In the first Game Changers for 2019, Cameron Costello, CEO of Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC) takes to the stage to speak about his ability as a leader to generate sustainable and capacity-building outcomes for the Aboriginal community while employing entrepreneurial skills to seek strong enduring economic development.
Focussing on sustainable and culturally appropriate economic development, Cameron will discuss how QYAC has gone from being passive observers of the gradual tourist influx on Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) to being major players in whale interpretation, eco-tourism, holiday accommodation, Traditional Owner ranger development, hospitality education, native bee honey products, world heritage listing and inclusion in Great Walks.
As with many successful CEOs, Cameron Costello continues to address the difficult ideal of achieving outstanding economic results while ensuring the welfare of the people he represents are considered and enhanced. At the heart of Cameron’s innovative approach to economic development is his sincere mission to steer each project in such a way that there is great benefit to the native title rights and interests of the Quandamooka People, who currently have native title over 54,000 hectares of land and sea on and around Minjerribah.
This event is part of the Game Changers series, facilitated by Ray Weekes, Chairman of The CEO Institute. Game Changers brings innovation leaders from business, technology, and creative industries to share their insights with aspiring Queensland entrepreneurs.
Following the event, we invite you to network with Cameron and other business leaders on the stunning Queensland Terrace.
