    Queensland Resources Council Chief Executive Ian Macfarlane

    The Queensland resources sector has defied the COVID-19 global pandemic economy by adding 10,259 jobs – or more than one extra job every hour – over the quarter to February this year, according to ABS data.

    Queensland Resources Council (QRC) Chief Executive Ian Macfarlane said "the ABS data showed a 15 percent increase in direct jobs employed in the resources sector to reach 76,854 across Queensland over the past 12 months…. so Queenslanders have every reason to feel optimistic about the future as our sector continues to go from strength to strength…” Attend this exciting event to hear from Ian Macfarlane as he talks about how a global pandemic has further enabled the development of QLD’s energy & resources sector, and see how your company may be able to benefit from opportunities in this rapid growth industry.

    Ian Macfarlane was elected to Federal Parliament in 1998 and became Australia’s longest serving Federal Resources and Energy Minister and the Coalition’s longest serving Federal Industry and Innovation Minister with over 14 years of experience in both Cabinet and shadow ministerial positions before retiring from parliament in May 2016.

    Ian is the Chief Executive of the Queensland Resources Council, a non-executive director of Woodside Petroleum, the Chairman of the Innovative Manufacturing Co-operative Research Centre, a member of the University of Queensland Rural Clinical School Toowoomba Community Advisory Committee, a Board Member of both Toowoomba Surat Basin Enterprise and METS Ignited Australia Limited, an Honorary Fellow of AusIMM Minerals Institute, and a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

    What Got You Here Won’t Get You There: Dale Carnegie

    “How successful people become even more successful!”

    Top performing organisations have  a proven track record with a high reputation for delivering results. This process has been chosen because you are already good at what you DO,  so what’s beyond good? What’s better then the current status quo for you and your business? 

    In this fun and engaging 90 minutes workshop we will identify what has taken you to this point, “Here”, and are you happy with “Here”? Gallup Engagement studies have proven that individual performance affects team performance, and team performance affects an organisation.

    For you and your team to move to the next level “There”, what are some of the behaviours we need to adjust individually? Behaviours that will have a direct impact on you achieving  your next desired outcome.

    Brisbane West Chamber of Commerce has partnered with Dale Carnegie Australia to bring this high-value, in-person workshop to our members to help your business thrive in 2021. The value of this workshop is $250, book your ticket as a chamber member for $35 or less and non-chamber members for $55.

    Attend this workshop and THRIVE!

    Key WorkshopPoints

    • The Paradox of Success: Four Roadblocks to Change
    • Twenty(one) Habits that Hold You Back
    • The Power of Feedback
    • “Feedforward” in Action
    • Identifying Blind Spots
