If you gauge the social health of a community by its active participants in their clubs and community groups then Bribie Island must be among the healthiest socially active communities in Australia per head of population. The sheer number of clubs and interest groups and the number of people who actively participate in those organisations on Bribie is a sign our little island paradise is also a healthy society.

Take our cover story about the Bribie Island Bicycle Users Group (BUG) for instance. With 93 active and financial members it is typical of the high participation rate enjoyed by other social and sporting clubs, voluntary non-for-profit organisations and interest groups on Bribie and in the region.

This issue of The Bribie Islander magazine is again very much community focussed. We enjoy covering the wide variety of interest groups that add to the social fabric of the island and region. We try within the constraints of the size of this magazine to give voice to as many groups as possible.

We trust you enjoy learning more about the community around you through their great work or simply the interesting activities they undertake. Maybe it will encourage you to join a social, sporting or become a volunteer at a community group. Or let us know about your club or group’s activities.

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.
