Hi [FirstName],

Welcome to our engagement update for April. The links to register are in the hotspot, but special mention of our new Master Class in Negotiation Skills (members only), last chance to register to win the AVCAL golf cup on Thursday of this week, and if you're a growth fund member - there is an industry dinner announced for 15 May.

We are well and truly underway on our journey to AVCAL alpha in Melbourne in September.  If you haven't registered already, please do so you don't miss out as we are capped at 450. Our program is looking great with high calibre fund managers, investors, business and finance professionals joining us to lead thought-provoking discussions and share inspiring stories about building better businesses. Some of our confirmed speakers are listed below. Forty investors are already registered - double the number from previous years. Have you booked your accommodation yet? Accommodation is now limited at the Hilton South Wharf.

If you are a corporate who can see the synergies in working with AVCAL on our engagement events throughout the year as a partner, we'd welcome a discussion.

Hope to see you soon.
Speak soon,

Deborah Young
General Manager
