Member Testimonials

Lucas Dow, Chief Executive Officer - Adani Mining

“Townsville Enterprise has been invaluable in rallying support for the mining sector across Northern Queensland. Through their effective advocacy activities that demonstrated the economic contribution the region’s resources sector makes to the national and state economy, Townsville Enterprise was instrumental in securing the significant investment and jobs for North Queensland that the Carmichael Mine represents.”

 Angus Campbell, Director - Riverside Marine

“The Australian Tourism Exchange (ATE) has been crucial for international trade at Magnetic Island Ferries. The ability to meet with international agents on a face to face basis is immeasurable in creating and sustaining beneficial relationships. The experience was an asset to our Sales & Marketing team and has helped expand our avenues in the industry. Townsville Enterprise supported our team and company with pre, during and post advice and assistance to best ready ourselves for the international market.”

Lisa Sampson - Big Mama Sailing (Magnetic Island)

“The Flood Recovery Marketing Campaign implemented by Townsville Enterprise gave the region national exposure at a time when we needed it most! Off the back of this campaign Magnetic Island had an extremely strong tourism season. Our business continues to grow and we are thankful to have the support of Townsville Enterprise. The team continue to provide us ample marketing and PR opportunities which we could never achieve on our own.”

Fiona Lidgett, Owner - Bush Oasis Caravan Park

“As a member of the flood recovery program I expanded my networks with local businesses, developed future opportunities for growth, and received advice and insights from Southern Cross Austereo and PVW. Creating those networks has been supported by Townsville Enterprise, with media coverage on insurance challenges and the opportunity to speak on behalf of Townsville Caravan Parks to the Tourism Board in relation to Townsville RV Tourism. The mentoring with Chris Briggs from SeaLink has been a highlight, providing valuable guidance and input on the business direction.”

Clinton Huff, Operations Manager - Shamrock Civil

“We have received valuable benefits as a Townsville Enterprise member including the opportunity to interact with a range of potential clients as a participant in the Surbana Jurong delegation and the Defence Industry Working Group. Here, Shamrock Civil provided direct input into economic development strategies that impact us as a contractor and the broader economy.”

Mitch James, CEO - Paradise Outdoor Advertising

“Townsville Enterprise has been the driving force behind Townsville North Queensland’s push for the opening of the Galilee Basin. They have advocated at all levels of Government, and Townsville’s voice has been heard and listened to. Townsville’s ability to lobby as a cohesive force is due to the catalyst that is Townsville Enterprise. It’s for these reasons Paradise Outdoor Advertising proudly maintains a Platinum Membership with Townsville Enterprise.”

Steph Hinks, Owner/Operator - Aquascene Magnetic Island

“This year was our busiest on record, with Townsville Enterprise’s marketing activities positively impacting our business and several Magnetic Island operators. Passenger numbers grew by over 20% increasing revenue by more than 30%. A portion of this growth is a direct result of Townsville Enterprise’s marketing initiatives.”

Troy Scott, General Manager - Grand Hotel and Apartments

“The Townsville Enterprise Digital Transformation Program was one of the most valuable, important and informative programs that the Grand Hotel and Apartments has participated in. We have already begun implementing several changes and we are putting a much bigger emphasis on improving our digital assets to enhance the customer experience.”

Leigh Cunningham, CEO, Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia – Queensland

“Support from the Townsville Enterprise Convention Bureau and the Townsville North Queensland Bid Fund offered an opportunity to deliver our annual conference in Townsville. Previous regional conferences have attracted smaller delegations; however, we were very pleased that our Townsville conference achieved a record 369 delegates and was considered highly successful by those in attendance.”

Carla Adams - Apollo Motorhomes Marketing

“Apollo Motorhomes partnered with Townsville Enterprise on the ‘Ultimate Guide to Driving the Great Barrier Reef’ campaign. After reviewing the influencer engagement and following, this was certainly the most successful Instagram campaign Apollo has supported. Thank you for letting Apollo be part of the journey.”

Patrick Brady, Executive Director - Premise

“Townsville Enterprise has provided Premise multiple platforms to explore potential business opportunities, particularly with Singapore. The connections established as a part of the Singapore Delegation are invaluable to enable these opportunities to be furthered and assist in growing North Queensland’s economic development potential.”

Carl Valentine, Director - PVW Partners

“Townsville Enterprise is to be commended on its comprehensive communications and targeted events which benefit members like PVW Partners but also the North Queensland community more broadly. By working together and beating the collective drum, we can ensure the opportunities for our region are realised.”

Natalene Carter, Director - RID Australia

“To be placed directly in front of the Surbana Jurong delegation was invaluable. The most challenging component of engaging with offshore customers is making contact with decision makers and connectors. Townsville Enterprise has assisted Townsville based businesses to operate in a forum that would usually be out of reach.”

Chris Briggs, General Manager - SeaLink Queensland

“The Townsville Enterprise Tourism Volunteers provide world-class customer service to visitors day in, day out. With their smiling faces, welcoming personalities and a passion for our region, they are our best ambassadors.”
