Hello guys! It seems like a lot had
happened since the last newsletter. I am
so happy that most of you had read the
last one and gave me a lot of good
response. I will try to make it better in
this issue. And also feel free to give me
any suggestions. Remember this is not
only my newsletter; its also belonging to
First of all, the first ever breakfast
networking event was successful and
more than 25 Curtin Students attended
the event. It was such a great chance to
develop networking and leadership skills.
And also it had great breakfast for all
participants! Its so happy to see so
many students working hard to learn
more in these great events. I am looking
forward to the second one in the near
Then we had the great Ice skating event
which Curtin and UWA people joined
together and had a great night with Ice
skating. Everyone was so happy and of
course helping each other on the ice. So
it was such a good bonding event for all
Then last week we also had the Global
Caf which is a open discussion forum
to discuss many international issues. It
helped people understand more around
them internationally. As a member in
AIESEC, it is very important to have an
internationally mind set. Also we could
promote international internship better if
we understand what people care about
on an international level.
It had been great seeing all the portfolio
working together to achieve something
good and wonderful.
Also this issue I am very happy to invite
Krunal from Business Development to
talk more about his portfolio in new
section Portfolio Corner which is a
section you could understand more
about each portfolio in AIESEC Curtin.
Furthermore in the next two week we
still will have a lot to come for AIESEC
Curtin. And I hope more people would
join the event if they have the time. As
always, feel free to contact me if you
have any suggestion. Enjoy your week!

Breakfast Networking Event
AIESEC Curtin Breakfast Networking Event (BNE)
Yayyyy!!! 1st AIESEC Curtin Breakfast Networking Event was successful!
I bet this event would be one of the unforgettable networking experiences for all participants,
especially for OC team (Audrey, Ashley, Elaine, Ernest and Karen) in 2012.
At that day, two speakers, seven VIPs and more than 25 Curtin Students were attended our event.
Prof. Kandy Dayaram, from head of school of management and Prof. Nigel de Bussy, from head of
school of marketing spoke and shared their views of leadership and some marketing strategies
(Brand awareness) to all participants and VIPs. Business representatives from CPA Australia and
Bank-west were joined our event. Many participants had actively participated during speech
sessions and breakfast socializing session. Awesome breakfast and networking time had been
provided by this event.
Besides that, I am happy to participate in and work with other AIESECers from different portfolios.
Worked with MAC and TM portfolio, we were able to promote our event to outsiders and insiders
successfully; worked with finance portfolio, we were able to manage and control our budget.
Big thanks to all AIESECers!!! I believe that AIESEC Curtin 2nd Breakfast networking event will be
bigger and more successful and professional! Yeah UR!!!

Global Caf was an event

Different topics were discussed
in groups. Topics like Corruption,

Hey AIESEC!! I was delighted when Ricky asked me if would like to do an
article for newsletter about BD. We have been hearing and seeing a lot
about BD lately, and it is fantastic to see the LC trying to make an effort to
know the portfolio better and also inquiring whether if there is something
THEY could do to make life easier for BD! BD really appreciates your
interest guys! I would always be all ears if there is anything the LC wishes
to share with me or wishes to ask any questions.
BDs main duty includes creating relations with the corporate world and
also build LCs clientele to sell our core product, the Global Internship
Program and facilitate the process. Often regarded as the freaking hardest
job, I prefer the word challenging. Being students and sharing the same
ground as a veteran business person is indeed a challenging job.
Challenging is what makes it amazing.
Seizing every opportunity to network and spread the word, handling
ridiculous amounts of emails and calls, sticking to the professional code of
conduct, being a live AIESEC ambassador, handling those painful
rejections, picking up oneself again, 24*7 market research, understanding
every business we contact, understanding and tailoring our business
prospect accordingly, patience, tenacity, moving up the relationship ladder,
thinking very very strategically. All this and more in life of a BD officer. But
heres this good thing about BD, you can try different ways, make mistakes
and see what works best for you! Rejections have always been hard, but
we cant let them stop us. Its hard only till you think its hard. LCs around
the country are doing it. Theres no way we cannot.

Some of the BD members here, Do you
know them well? Maybe next time you
could talk to them and know them and

Today we face a situation where we have not met our minimum required
ICX MOS in order to operate as a fully accredited member by AIESEC
Australia. There have been quite a few things that have led to this. But lets
not go there, bygones are bygones. Lets look at the present, AIESEC
Curtin as a LC is stronger than ever. This building momentum is absolutely
affecting me positively. My team of fantastic five looks great. Its only a
matter of time when they would be operating autonomously. I have a good
feeling about it. But heres the bottom-line, its going to require a harder
effort that what we are putting at the moment. And I see everyones up for
it. Lets walk into the future strong.
The upcoming month is very important for us. A raise any time before
Newcon would ensure our full membership. Lets just think about the
moment when we would have a raise, when we would be full member
again, and it should make us work harder. I thank the LC for their support;
do keep us in your prayers.
Success is moving from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm, I
certainly havent lost mine, neither has the LC. Peace. Theres no
challenge an AIESECer cannot meet and that includes the present one.
