There aren’t many people in Australia that are not familiar with the name Ansett. There are also very few people in the Noosa area that don’t know the name Bob Ansett.
Bob, and his wife, Josie, have been long term residents of Noosa, having moved here from Melbourne many years ago. Most people will know that Bob Ansett was the driving force behind the protracted, very often overwhelming, task of trying to right the injustice of the forced amalgamation of Noosa’s council.
Whether you agree with the outcome or not, the story behind Bob’s determination and unceasing labour to bring this to a head, which has ultimately determined Noosa’s long-term future, is one that needs to be told. The Noosa Chamber of Commerce has asked Bob Ansett to speak at their April 9 meeting, to be held at the Noosa Lakes Australis Resort on Hilton Terrace.
His speech will not be about de-amalgamation or politics, it will be the story of a passionate, articulate and focused individual, who has shown us what the determination of one person can do. He rallied support, from often unexpected quarters, and proved to Noosa citizens that we have a right to speak out and to control our own destiny.
What makes an individual such as Bob Ansett, who could happily have splashed in the surf for the rest of his days, be so focused and doggedly determined to retrieve our local council back? What makes a man, who has travelled the world, who has been so instrumental in the development of Australian business and indeed other Chambers of Commerce, arrive in Noosa, stay in Noosa, support Noosa and now - what could be arguably be described as - saving Noosa for our future generations?
The Noosa Chamber of Commerce would urge you to come and hear Bob’s story in this remarkable journey. Please contact the Noosa Chamber of Commerce email@example.com or phone Carl Beck 0417 393 065 for details.
On behalf of Carl Beck.
