Doing business and celebrating International Women’s Day at the beach


The Sydney Surf Pro is running at Sydney’s Manly Beach all this week and Komosion is involved in supporting Surfing NSW, which is the event manager.

Komosion’s Prinicipal, John O’Neill, is also Chairman of Surfing NSW, and the Komosion team is pleased to be supporting the organisation in building up its partnership capabilities and in engaging potential new partners.

Day One of the Sydney Surf Pro on Sunday was a social milestone when the world’s top women surfers featured in an all-women’s day of competition, marking International Women’s Day.

Yesterday, Surfing NSW also partnered with Business Australia and the World Surf League (WSL) to run a Business Leaders’ Breakfast at the event.

The Sydney Surf Pro is part of the World Qualifying Series run by WSL which has proudly mandated equal prize money for men and women in the sport of surfing.  It runs until next Saturday, March 14, and features some 200 of the world’s best men and women surfers.
