President's Message

A Clear Vision of Success

Our November luncheon was another sell-out, with everyone keen to hear from Bernadette Inglis, CEO of The Newcastle Permanent Building Society.

She provided a captivating presentation about her challenging year as leader during unprecedented times. Bernadette communicated the power of having a clear vision of what success looks like and her amazing team that held a willingness to mobilise quickly to different roles in the organisation.

Bernadette was very clear on the focus of customers as the centre of their decisions and knowing how to adapt quickly to the changing needs in the marketplace.

In was impressive to hear the Perm has donated $1.5m to charities this year.

We were also thrilled to hear from Jason Bourke from The Rescue Westpac Helicopter Service announcing their “Bids for Billboards” promotion which is a fantastic initiative which will help save lives!

We have recently opened our membership for 2021. Click here to join or renew now.

Next month is our last luncheon for the year and we have invited Peter Drayton back to showcase his wines to the Club, and we also have a surprise guest that will surely provide some great entertainment during the luncheon.

Please make sure you set aside the 8th December as always, our December luncheon is a more relaxed fun occasion in celebration of the outgoing President, and welcoming the new President.

We will also be holding our AGM prior to this luncheon and have sent out an invitation this week to inviting nominations for our Committee. I am pleased to say that several our committee members have indicated they would like to return for another year, but we will still be doing an open call out for positions.

If you are interested, please reach out to our Senior-Vice President Stephanie Jordan.
