It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Bring your holiday cheer and mingle with your peers before the holiday season kicks in!

2019 has been both rewarding and at times challenging for directors, and what better way to reflect on achievements than in the company of like-minded peers in the local business community.

Don’t miss the chance to reconnect and socialise with other members and guests; and reflect on and celebrate the achievements for the year.

Our end of the year celebration also presents a wonderful opportunity to hear from our guest speaker Dr Miles Jakeman FAICD, Deputy Chairman, The Citadel Group Limited (ASX:CGL) on the importance of developing excellent networks and how to get the most from those networks.

We look forward to welcoming you to our final event in 2019 and say cheers to the festive season!
