage Evening Sessions you’ll hear three speakers from across a variety of spheres of work, culture and ministry. They’ll share stories about their current projects, new ideas or future plans. It's works-in-progress over a dinner party!  Engage Evening Sessions are a space to share knowledge and skills. And, as you hear stories from other women, a space to be inspired and dream big! This is a community where it’s perfectly OK to fail… and to try again, as you seek to discern the ways in which God is calling you to engage and impact the world for Him.  Meet peers, mentors and friends to journey with. Enjoy food and good fun on a Thursday night. Our evening sessions are open to all interested women from any field, age or background – and we especially welcome newcomers. Come join us!  Tickets are $30 and include a two-course meal by our friends at the wonderful social enterprise, Dinner on the Table.
