Recommendation from Former President of
Business SWAP

I met Joan Small through the Business Swap International organisation and had quite some involvement with the Gold Coast club while Joan was a member there from about 2001 - 2005.

Joan was a very active and enthusiastic member in the club and in 2003 was Club President participating at Club, State and National levels and steering the club to win National Club of the Year and becoming National President of the Year. 

During Joan’s year as President of Gold Coast Business Swap club growth was substantial as was its activity in the local business community.  Personal and professional growth workshops were conducted as well as two huge and very successful promotional events featuring high profile guest speakers Sarina Russo and Grant Kenny
