YSPN Launch - Climbing the Mountain to Success

The Young Sikh Professionals Network (YSPN), an initiative of Sikh Youth Australia (SYA), successfully launched at its inaugural marquee event, Climbing the Mountain to Success: Leveraging Your Networks.

“The event was inspirational. It exceeded my expectations. Surely, a big success!” said Manjot Singh, Financial Analyst.

The event featured a panel discussion between two very successful speakers, DrPerminder Sachdev AM, head of Neuropsychiatry UNSW and Giam Swiegers, CEO Deloitte Australia. Both speakers, at the peaks of their respective industries, shared personal insights to the ambitious young crowd on how they too could achieve this success. Giam imparted valuable wisdom that validated the need for YSPN’s existence, “the power of your network is far more significant than the value you can bring to a company.”

The event was well received amongst the audience of ambitious young Sikhs, and students from the University of Sydney Business School, from a variety of backgrounds. Attendees were motivated by the calibre of the speakers, the universal insights, and the professionalism of the event. Jagpreet Singh, an assistant accountant attending the event, praised the idea, “It was a valuable experience, I loved listening to the speakers and I was able to meet some great people on the night.”

YSPN aims to be the preeminent vehicle for successful Sikhs to connect and learn from one another and to profile that success to the wider Australian community. YSPN has a vision to build a sustainable organisation and to promote and profile the successes of the Sikh community. Additionally, YSPN will be delivering a series of networking events to engage Sikh professionals throughout the year. The next event, pure informal networking, will be held very soon, at the Sydney offices of DDB.
