I can’t believe it’s been over a fortnight since we returned from Connect 2017.

A wonderful event, where despite arriving at 9am, I couldn’t get around to every booth. My only bug-bear of the day is that booth holders are well and truly packing up by 3pm.

That said, I walked the Connect17 halls meeting up with some old friends as well as new faces, spreading the important work of the SEQICC, FACCI and introducing our new Black Coffee initiative. Face-to-face relationship building is so important and in most cases, it takes years. Hopefully the investment will continue to pay off.

The biggest shout-out of the whole event was of course our very own Dennis Jose from Jabin Project Management winning Registered Supplier of the Year. He joins an alumni of talented and hardworking Queensland-based Supply Nation winners.

Here are a few images of #QueenslandersAtConnect2017.

Hope to see you next year. (And if I missed your booth for the #QueenslandersAtConnect17 post, then make sure you grab me for #QueenslandersAtConnect18!)

Cheers, Leesa Watego
President, SEQICC
