Infuse Issue 7 March 2019 | Page 4

From the Desk of Maree Ferguson Founder & Director, Dietitian Connection Welcome to our first issue of Infuse for 2019! This year has already kicked off with some exciting projects here at DC, none other than our annual Dietitians Unite taking place in Sydney, later this month. We’re so excited to have a record number of attendees who’ll join our impressive list of speakers across three streams: clinical, business and how to get that job! I look forward to catching up with those of you attending and for those not able to make it, never fear – we’ll provide an event wrap in our next issue, so you won’t completely miss out. Over the years and in numerous positions I’ve held, I believe the start of a new year offers a chance to regroup, refocus and set those goals for the next 12 months. Here at DC we’re adopting a quote by Sir Richard Branson, as our motivation for 2019 and I thought it was only fitting to share with all of you. “Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down © Dietitian Connection 4 Infuse | March 2019
