April 2013 Breakfast Guest Speakers:

Kathleen Green - Gecko - Gold Coast and Hinterland Environment Council

The Lock the Gate Alliance was formed in 2010 following community meetings in New South Wales and Queensland. Over the eastern states, people were raising concern about the rapid expansion of coal and coal seam gas developments. A declaration was made by the group: farmers would lock their gates to these industries. Two years on and the Alliance continues to gain momentum with rural and urban communities over Australia stepping up to defend their land, water, and future from the coal and coal seam gas industries.

Brenda Jackson - Job Development Officer, Cerebral Palsy League, Mylestones Employment

Recently released by the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry titled “Employ Outside the Box – The Business Case for Employing People with Disability”. This outlines the untapped potential of employing people with a disability, and encourages members of Chambers of Commerce to consider utilizing this source of employees to meet their business needs.

Mylestones Employment is a Disability Employment Service that is dedicated to supporting companies who seek to employ people with disabilities. They provide an extensive recruitment process that matches the skills of the employee to the skills and requirements of the job. They will be talking to us regarding an offer of government incentives, and work with an employer to maximize employee efficiency and productivity.

Mylestones Employment will discuss the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry initiative, and present information about their service.
