After ten years at the helm of the Canberra Convention Bureau, Robyn Hendry is taking up the role of Chief Executive Officer at the newly formed Canberra Business Chamber.
Many CCB members gathered to farewell Robyn at a function last night at the Canberra Rex.
CCB Chairman Patrick McKenna reflected on how much Robyn has contributed to the Business Events sector in Canberra in that time. In particular he pointed out that the number of conferences held in Canberra had almost doubled over the previous decade, and that despite there being no increase in capacity at the National Convention Centre.
In thanking the chairman Robyn pointed out that this success was due to the hard work put in by her small but very efficient team at the Bureau.
Robyn will still be very much a part of Canberra’s Business Events community through her new role at the Business Chamber.
