As a community that has unlimited access to the beautiful waters which surround our island paradise, we owe it to our children to provide them with activities that allow them to become educated in water safety and to make the most of such a great environment. Arguably one of the best ways to do this is to encourage them to become a Surf Lifesaving Nipper and, with Spring now here, the right time to do this is now.

The Nippers movement was founded in 1968 and well known sports people such as Trevor Hendy, Susie O’Neill and Jack Reed have all spent their young days as Nippers, being instructed in surf lifesaving and surf awareness, competing in sports activities, learning surf lifesaving and first aid skills and enjoying the social activities that are provided for both children and parents.

Excited to be Nippers

The Surf Lifesaving clubs are not only a way for kids to be offered a platform to senior lifesaving roles, they are an activity so all the family and parents can be involved with the Nippers by being trained to provide water safety and also take on a role as an age manager. The Bribie Island Surf Lifesaving Club Nippers activities are held each Sunday morning from the September school holidays until March and the first day for the 2018/2019 season is September 23rd.

A highly successful sales and leadership career working in a number of different and very competitive industries. Engaging with decision makers at all levels in business and government. Three decades employed by corporations, SME businesses in senior roles and almost twelve years operating as a freelance contractor has equipped me well for all aspects of business. Whether leading and mentoring sales teams, or in a direct sales role I enjoy the challenge to meet and exceed expectations. Making a real and tangible difference in either a team environment or as an individual is an important personal goal I have consistently achieved throughout my career. In all of my business and personal dealings over the years there is one issue that stands out above all others - communication. Excellent communication skills creates trust, helps with mutually beneficial outcomes and above all cements long lasting positive relationships. I strive everyday to communicate effectively with the people I encounter.
