Chamber nabs Pisasale as speaker

IPSWICH Lord Mayor Paul Pisasale will be the guest speaker at the next Warwick Chamber of Commerce VIP Business Breakfast.

Chamber President David Littleproud made the announcement today, saying how pleased he was that the Chamber was able to attract a speaker of the calibre of Paul Pisasale.

“Paul is regarded as a leader in the areas of regional economic development and tourism. His legendary dedication to the City of Ipswich, as well as his drive and enthusiasm, are very evident to all that come in contact with him,” Mr Littleproud said.

“He is passionate about working at a regional level, breaking down barriers and ensuring that people are the number one priority for local government.”

Mr Littleproud said he was confident that with Paul Pisasale as guest speaker, the 2011 VIP Business Breakfast in early March would be a sell-out affair.

“The Chamber’s aim with our VIP Breakfasts has always been to have excellent speakers, serve good food and provide an opportunity for the Warwick business community to network in a relaxed environment,” he said.

“I have heard Paul speak many times and he is a truly entertaining speaker, as well as being able to share his ideas in a down to earth, practical way.

“One of his most famous actions as Lord Mayor of Ipswich was to buy a whole block of the Ipswich CBD because he didn’t like the way the owners were looking after it.

“Not that the Chamber would be suggesting that in Warwick.”

The Breakfast will be held next Wednesday March 9 at Rupert’s Bar and Grill at the Coachman’s Inn, Warwick. Starting time is 7.15 for 7.30am, cost $39 payable on booking.
