Ezi Magbegor signing her contract with the Deakin Melbourne Boomers in the Pesel & Carr office.
March has been an action-packed month for a number of our clients, from announcing basketball superstars to groundbreaking research, we have been busy supporting these exciting initiatives.
Deakin Melbourne Boomers
The Deakin Melbourne Boomers welcomed one of the best 18 year old basketballers in the world and Australian basketball’s most promising young player Eziyoda (Ezi) Magbegor to the team with a three-year signing, officially announced on 28th March.
With a name meaning “determination” in Isoku, her parent’s native Nigerian language, Ezi’s resolve didn’t waver at the promise of US college offers. Her decision to stay in Melbourne was clear – be close to her family, develop her professional career representing her home town in the WNBL and Australia on the international stage.
Additionally, Ezi will be able to develop her professional career alongside one of the best Australian female basketballers and fellow forward, Lauren Jackson who describes Ezi as “one of the world’s genuine rising stars.”
Her success story was featured in Herald Sun on page three of the sports section which you can read here. Pesel & Carr looks forward to supporting the Deakin Melbourne Boomers for the upcoming WNBL season as they have their eyes on the 2018/19 championship title.
Forest and Wood Products Australia
World-first research by market research firm Pollinate for Forest and Wood Products Australia (FWPA), and further analysed by the University of Canberra, has revealed wood is a key plank in the business case for bringing nature into the office.
Presented by Associate Professor Jacki Schirmer at the Green Cities conference on 14th March, evidence found the more natural looking wooden surfaces workers could see from their workstation, the higher their workplace satisfaction and wellbeing, affording significant potential benefits to productivity. The effect on wellbeing is greatest when wood is used in combination with other natural elements such as plants, water features and natural light.

Lyric Opera of Melbourne
Throughout the month of March, Lyric has been ramping up rehearsals for the opening of its 2018 season with Francis Poulenc’s Les Mamelles de Tiresias (The Breasts of Tiresias) – one of the craziest operas to ever take to the stage.
From 7th-14th April at Chapel Off Chapel in Prahran, the wacky comedy shakes up the Melbourne opera scene with a tale that tackles gender norms through the biological constraints of a woman’s breasts.
The one act, one-hour show opens as the dissatisfied and ambitious Therese frees herself of her breasts – which float away as two balloons – before departing to take over the world. Her emasculated husband is then forced to take over the childbirth, notching up a remarkable 40,000 babies in just one day!
More information and tickets are available through Chapel Off Chapel.
Earlier in March, news on Quintessential Equity’s new soon to be closed Master Fund, focusing on distressed property, was featured in Fairfax.
Director Harry Rosenberg expressed he is extremely proud of the Quintessential Equity team for their hard work and expertise, and is humbled by the overwhelming support received from our investors.
