From her early career experience, Ros understands the enormous barriers that affect young people, even when they have a passion to pursue their dreams. She was inspired by the purpose of Western Chances to provide practical support and connection that is invaluable to young people in Melbourne’s west. Ros couldn’t resist becoming a part of the team who are changing lives.
Helping Ros to drive results for Western Chances is her extensive managerial experience. Her current role as managing director of Willett Marketing encompasses sponsorship and event management, digital communications and education campaigns working with corporates and government clients.
In addition to her professional experience, Ros is Chair of the Theatre Works board and sits on the Marketing and Fundraising Committee. She is also a member of the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation Marketing and Fundraising Advisory Committee.
Ros is the current Deputy Chair of the Western Chances Board, having joined the board 13 years ago in 2004. She is a member of the Executive committee and actively involved with Fundraising and Marketing activities. Ros has been a huge contributor to the recent strategic review of Western Chances and happily hosts all the board meetings at Willett Marketing. Thanks Ros for everything that you do for Western Chances.
