Event description

The highly anticipated 2023 South East Business Awards Gala Presentation Dinner promises to be an extravagant celebration that will delight the senses. Taking place at the exclusive Woodlands Golf Club, nestled within their manicured gardens, we will come together to recognise the achievements of our thriving business community.

*Exciting update: our guest speaker on leadership, business and resilience is Mark Williams leadership coach and mentor. Legendary AFL player and coach. 

The Senior Coaching position in the AFL is one of management, with the ability to multi-task being essential. Managing the dreams of 44 players, while working with aspiring assistant coaches, support and medical staff all in the glare of daily public scrutiny can be a daunting task. Time management and the ability to delegate and trust those around you to deliver is crucial.

Building close and trusting relationships with the Heads of Departments, the CEO and the board are vital to the teams’ success. Each and every person, and department, has their own special needs and showing the ability to recognise their talents and needs is the “Art of Management.” 

Mark has coached for over 25 years. Optimistic and innovative management, who set direction, delegate then assist and support autonomy, create a progressive happy workplace.  Individuals, who know exactly how he or she will be assessed, as well as their development pathway, strive to raise the bar and deliver the exceptional.

Marks experiences vary from being at “Ground Zero” of 3 AFL start up clubs seeing firsthand the difficulties and the joy of developing franchises, to then helping guide the youngest franchise to ultimate success - an AFL Flag.

Looking forward and searching for the next challenge is what drives him daily. A cancer survivor of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and losing his twin brother to a workplace accident, Mark also relays the story of his battles with his physical and mental health along his journey.

Join us on the heated terrace overlooking this prestigious golf course for pre-dinner drinks and mingling. We will then indulge in a delectable 2 course meal and and paired drinks menu masterfully crafted by Executive Chef Tony Collis.

The ambiance of sophistication and celebration will continue as our winners are revealed and and we witness their stories of triumph and challenge.
