Breakfast of Business Champions
The theme of respect is the name of the game at the next Redcliffe High Business Breakfast, featuring special guest speaker Shane Webcke.

The event scheduled, for the morning of Thursday 8 August is hosted by Redcliffe State High School with support from the Redcliffe Peninsula Chamber of Commerce.

Attendees will enjoy a cooked breakfast provided by Redcliffe High School students, while listening to guest speaker, former professional rugby league footballer and Channel 7 reporter, Shane Webcke.

Chamber of Commerce president, Brad Flynn, said the breakfast was an opportunity for students to gain some real-world experience in hospitality and also to boost the profile of the ‘Respect Project’ – a program aimed at creating respect within the community.

“The principal and deputy principal started the respect project as a way to approach scenarios involving irate parents attending the front desk of the school,” Brad said.

The program has since grown, involving a number of primary and secondary schools and Sesame Lane Childcare and Kindergarten centres across the Redcliffe Peninsula region and surrounds.

Mr Flynn said the program had seen a reduction in displays of aggression, and had built stronger relationships not just within schools, but within the business community and society in general.

“It’s about making connections,” he said.

This topic will be expanded on by Shane Webcke, who will speak to the importance of respect in high-level sport and personal performance – the importance of being a good sport.

“That’s why we wanted to get a high-profile sportsperson involved, it’s just another layer in building a culture and community of respect,” Mr Flynn said.

Mr Flynn said he aimed to boost engagement with sports clubs with the support of The Redcliffe Chamber of Commerce. The chamber supports the event as part of an ongoing networking initiative, held at quarter-yearly intervals.
