ROTARY – Getting Down to Business in the Whitsundays

Announcing our second monthly Business Networking Evening 

After the success of our first Business Networking Evening in February, where attendees learned how their business opportunities could be enhanced by the work of the Greater Whitsunday Alliance (GW3), we are pleased to invite you to our second Business Networking Event to be held on Tuesday, 20 March 2018. See your invitation attached.

We are excited to announce that the keynote speaker for the March event will be Paul Darrouzet, owner of the award-winning Abell Point Marina, Airlie Beach.

Paul’s topic will be:

“Vision for the marine industry in the Whitsundays and opportunities for local businesses”

“Abell Point Marina is well placed to take advantage of increased superyacht visitation and owner Paul Darrouzet has plans to build a “state-of-the-art” facility at the second basin of Bowen Harbour.

‘With the recent opening of the Whitsundays to superyachts and the enormous number of vessels travelling to and from Auckland for the next Americas Cup, demand for the facility will be strong,’ he said.”

Whitsunday Times – 25 August 2017

If you are in business in the Airlie Beach, Proserpine or Bowen areas – whether you are in the marine industry, a tourism operator, a service provider or in hospitality, come along to learn how you can “get on board” with this new venture.

You will also:

MEET and network with leaders of other local businesses, organisations and community groups

DISCOVER the plans the Rotary Club of Airlie Beach has for our community and how you can be involved.

Together, Rotarians apply our professional experience and personal commitment to tackle our communities’ most persistent problems, finding new, effective ways to enhance health, stability, and prosperity across the globe.  (Source: Rotary International).
