Cairns Forum 4 Business Growth (F4BG) October 2018 Lunch

"How and when will we get to 300,000" 


Cairns Leader Kevin Byrne, who now heads Enterprise North explores the drivers required from an infrastructure and policy perspective as well as equally important issues such as effective community and political leadership complemented by robust visionary advocacy.
Kevin Byrne has enjoyed a successful forty year career across government, military, business and  corporate  appointments. He was Mayor of Cairns for eleven years during which time the city positioned itself for growth and development making it now the international gateway to Northern Australia and one of Australia’s most liveable cities.
Kevin is a passionate advocate for planned growth and development across Northern Australia and sees the need for governments to implement sustainable policies to grow regional communities. He is widely travelled, with extensive personal experience not only in Australia, but also in Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Malaysia and China. Throughout his career he has demonstrated leadership excellence in multi faceted and challenging appointments in the private and public sectors. He is a clear and concise thinker who is able to articulate complex positions with rare clarity.
An accomplished public speaker, he is best described as a competent all rounder who is well connected in the region. In addition to his civic and commercial management experience, he has enjoyed successful Board appointments across both the commercial and not for profit sectors and currently serves on the Board of Cootharinga NQ, a disability services provider. He is currently President of Enterprise North Inc, a regional development and advocacy organisation whose role is to advocate for population growth and development for Cairns City and North East Australia more broadly.
This will be a most insightful and valuable lunch presentation not to be missed!
