This special In Conversation with Tulsi van de Graaff features two women in business with personal breast cancer experiences. Maria Sanchez from Energy Conservation and Robyn Mercer from Brave People Solutions.

As you might be aware, breast cancer remains the most common cancer among Australian women (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer) with the good news that survival rates are very high and continue to improve.

In Conversation 

Our panel discussion will explore a range of challenges facing women who receive a diagnosis and treatment including:

  • Coping with a diagnosis of breast cancer

  • The impact on your day to day life and work

  • Communicating the challenge with friends, family, colleagues and clients

  • Tips and strategies to deal with life, family, work and well-being

Discussion

We encourage our panel and audience to ask questions, share personal experiences and extend the discussion. It's a very personal topic but one that this group can confidently talk about and learn from others.
