Dennis Watt will address the meeting at Kingscliff on Friday. Photo supplied.

To celebrate Small Business Month the Kingscliff & District Chamber of Commerce will be hosting an exclusive free talk at the Kingscliff Beach Bowls Club

The event ‘Rising From The Ashes’ is an evening with Dennis Watt, Chairman of the Gold Coast Titans.

Chamber president James Owen says they are really excited to have Dennis come and talk and share his extensive experience of turning struggling organisations around.

‘Not only is he a phenomenal organisational strategist – a Titan of the business world – but he’s also a fantastic communicator and a really down to earth bloke.

‘We decided to name the event “Rising from the Ashes” because of the correlation between the Titan’s turnaround that Dennis has led and the journey we are all on with COVID recovery.

Dennis joined Titans at the end of 2017 when the Frizelle and Kelly families took over the ownership of the club from the NRL.

Prior to that he was chairman of the Brisbane Broncos (2013-17) having joined the board in 2003. Before becoming chairman of the Broncos, Dennis was general manager of Queensland Newspapers for News Corporation Australia, which owns sixty nine percent of the club.

News Corp sent Dennis to Melbourne in 2010 to take charge of their rugby league assets – the Broncos, the Melbourne Storm and, at that stage, half of the NRL; and to help the Storm get back on its feet after the salary cap issues, so he knows a lot about wrangling hard times and turning them around

The event will be held this Friday, October 16 at 5.30pm for 6pm start. The event is free but you need to book as tickets are strictly limited owing to COVID-19 restrictions.

RSVP: [email protected].
