President's Report

SEBCC President

Wrap up from

Last Tuesday we had a thrilling time with our guest speaker, Taj Pabari, CEO of Australian School of Entrepreneurship. During the Breakfast, Taj shared the experience of exploring his interests, setting up his business, and becoming a young entrepreneur. 

This month is the last month of my presidency. In the past two years, I have witnessed the growth of SEBCC and changes we have brought to our community. It was my great honour contributing to our Chamber.  The next President will be Dominik Hartl-McWilliam, CEO of  McWilliam & CO Management & Business Advisory. I believe Dominik will bring his expertise in modern business to help the Chamber to be greater. SEBCC, the South East Brisbane Chamber of Commerce, which is also Strong, Effective, Brilliant, Constructive, and Cooperative, will continue to dedicate ourselves to connect our local businesses and contribute to a better community. 

Special Thanks to Des Bowler who’s worked tirelessly for the Chamber for many years and likewise Shane Cowan - both of whom have helped me immensely over this period. I have so much gratitude for commitment of our committee members, Phil Searle, Craig McCallum, Anastasia Xie and Terri Smallbon. 

I’m excited to see the direction and energy incoming President Dominik and emcee Craig McCallum will bring to this great community of business leaders. 

Wishing you all good luck in business.

SEBCC President Rebecca Llewelyn

Welcome to autumn everyone! It was a terrific turnout for Breakfast at Sunrise with our guest speaker Tom Freer from Wyntec. Tom spoke about the importance of human’s roles in cyber security. Comparing with the past decades, we receive a larger number of spam emails everyday. Some of them sneakily target at data stored in our computers, and some others are staring at the money in our accounts. These spam emails may come from a friend, supplier, client that you think you are familiar with, however dangers are just hiding behind the familiar things. During Tom’s speech, he gave us many effective ways to recognize these “bad guys” and protect your assets from becoming a target.

Our Business of the Month was Allan Hanson from Arcinvest. Though the years Allan has been consistently working on developing a reliable investment philosophy. He has come across many different types of investing and has kept an open mind about them all, as he researched and studied them. After all these years Allan has found the most reliable, consistent, and best returning method for long term investment is Value Investing. This method is based on buying good, solid, reliable business with a good income stream, a durable competitive advantage and good management for a reasonable price with a margin of safety, and holding onto them.

If you would like to showcase your business as a Business of the Month please contact me.

Have a great month in business!
