Kathryn Bordonaro in europe

Lunch with Kathryn Bordonaro

Imagine you are a busy Gippsland woman in business and you plan the trip of a life time. You head off to Europe in January for five months for the most amazing life experience restoring the garden of a Chateau  …. and then COVID-19 hits.

This is what happened to our guest speaker for August, Gippsland finance broker Kathryn Bordonaro.

You are invited to join us for lunch online while we chat with Kathryn about what she did, how they got home, and what happened after they got home. 

Kathryn has also offered to share her top 5 financial tips for women, and will be online to answer your questions after the event.

Meet our speaker

Kathryn BordonaroKathryn has 30 years experience in commercial finance, and has been a commercial finance broker for over 19 years.
In 2014, Kathryn was named as the Small Business Champion of Australia by COSBOA (Council of Small Business Organisations of Australia). This award was given to represent the many hours of volunteer work that Kathryn has provided on behalf of the small business community – particularly focusing on Access to credit for Small Business.
In 2017, Kathryn was awarded the title of ‘Association Leader of the Year’ at the Women in Finance Awards. This was in recognition of her service as vice president of the Commercial Asset Finance Brokers Association (CAFBA).
Kathryn has walked the corridors of parliament house in Canberra many times over and has contributed to shaping legislation. Regularly quoted in the media, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age newspaper in March 2016 named Kathryn as one of the nine most influential female entrepreneurs in Australia. In this article she named her clients as being her biggest source of inspiration in every challenge she takes on.
When not busy chasing down the best deals for her customers, Kathryn can be found working in her garden – which she hopes one day will be worthy enough to be part of the Garden Open day scheme. A life member of CAFBA and holder of Diploma in Finance and Mortgage Broking Management, Kathryn is married to Paul, and is the proud mum of Taylah and Matthew.
