“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.
