Canberra Convention Bureau: Carol Scott Farewell

10 December 2014

The Canberra Convention Bureau sells Canberra. Not just smidgens but big hunks of what we have to offer as a destination for all manner of meetings, conventions and expos.  And as we know it’s just about perfect to live here, so recommending it as a destination has got to be the best job in town. Well it has been for one statuesque blonde, with a personality and smile of the alluring kind, tenacity and business acumen to boost our incoming stats who now after a decade with the bureau is upping stumps and making a change of some kind, even though she’s not absolutely sure of the finer details.

It’s Carol Scott I’m blathering on about and I reckon she’s a top Canberra executive who will find just the right niche in her pursuit of change that comes at the end of a year that has been personally demanding but consistently successful working at the bureau where two favourites, Robyn Hendry and Allan Williams, have supported her at the top end as have her family of colleagues at the business of the bureau end.

At the regular drinks gathering the bureau hosts at different venues during the year, the end of year one, with thankfully not a Santa in sight, was at a rain affected Federal Gold Club with new bloke on the block Cam Sullings showing he hasn’t lost his radio voice or ability to streeeeetch a story about the playing, partying and putting opportunities available at the club. But it was also a farewell to Carol from the many friends, colleagues and businesses she’s worked with over the years and helped spill the beans on the things that we once thought were Top Secret about this city but realized it would be advantageous to share with an ulterior motive in mind. And that’s what we can do for Carol; referees get in line!
