MEDIA RELEASE - Olympic Heavyweight Rod McGeoch to help Macarthur Honour Local Entrepreneurs


15 August 2008

Mr Rod McGeoch will be the special guest speaker at the 2008 Macarthur Business Hall of Fame.

Perhaps best known as the leader of Sydney’s successful Olympics 2000 bid, Mr McGeoch is a Chairman or Director of a wide range of companies and a past Chairman Emeritus of Corrs Chambers Westgarth, one of Australia’s largest legal firms.  Mr McGeogh has had and continues to enjoy a remarkable career at the forefront of business, sports administration and the legal profession.  He unites exemplary senior level management experience with an unparalleled commitment to achievement and is an accomplished and entertaining public speaker. 

“This year MACROC is honoured to have Mr McGeoch join us as we acknowledge three business leaders who have contributed to the wealth of the Macarthur community,” says MACROC President Cr Rob Elliott.

The Macarthur Business Hall of Fame was established in 2006 by the Macarthur Regional Organisation of Councils (MACROC) to honour and recognise members of the business community who have made an outstanding contribution to the Region.

MACROC President, Councillor Rob Elliott explains, “In creating the Macarthur Business Hall of Fame, MACROC wanted to publicly acknowledge the significant contribution that certain individuals make to the success of this Region.  These individuals recognise that business success is more than just about making a profit it is about actively supporting the area in which you conduct your business.  It is about developing a strong sense of commitment to place and community.”

This prestigious event is being held on the evening of Thursday 28 August at Macarthur’s newest convention and entertainment venue, The Cube.

Numbers are limited for this Gala Event, so book early.  Tickets are $99pp (incl gst) and can be purchased from MACROC on 4645 4937
