Chairman at Rowland
Location: Brisbane

One night isn't a lot, but it can make a whole lot of difference

I have had the pleasure of participating in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout for eight years and I am also a member of the Vinnies CEO Sleepout advisory group. I thoroughly enjoy my involvement in the event, which allows business people to directly contribute to one of the most unfortunate blights in society via (a) raising money, and (b) raising awareness. Homelessness is a very real issue in the modern world, and it’s right in our backyard. The homeless are our brothers and sisters and it is our responsibility to do what we can to help – as I am sure others would do for each of us if we ended up in a similar situation. See, homelessness is incredibly diverse and cannot be stereotyped – it really can hit anyone at any point in time for a multiplicity of reasons. Through the Vinnies CEO Sleepout – and some other causes I am involved in – I have got to know several homeless men and women in and about Brisbane pretty well. I feel privileged to call these people my friends, and will continue to support them through events like the Vinnies CEO Sleepout wherever I can.
