"I love working alongside the client because they always have this big crazy dream that they want to deliver and it’s my job to make sure they get there, safely. We get a lot of satisfaction out of making a dream a reality. Clients come to us because we have the answers."
There's no such thing here as a typical day. The second you walk into the door, something gets thrown that you never thought you would have seen. I'm John Sharp. I'm a Senior Safety Advisor here at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre. Safety is important at the Convention Center because you've got so many moving parts. There's a lot of things that happen behind the scenes that people don't get to see. My role here is very hands-on. We want to have a positive culture. We want to educate our team members. We want to let them be the leaders and then take ownership over the safety space. I love working alongside the client because they've always got this crazy big dream that they want to deliver. And it's my job to make sure that they can get there safely. Clients now want to come to us because we've got the answers. We're like a tool in the belt. I love working at the Convention Center because of the people. Everyone's got the same goal in mind and we just all want to get the job done safely.
