Dear Member,

Brisbane Chapter Advance ‘19 will bring you, “Up Close and Personal” with some of Brisbane’s most iconic businesses all while you learn with a laugh. This outstanding agenda will be hosted by Corporate Communication Specialist and Stand Up Comedian, Terry Williams.

EO’s purpose is to change the lives of the entrepreneurs that change the world.

This year, our unique Brisbane Chapter Advance brings together your personal, business and region’s today and tomorrow - to help prepare, inspire and propel you into your tomorrow.

You’ll learn how to be a more effective version of yourself, and engage with your staff and peers more effectively - through a mind-opening workshop that teaches you how to take a more constructive mindset to every part of your life.

You’ll hear from inspiring entrepreneurs, who have created and run household name brands.

You’ll learn how Brisbane is transforming and get an ‘EO only’ behind the scenes tours and insights of projects that will bring an extra 3,000,000 people to the River City each year… Pretty significant in a city of 2,100,000 people!

There’s parts of the event that welcome employees, parts that are members only and concluding with a special spouse/partners event.  Join us, tickets will go fast!
