May 2021 - Presidents Report 


We are in a business events season. An intimate group of our members were privileged to attend a special presentation and tour of Griffith University’s Institute of Glycomics on 27 May 2021 following by networking.


Griffith University’s Institute for Glycomics is a flagship biomedical research institute based right here on the Gold Coast, with a unique approach to the discovery and development of diagnostics, vaccines and treatments for some of the world’s most devastating cancers and infectious diseases. You can see photos of the event in the gallery on our website.


The Chamber Board also have a table for the Southport Business Alliance Corporate Breakfast on Wednesday 2 June at Southport Sharks to hear from Study Gold Coast CEO Alfred Slogrove and I will report back next month on the event.


Remember to watch our Events page and our News page for these events.


For example did you know you can join us for a free breakfast workshop event Tuesday 8 June 2021 at The Club, Parkwood Village to explore how sustainable practices can maximise business savings and build a better resilient business?


Look out for the Southport Chamber’s special opportunity Business After Dark networking event on 7 July 2021 at the brand new Exhibitionist Bar at the top of the HOTA Gallery sponsored by Corporate Sponsor McLaughlins Lawyers.


You can register on our Events Page for this event proudly brought to you by the Gold Coast North Chamber Commerce, the Southport Chamber of Commerce and CCIQ (Chamber of Commerce and Industry Qld).


Also diarise the 2021 Gold Coast Business and Jobs Expo on 24 June at the Carrara Indoor Sports Centre and visit Southport Chamber representatives at our stand at the Expo.
