Growth plan for Gympie jobs, investment outlined
The Gympie Chamber of Commerce has sold out its breakfast meeting two and a half weeks ahead of the next event at the RSL on March 17.
This has never happened before, according to Chamber president Tony Goodman. Key industry leaders from Nolan Meats and Laminex are expected to be there, Mayor Glen Hartwig and all eight Gympie region councillors.
“It would have a lot to do with the guest speaker Neil Glentworth, who heads up GWI and Redman solutions,” Mr Goodman said.
Mr Glentworth is guest speaker at the March 17 meeting.
“Neil‘s no nonsense and inspiring approach has delighted our members at previous breakfasts,” Mr Goodman said.
“We have welcomed him back, to present a much higher level version on what he has spoken about previously....to grow this region, to attract new business and outside investment and to create new jobs.
“The other reason being that, the direction the Chamber has taken over the last two years has resonated with our members and the business community, that has seen standing room only breakfast events and that has created a lot of momentum going forward.”
This time around, Mr Glentworth will be deep-diving into how Gympie region businesses can make the rubber hit the road.
1. Gympie, our way forward. Practical steps, meaningful outcomes.
2. Our direction, your growth opportunity.
3. Advance Gympie - Our growth plan.
4. Our opportunity, our plan, your leadership - Gympie futures.
5. Gympie Futures, activating our potential.
