EO Melbourne Chapter News

A note from the President

Welcome to our first monthly EO Melbourne chapter newsletter.

With so much going on across EO, we are hoping that this newsletter will let you know about all the member benefits available to you locally, regionally and internationally.

One of the things I am most passionate about is creating a strong sense of community within our chapter.

This idea of community underpins this year’s chapter theme, ‘The One’. With this in mind, we’re asking you to nominate and submit your One key goal for the year. We will collate and share these goals within the chapter over the coming months as we work together to help everyone achieve their One.

If you haven’t submitted your One yet, please use this link to do so now. We are hoping to start ticking off these goals in August.

Feel free to reach out anytime if you have any questions.

– Dean Cherny
