ClareHill Sysdoc(June 15, 2017) Clare Hill, Chief Executive at Sysdoc, a WEConnect International certified women-own business, spoke to the MCA recently about her ambitions for the firm, the impact of changes in the industry and what makes a great consultant.

McKeith Amanda(May 12, 2017) Amanda McKeith began Winnow Chocolates to explore her love of hand-made items and interest in food products in December 2013. 

Amanda fell in love not only with the traditional French technique of hand-tempering on marble, one which is rarely used by chocolate makers these days, but also with the scope of flavor combinations that are possible with chocolate. Realizing a gap in the Australian wedding favour market as well as custom-made corporate gifts motivated her to continue creating unique and delicious products, which can be used in a variety of different ways.
