The Gin Gin Business Breakfast was a great success featuring guest speakers Warren Davies, ‘The Unbreakable Farmer', and Brooke Fossey from Regional Business HQ.
An initiative of the Bundaberg Regional Council, the breakfast meeting series allows the region’s business community to network, collaborate and learn from experts across a range of industries.
The September business breakfast focused on building stronger communities to enable business resilience and aimed to equip attendees with practical strategies for sustainable success.
The Unbreakable Farmer Warren Davies said it was great to be invited to share his story with the community in Gin Gin.
“I’m here talking about resilience and mental health and the tools and strategies we need to have in place when looking after ourselves,” he said.
“I think it went really well and I got questions at the end along with a couple of laughs, so that’s always a really positive thing.
“I was invited because my story would resonate with the community here, there’s the rural aspect as well as the town aspect.”

Regional Business HQ General Manager Brooke Fossey was also a guest speaker and she shared her thoughts on business planning, marketing and tendering.
Brooke offered attendees practical advice on business resilience drawing on her wealth of experience leading her team to strengthen local industries and sustain regional employment.
Wide Bay Kids Business Development Officer Gayle Reynolds said she started attending the monthly business breakfasts four months ago.
“The Bundaberg business breakfasts hosted by Bundaberg Regional Council have given me the opportunity to meet new people in various sectors across the region,” she said.
“Attending the breakfasts have provided me with insights into what is happening in the region with the ability to stay connected to the local business community.
“Hosting a business breakfast in Gin Gin is a great way to showcase our regional neighbours, their facilities and connect businesses with each other and the community.”
