B.E.N: Business Edge Network
1st June 2018
This morning we interviewed Colin Wheeler a Gold Coast Businessman who had immigrated from the cooler English shores some 30 years ago. Colin’s reason for relocating . . .the Queensland sun was the lure.
Thank you Colin for your time this morning informing and entertaining with your knowledge in the world of Document Solutions and its fast evolving landscape which impacts the way we as individuals and teams live in and interact with the modern office environment.
Colin also brought the understanding of the ‘Homeless” in our Gold Coast streets and just who these people actually are, citing one surprising fact, that 60% of our Homeless people, are women and children who have been negatively impacted by marriage and or family breakdowns. We make the generalisations that suit our ability to function and for most that means walking on the other side of the street, so as not to be impacted or drawn into someone else’s “Can of Worms” . . . Colin lifted our eyes and awareness. If you can, please support Colin and the CEO Sleepout at CBUS Stadium on the 21st June, make a small shift in your thinking and see a larger and I am sure more rewarding change wash through your everyday lifestyles . . . very often the change or reward that you are looking for in life comes via an entirely abstract or disconnected place or event. As Colin said this has to be one of the most rewarding “Networking” opportunities you will ever engage in. All the money raised on the Gold Coast remains on the Gold Coast.
Thank you once again Colin

Work Experience for Amy
Jump on Amy's page and take a look at her request, if you are unable to accomodate Amy then maybe you can refer her on to your colleagues. These Student work experience placements I believe are a very important function in the pathway to future careers.
My personal experience as a parent with work experience was great, but also as a case in point my son Zach who some of you may remember spoke recently at a B.E.N breakfast received generous encouragement and mentorship from Andrew Wiltshire - yes Rohan's boss. What may seem small and inconvenient in our busy work lives can in fact have substantial benefits for these young aspiring adults.
