Mandela's Bodyguard to talk at Business Lunch
Sunshine Coast business people will hear what it takes to be a better leader when they attend Royal Blind Foundation Queensland's Line of Sight Lunch in Mooloolaba on Thursday October 5.
Nelson Mandela's former bodyguard and former Los Angles FBI SWAT team member Rob Redenbach will show how everyday high-risk environments can bring into focus the vulnerable areas of any organisation.
Line of Sight is a brand new corporate luncheon series designed to meet three key objectives: to make corporate Queensland aware of how they can assist Royal Blind Foundation Queensland; to encourage businesses to use the event to invite potential clients who are in their business development 'line of sight'; and to uplift and inspire with a professional speaker designed to achieve results.
Redenbach's presentation blends hard facts, personal experience and a healthy measure of good humour, to cut to the bone of what it takes to be a better leader.
Problems and faults in high-risk environments are made starkly apparent. "Success can be judged more on life and death than profit and loss," Redenbach says.
Royal Blind Foundation Queensland Fundraising and Marketing Manager Alan Tayt says this year the team has launched the series of Line of Sight lunches to build and grow upon the valued relationships shared with corporate partners.
"These lunches aim to give guests the added bonus of fostering their own corporate social responsibility goals.
"We want business to come with an open mind about supporting RBF Queensland and hear about what we're doing for the community and why our work is so important.
"But just as importantly we want them to use the event to squarely target prospects in their own 'line of sight' in terms of potential clients or business partners."
Mr Tayt believes organisations that rely on grants and donations in order to continue their valued work need to embrace new ways of strengthening relationships with the community as well as with corporate partners.
"The lunches are about growing awareness as well as getting our presence and intentions in front of potential corporate partners and sponsors", Mr Tayt said.
The Sunshine Coast Line of Sight lunch will be held at Level 4 on the 4th floor at 77 The Esplanade Mooloolaba on Thursday October 5th at 12.00 for 12.30pm.
Tickets cost $65 per person or $600 for a table of 10 and include a two course meal and beer, wine and softs.
Guests can book by calling Lynda or Georgia (07) 3391 9191 or 1800 622 954 (from regional areas). Or go to the secure RBF online booking service at: www.rbf.org.au/lineofsight
Royal Blind Foundation Queensland is the State's premier agency providing independent living support to people who are blind or vision impaired. More than 5,000 individuals benefit each year from the work of RBF Queensland and the demand for services for people with low vision is increasing at an annual rate of 30 per cent. More than 60,000 Queenslanders suffer some form of vision impairment or blindness and this number is expected double within the next 15 years.
