2M CEO Tea Dietterich travelled to Sydney for an inspiring evening at the Turnbull Residence organised by the German-Australian Chamber of Industry and Commerce and very kindly hosted by the Chamber’s President Lucy Hughes Turnbull AO and the Hon. Malcolm Turnbull, Federal Minister for Communications. Tea was able to catch up with the Board of the Chamber and other members across a diverse range of industries. Our CEO has a long standing history with the German Australian Chamber in Sydney starting her Australian career there in 1997 and our company having being a member for the past 17 years. Meeting with the Turnbull’s in such a stunning setting at their Point Piper residence and catching up with who will become hopefully our next Prime Minister made for an interesting soirée. As a special guest, Senator the Hon. Mathias Cormann, Federal Minister for Finance, spoke at the reception. On the business side, there were discussions about the possible EU-Australia Free Trade Agreement that was mentioned during last year’s visits by European leaders to Australia, including the visit from German Chancellor Dr Merkel. 2M is an active member of the German Australian Chamber and advises German clients on market entry into Australia, cross cultural aspects and provides language services. Tea has presented at various occasions including delivering a webinar in the “Doing Business Down Under” series late last year.
