Media Release – BREAKFAST AN OPPORTUNITY TO CHECK BUNDABERG’S ECONOMIC HEALTH

It’s almost time again for the annual Bundaberg Region “health check” with the Bundy4Breakfast economic development update scheduled for December 1.

The breakfast, an annual commitment by Bundaberg Regional Council, provides a forum where the latest in business data is analysed and a host of highly credentialed keynote and guest speakers will address the economic opportunities for the region.

Council’s Economic Development portfolio spokesman Cr Greg Barnes said the breakfast meeting provided an excellent networking opportunity in addition to providing exposure to the major initiatives currently unfolding across the region.

“The Regional Economic Report Card and Analysis is provided by Reuben Lawrence of Lawrence Consulting and details growth statistics and their economic impact for the Bundaberg Region across a number of platforms.

“From a Council perspective, the breakfast will provide an opportunity to expand on many of the projects that are currently underway or planned for rollout across the region.”

Cr Barnes said the revitalisation of the CBD and the riverside precinct will be two areas discussed while the proposals surrounding the Port of Bundaberg will interest attendees.

“During a panel session where we invite locals to share their success stories we are fortunate to have Brett Lakey from Lady Musgrave Experiences, Don Johansson of Christensen Industries and Gavin Burton representing Knauf Australia Pty Ltd attending to provide an insight on the success of their ventures.”

Mayor Mal Forman said the breakfast really has become a flagship event for the business community with the excellent mix of business, political and industry leaders participating.

Cr Forman said there were many positive projects unfolding across the region which were both exciting and potential economic drivers.

“I propose to provide an update on the results of several meetings held in recent weeks with State and Federal government ministers and representatives and which have ramifications for the entire Wide Bay Burnett.”

Cr Forman said Bundy4Breakfast would be held at the Brothers Sports Club on Tuesday, December 1 from 6.45am until 8.45am.

Registrations for the event should be made by Monday, November 24 online at businessbundaberg.com.au (follow the links) or in person at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre (phone 41304100).
