Destineers meeting

DESTINEERS is a peer-facilitated mentoring group, where business, government and community leaders can come together to share in the collective wisdom, experience and knowledge of the group. Networking is a natural component of the group.

Their next meeting will be on Thursday, October 27 at Kingston House, Channon St, Gympie. The topic for this session is Marketing and Branding: Are we telling our story?

Members arrive, connect and have something to eat from 12.30-1pm. Once all (or most) of the members have arrived, the convenor will allow for short, simple self-introductions (from 1pm).

A member shares a challenge that he or she is experiencing in business, or shares some current thoughts with the group. The Business Challenge or Business Discussion item is presented to the group (this usually takes about 15 minutes) and then the group interacts to provide wisdom, guidance or practical solutions to the presenter.

Where the presenter shares current and topical business-related thoughts, discussion may centre on the question or thought that is raised. Interaction and participation is greatly encouraged. It is important to note that in the case of a business challenge being presented, the focus of the group should remain on the presenter.
