It was a real pleasure to welcome the new CCC CEO Dawn Baxendale, to her first public speaking engagement. Dawn summarised her life and what gives her stability, her family, and what has formed her as a person. It was refreshing to listen to a CEO with massive background in Local Government and driven by values. She will bring discipline and strength to the CEO’s role and with the new Council and Community Boards having such potential I think we will be in a much better place in this City.

I suspect we will see a lot of Dawn at the Tuesday Club as we address issues over the next few years. Here’s a photo of her in her last job with members of her community (I might pay for this comment, but she’s the short one…):
