BBC WORLD NEWS - WOMEN IN MEDIA BREAKFAST 2013
TCM produced a Women In Media breakfast for BBC Worldwide at Cafe Sydney featuring Yalda Hakim, presenter and correspondent of BBC World News, as she shared her experiences as an Australian female journalist working internationally.
An extraordinary mix of women attended the event where they had the unique opportunity to listen to Yalda as she spoke with BBC News Sydney Correspondent Jon Donnison of her harrowing accounts of reporting.
Since fleeing Afghanistan as a baby and her families move to Sydney’s North Shore, she has found herself in remarkable situations reporting from a condemned factory filled with over 400 workers in Bangledesh, landing herself outside a door of a torture chamber where horrible acts were taking place and presenting from Ground Zero in New York City.
Guests enjoyed canapés on the balcony of the iconic Sydney venue with spectacular harbour views before being seated inside for breakfast.
