TICKETS are still available for a fundraising dinner event on November 11 with former David Jones chief executive Paul Zahra as keynote speaker.

The event is hosted by the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Business Association and will be held at NSW Parliament House in the private dining room of the President of the NSW Legislative Council, Don Harwin.

[showads ad=MREC]Portions of the money raised will go to The Pinnacle Foundation.

Zahra has been a leading force in the Australian retail industry for over 30 years, holding senior executive roles in the sector before being catapulted into leading the multi-billion dollar premium department store group, David Jones.

During his tenure as chief executive, Zahra was credited with leading the digital transformation of David Jones, and he was the first chief executive of a company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange to be openly gay.

As well as being a vocal advocate for marriage equality, he also recently joined The Pinnacle Foundation charity group as Non-Executive Director.

At the dinner event, Zahra will share his personal journey, the leadership practices that have worked for him and the importance for corporate Australia in adopting effective diversity strategies in the workplace.

The Pinnacle Foundation’s chief executive Sean Linkson will also share information on the foundation’s goals and objectives.

Dinner will consist of a three-course meal and is strictly limited to only 24 people. To book, click here
