Suits and stories: a corporate breakfast with a difference
Friday, 10 May 2013
Discussion of sport and politics could be seen as a less than ideal way to start a Friday; except if it involves a football legend, one of Tasmania’s most affable political characters and a delicious array of breakfast fare!
This is what Old Boys and other members of our wider business community were treated to at the inaugural Corporate Connections Breakfast in April. The ‘On The Couch’ style interview (with MC, Old Boy and Board Member John Groom (OB ‘86), saw Brent Crosswell (former Australian Rules Footballer who represented Carlton, North Melbourne and Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL) during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s) and Indpendent MLC Jim Wilkinson (OB ‘69) (Jim played for South Melbourne in the VFL, and represented Tasmania in Cricket). The topic was: Culture in sport – are we reaching a tipping point? Questions from the floor provided openings for a very entertaining discussion. Guests enjoyed the chance to meet other members of our business community and we look forward to the next breakfast event.
