18/12/2023

WOB South Australian representative Wendy Teasdale-Smith has stepped down after 15 years building our network in the state.

 

Wendy marked her last day as WOB’s SA rep at the Member’s Christmas Luncheon in Adelaide with guest speaker Jane Jeffreys AM.

“It has been my pleasure to work as WOB SA organiser and with Hannah Andreyev as our sponsor we have gone from strength to strength. I couldn't think of a better final speaker than Jane Jeffreys as my last guest to interview. Amazing reflections and share wisdoms,” said Wendy.Hannah Andreyev said: “The success of the chapter has been Wendy’s warmth, enthusiasm and great interest in the members and guests. Thank you Jane and Wendy for sending us off on our holidays with food for thought and inspiration for the coming year.”

Claire Braund paid tribute to Wendy, one of the first South Australian women to join WOB. “She has been instrumental in the growth and success of the network and served close to 15 years - in both official and unofficial roles for WOB in SA - always with style and a smile! Without her dedication, loyalty and enterprise WOB would not be where it is today - in SA or nationally.”

“I have fond memories of Wendy attending all four WOB conferences - always sporting beautiful shoes and a colourful hair bow,” added Claire. “She is a strong woman who stands up for and supports other women. A woman who deserves her place in the life membership list at WOB - congratulations Wendy.”

Women on Boards co-founder Ruth Medd -  a fellow traveller from the northern city of Elizabeth in the Salisbury area of Adelaide - praised Wendy’s contribution and commitment to her community - as a school principal and then with TAFE alongside her work as a Director. She said she is delighted to share the badge of honour of an ‘Elizabeth girl made good’ with Wendy.

Women on Boards extends their heartfelt thanks and gratitude for Wendy’s tireless efforts and successes for WOB.
