Just over 12 months ago Australia's leading demographer, KPMG Partner Bernard Salt, outlined his vision for the Gold Coast in 2050, at a TSS breakfast before one thousand guests.
Bernard spoke with passion and conviction about a bigger Gold Coast, a more diverse Gold Coast, a more knowledge-worker-focussed city.
His vision was warmly received by business, the community, the media and by government. Perhaps the Coast was always moving in this direction but there has been a sentiment shift on the Coast and about the Coast over the last 12 months.
Perhaps it is the approaching Commonwealth Games. Perhaps it is fatigue about the impact of the global financial crisis from eight years ago. Whatever the cause, the Gold Coast is again moving in the right direction. But this time around, let us make sure that all Gold Coasters are in agreement as to teh broad direction of the city in the future. This will be a place of lifestyle, a place of opportunity and a place of connectivity for generations to come.
Come along to a breakfast hosted by TSS in May to get an update on the 'Beyond the Horizon' Future Gold Coast project from its author Bernard Salt.
