Welcome to Skål International Gold Coast

SKÅL International Gold Coast is 40 years young. We have a wealth of industry knowledge that has been gifted to us by the longevity of our core members, some of whom, are founding members 40 years ago. These tireless industry professionals are still on hand for all of us coming afterwards to draw out their enormous generosity in providing guidance and leadership.

Our core values include:  Creating innovation and inspiration in the Tourism and Hospitality Industry. We are about sharing experience and knowledge with each other. We call on everyone to be enthusiastic and passionate and to always be professional. 

Our Purpose Is to promote SKÅL International Gold Coast and Membership to our Club.  We want to ask questions and find out what you want out of SKAL International Gold Coast.  We acknowledge that we need to provide leading industry speakers that are relevant to our members. We are focused on finding out how we can deliver purpose to your membership and therefore we always ask and appreciate your feedback about how we can best support your tourism and hospitality business.  

My three personal quotes that I have based my life around are:
“If something is worth doing, it is worth doing well”
“You can’t do better until you know better”
“The more I give the more I receive”

In closing, I would like to acknowledge the blessing that I have received by having the opportunity to work with five of the most talented people in the Tourism and Hospitality Industry that I know. Therefore, I thank my Committee for coming on this journey with me. NIKE! "We are already victorious".
