Business Leaders Debate City's Future

A Who’s Who list of 50 of the city’s business community joined city planning futurist Kate Meyrick and industry stalwart Paul Donovan to discuss the Gold Coast’s needs as it nears a population of 1 million people.
The lunch, which was held specially for last year’s winners of the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards, was hosted by KMPG Gold Coast partner in charge Adam Twemlow, who serves on the Awards’ committee and is also chairman of the judges.
The crowd also heard from Medical Rescue co-founder Dr Michael Smith who spoke about their pride in winning the Business of the Year title and their charity efforts.
Gold Coast Business Excellence Award deputy president Richard Holt said the private winners’ lunch had become a popular tradition for the awards.
“On the night of the gala awards, there is a lot going on and a lot of excitement, so it’s difficult for the winner of the annual categories to touch base with each other,’’ said Mr Holt.
“The winners’ lunch allows members to meet and congratulate fellow winners and gives a few members of the awards committee to say congratulations as well.”
The 2023 awards are set to be launched next month, with the entries for the May Awards being due at 5pm, on Tuesday, May 2.
The awards, now in their 28th year, aim to foster pride in the city’s business community and highlight its important as a business hub. Some of the city’s best-known companies can claim to have been winners.
