Register now for AACS Women in Convenience with Sheena Polese

The Australian Association of Convenience Stores (AACS) will host its Women in Convenience (WIC) event on Wednesday 19 July in Sydney, and registrations are still open.

Leadership and Development Coach Sheena Polese MBA, MSc (Coaching Psychology) will be the keynote speaker, sharing her knowledge of Australian FMCG.

Polese is in the business of bringing out the best in professional executives, managers, and individual team members by helping them get to the core of what matters. She helps them focus on their own goals in alignment with the organisation and identify and support them in what needs to shift.

She says that it’s leaders who predominantly shape an organisation’s culture, but it’s their authentic leadership that drives business results, positive change, and overall success.

Along with leadership and executive coaching, Polese has held several Senior Executive positions across leading consumer goods companies such as Coca-Cola and Newell Rubbermaid.

She is also trained in adult psychological development and will share some of the common themes that arise in female leaders and will provide some direction on how these can be addressed.

“My coaching is focused on enabling women to step into their full capacity and support them to overcome challenges to achieve their goals,” she says.

AACS CEO, Theo Foukkare, said the WIC events hosted by AACS are great networking opportunities for both men and women in the convenience channel and a great forum to share ideas and discuss challenges with likeminded industry professionals.

“I’m really excited to hear about Sheena’s strategies to get the most out of your own experience. Sheena has a deep understanding of and experience in FMCG in Australia, so using her experience applied with her leadership and coaching expertise will make for a great session for members.

“Our Women in Convenience events are open to everyone irrespective of gender, so I encourage everyone to come along that has any interest in diversity and inclusion in the workforce.”
