Chamber update - February 2016

04 Feb 2016

Welcome to 2016, one month has already finished. Have you set some goals for the year? Have you made a start?

We have been active over the break and have high expectations for the chamber and its members over the coming year.

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything,” said George Bernard Shaw

Do you remember Kodak? They could not embrace change. They kept focusing on film even though they invented digital photography. They lost sight of the future and became another relic to old thinking. If you cannot embrace change, you will become irrelevant.

The new executive committee has embraced change and we are excited to confirm that we have a new executive officer.

Meet Shane Wylie, chamber executive officer

Thanks are due to Joh Maxwell, Paul Keisler and Josephine Tan . It was their efforts that helped us find Shane. In their words, he ticks all the boxes.

Tony Bailo commented on the fact that Shane has led some of Australia’s largest private colleges with workforces of over 200 people with as many as 66 sites. He said that would be a great goal, to have 200 chamber members by the end of 2016.

The fact that Shane has represented Australia on various trade missions and spoken internationally on behalf of the Federal Government will add valuable skills to the executive, said Glenn Donnelly.

We all agree with Yvonne Zhou-Grundy that it is Shane’s numerous website and database skills that will add real value for members during 2016 as we enhance our profile and communication.

Chinese New Year

The launch is Wednesday, February 3 and will set the scene for 16 days of vibrant festivities, linking events and activations across the city for the first time in Melbourne.
