Managing Director of Accountable List Brokers (ALB), President of Southport Chamber of Commerce and Founder of Prevent Youth Suicide.
Laird established ALB, a National Mailing List Company, over 29 years ago and since that time, has been associated with many Not For Profit Businesses in Honorary Roles, previously Chair of the Aust. Direct Marketing Association QLD, Board member of the Fundraising Assoc. QLD and President of the Milton Chamber of Commerce.
As a previous Adjunct Fellow at Bond University lecturing in Direct Marketing, Laird understands the importance of making the Gold Coast a Hub for Education and Health, apart from existing Tourism and Construction.
A regular member for 8 years prior, Laird accepted the Position of President and with many new Board Members, made changes to reverse the losses and return the Chamber to a profitable, Key Influencer in the Business Community. Establishing a stand-alone office and attracting 14 Key Board members has allowed the Chamber to be instrumental in establishing Southport as the CBD.
Now as the President for 6 years, Laird has always worked with all sides of the Political Spectrum to bring about positive change and ensure the Bureaucrats that make decisions that affect us are aware of the Impact on Businesses and Residents alike.
