In the first Game Changers for 2019, Cameron Costello, CEO of Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC) spoke about his ability as a leader to generate sustainable and capacity-building outcomes for the Aboriginal community while employing entrepreneurial skills to seek strong sustainable economic development.
Focussing on sustainable and culturally appropriate economic development, Cameron discussed how QYAC has gone from being passive observers of the gradual tourist influx on Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) to being major players in whale interpretation, eco-tourism, holiday accommodation, Traditional Owner ranger development, hospitality education, native bee honey products, world heritage listing and inclusion in Great Walks.
As with many successful CEOs, Cameron Costello continues to address the difficult ideal of achieving outstanding economic results while ensuring the welfare of the people he represents are considered and enhanced. At the heart of Cameron’s innovative approach to economic development is his sincere mission to steer each project in such a way that there is great benefit to the native title rights and interests of the Quandamooka People, who currently have native title over 54,000 hectares of land and sea on and around Minjerribah.
This event is part of the 2019 Game Changers series, facilitated by Ray Weekes, Chairman of The CEO Institute.
Game Changers is a Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame initiative presented by State Library of Queensland, QUT Business School and the Queensland Library Foundation.
