An Evening under the Stars at Sudima Suites

lucky business card drawOn Tuesday 30 July 2013, The Woolloongabba Business Association hosted a networking evening with Mayoor Thakeria, the CEO OF Sudima Suites.

The evening was made more intimate by a number of fire places causing the 36 persons attending to congregate together to stare in wonder at the view from atop the Sudima Suites. There is an almost 360 degree view of Brisbane but most amazing was the view of the heavens. Up above the city lights the stars were clearly shining and it was reliably reported that shooting stars were seen in the heavens.

Our VP Suzanne organised for Blue Gulabi, Brews Brothers and Vespa Pizza to cater for the evening. The ginger and chilli beer paired remarkably well with the beef vindaloo lifting the ambient temperate for all consumers. The pizza caused somewhat of a stir with all the men disappearing from conversation to snatch up the tasty morsels. Thank you to the proprietors of those businesses as the food was excellent and in good supply.

gabba drinking buddiesA business card draw was held with prizes supplied by Sudima Suites, Snow Scene and Yellow Cabs. After drawing his own business card for first prize (a night at Sudima Suites) Mayoor generously had a redraw and Tracey Walsh won the main prize. The SnowScene prize went to the most unlikely snow bunny Glenn Maymann and the third draw saw John from Muscillo Romano win Cab Vouchers from Yellow Cabs. Thank you to all those businesses for donating their prizes.

A cameo appearance was made by Councillor Helen Abrahams who made time in her busy schedule to mix and mingle with the rest of us.

After a suitably short introduction by the President Glendon Young our VP Suzanne Bosenquet thanked the businesses and attendees and Glendon thanked Suzanne for her effort in organising the night. Everyone appeared to enjoy the opportunity to meet and network with some of their fellow business men and women

An Evening with Kevin Rudd MLA

Kevin RuddOn Thursday 8 November 2012, The Woolloongabba Business Association hosted an evening with Kevin Rudd federal member for the electorate of Griffith.

The evening was made more intimate as the number of members attending was less than expected. Kevin move amongst the members talking to each personally. After a suitably short introduction by the President Glendon Young (Kevin does not need much introduction) he spoke of the initiatives by the government to help small business after which he fielded questions from the audience.

He spoke on Federal State co –operation, the effect of the high Australian dollar, the move in Asia to bench mark against the Chinese RMB instead of the US dollar, the position with funding for the cross river tunnel and sundry other topics.

The Association provided drinks and nibbles catered by the Chalk Hotel.
