Welcome to our new dinner program with Australia’s leading dietitians!
The dinners are designed to have a limited number of attendees (maximum 30) so that you have the opportunity to meet and chat to our guest speaker.
There will be time for you to ask any questions; to get the ball rolling we have asked each speaker to speak on a certain topic, but the Q+A session is for you to ask them questions on any topic.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming dinner events!
Thanks to The a2 Milk Company for supporting a series of dinner events
Feedback from our first dinner with Susie Burrell in Brisbane
Thank you Dietitian Connection for a great evening with Susies Burrell. Being new to Brisbane this was a great opportunity to not only meet and engage with the speaker one on one but to also network with other dietitians. Would highly recommend attending!
Dietitian Connection is like no other connecting platform that I have ever been apart of. The dinners are intimate and the speakers relevant to todays needs and expectations as well as incredibly inspirational. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to network or just find out more about the industry. It was a pleasure being part of the inaugural dinner and money really cannot buy this type of experience.
I found the dinner with Susie Burrell and the Dietitian Connection invaluable. The chance to get one on one advice gave me so much motivation to work hard and become a dietitian with a difference. Thank you to Maree and Susie for the opportunity. I loved every bit of the night!
I really liked the intimacy of the event. The group was small enough to get to talk to everyone. I loved being able to sit next to Susie and get some great advice. The networking opportunity is priceless. Thank you.
