Tickets for the third BGSOBA Business Breakfast on 11 November – The Business of Sport – are on sale now.
Speakers include Deputy CEO of Trade and Investment Queensland, Richard Watson ‘85, and Clayton Cooke ‘87, a 25-year veteran of the sports media industry. And for anyone thinking of buying their own sports franchise, Russell Wilson shares his experience as the owner of a professional US hockey team. Chris Titley ’98 of Morgans will again moderate the panel discussion.
A new initiative of the BGSOBA this year, the Business Breakfasts feature industry thought-leaders who have made an impact in their fields. In May, BGS Old Boys Philip Noble ‘82, Chief Executive of Queensland Treasury Corporation, and Ross Israel ’85, Head of QIC Global Infrastructure, led a panel discussing the path to economic recovery post COVID-19.
September’s breakfast focused on Entrepreneurship in the Digital Economy and was equally well-received, with Old Boys of all ages eager to hear from BGS Old Boy Brett Clark ’85, founder of ePharmacy, and Steve Baxter of Shark Tank fame.
Attendees have commented on the great mix of younger and more established Old Boys in the room, and the fantastic networking opportunities.
The first two Business Breakfasts sold out quickly, so get in early and book now. The Business of Sport Breakfast is open to all BGS community members, who are encouraged to invite their peers and business associates.
