A new collaborative partnership between Malaga Business & Districts Association and 12 Buckets has given local business and community leaders the opportunity to learn from seasoned West Coast Eagles CEO, Trevor Nisbett.
Eighty local business people gathered for breakfast on Wednesday, 20 April to learn more about the work of 12 Buckets in the community and to hear Mr Nisbett's insights on the pillars that secure strong businesses.
Stewart Blizard, from ROCG Accountants and Business Advisors, said, "The session with Trevor was brilliant: a great story from a club so many of us love".
Travis Fitch, CEO of 12 Buckets, relished the opportunity to share with local business owners and their staff the story behind 12 Buckets as well as invite them to invest locally by partnering with this ever-growing Perth children's charity. Along with this, Mr Fitch commented that he was also taking away some helpful learning from the West Coast Eagles' experiences as a club.
"I think, for me, what jumped out included the reminder that a successful organisation prioritises having the right people and then the right structure," Fitch said. "Furthermore, hearing from Trevor about the importance of not compromising the culture and values of your organisation, regardless of the talent and skills of individuals in your team, was absolutely on point."
There will be more business breakfasts in the near future, so stay tuned for the next opportunity to join the learning journey with 12 Buckets.
