Please join us for an inspiring conversation presented by Adam Carpenter, Director of Toolbox Graphic Design and more recently Prohibition Liquor as he talks about how to integrate your values and passion into the workplace.
Developing brand passion is all about creating a journey of engagement with the customer but how do you keep that passion from fading out.
Adam will share how his businesses interlink with each other and how important it is to keep passionate about your brand. Adam will also touch on strategies and risks that he's taken.
“I'll be brutally honest about what I've experienced... I like to keep things real!” Adam Carpenter
This will be a great event to kick start ICON SA’s 2019 program of events.
Join us for an insightful speaker followed by networking, nibble platter and a Friday afternoon drink. There are limited places, so get in quick before it sells out.

Our 2019 mentoring program in WA is ready to kick off! So we invite you and our pool of mentors and mentees for an informal lunch.
Brant Garvey, Paralympian and motivational speaker, is our guest speaker for the session. The lunch is an opportunity to connect, network and share experiences and ideas as we embark on the mentoring journey together. It is also a good opportunity for those not already registered for the program to come along and find out more about it.
About the presenter:
Paratriathlete Brant Garvey became the first Australian above-the-knee amputee to compete in an Ironman Triathlon. Not only did he complete the 3.8 km swim, 180 km ride and 42 km run, but he set a world record in the process!
From there he went on to become the first Australian Paratriathlete in his category to participate in the Paralympics. He is currently training for the Kona Ironman in 2020 and works as a motivational speaker. He also works as an ambassador for Zero2Hero, an organisation that aims to empower children with mental health issues.
Brant will share his journey with us and how mentors have really helped him along the way. Two of his mentors include his sister who was diagnosed with three types of cancer as a teenager and well-known three-time Paralympic gold medallist and 2016 Australian Team co-captain Kurt Fearnley.
We look forward to seeing you for what is sure to be an inspirational session!

Our 2019 reverse, cross-industry mentoring program in WA is about to take flight and we would like you to participate.
There are many benefits to being involved in a mentoring program. Mentors have an opportunity to invest themselves in someone who is keen to learn from a seasoned professional. Mentees are able to share ideas with someone who has walked down the same path. At ICON, we are pleased to share the benefits of mentoring with our members.
Our WA mentoring program is now it its second year. This cost-effective program matches professionals aspiring to leadership with established senior leaders and provides a framework for creating and building mentoring relationships.
"I feel external mentor/mentee relationships are really important. Having previously benefited from being mentored earlier in my career, it is very rewarding to pay it forward in now being a mentor." ICON Mentor WA, 2018

Pricing has a greater impact on profitability than any other lever, yet many firms lack confidence in their pricing strategy. This workshop provides a comprehensive framework for assessing your firm’s approach to pricing. The workshop is illuminated with numerous case studies and encourages participants to identify opportunities to drive revenue and profit growth within their firm.
Never before has the pricing of professional services received so much attention. Most clients have significantly evolved their approach to purchasing professional services and are demanding more from firms – for less. More than ever before, firms are being required to justify their price. Failure to do so results in price erosion or the loss of business.
Professional service firms must develop their pricing competence in order to effectively deal with these increasing client pressures.
