It gives me great pleasure to deliver my first President’s Report under the newly named Redlands Coast Chamber of Commerce, and as the new sitting President! Being a Redlands resident my entire life, I am extremely motivated to see our Coast thrive and excited I get to be a driving force in that.
Since the AGM, the newly formed Committee have jumped right in to continue to deliver an extremely well attended and informative October Breakfast. Focussing on innovation in the Health Care Sector, keynote speaker Dr George Margelis spoke on learning from technologies across all industry sectors, understanding barriers, collaboration and the technology to be leveraged. Topics that are extremely relevant for all industry bodies, not just those attending in the Health Care Sector.
On November 23rd, our biggest annual event will be held at Sheldon College, the Redland Business and Retail (BAR) Awards. Already more than 580 tickets have been sold. This is the opportunity for all Redlands Coast businesses to showcase excellence in their sectors. Whilst all finalists have been named and judging is almost complete, it is not too late to get involved. Sponsoring a trophy, for a very low investment, will see your brand not only in front of the hundreds of attendees on the evening but in follow up publicity around the Awards. I urge you to take advantage of this event and get involved! As a Redlands based business owner myself, my company has been involved in the past 4 years and I can honestly say we get more out of the event than we have ever invested.
As we near the end 2019, we look forward to inviting members and friends to join us for an Informal Networking evening at Barcella Restaurant Victoria Point at the start of December. It will be a great casual way to end our events calendar.
Tell me what you would like to see, we are YOUR Chamber! We are here to support our business community to be as successful as possible.
