We stand side-by-side with our members, sharing their passion, celebrating their successes and uniting against their challenges. Here, we share three stories of just four of the 400,000+ Queensland small business owners we represent.
Australian Events Marketing (member since 2000)
From humble beginnings in 1987 husband and wife Bob and Gai Carroll have built the Toowoomba-based business into one of the Nation’s largest event management companies.
Angelo's Pasta (member since 1994)
Donna left a successful career in corporate IT to take the reins of her family business, which her father Angelo started in 1968. CCIQ helps Donna keep Angelo's Pasta viable as she faces wage pressures, technology change and increased competition from multinational companies. "Being part of CCIQ gives me confidence that I can continue to grow our business into the future," Donna says.
Packer Leather (member since 1975)
Packer Leather is a fifth generation family business established in 1891. Back then there were dozens of tanneries in Brisbane but today they are the only tanner remaining. The firm has survived wars, the Depression, recessions, the rise of the plastics industry, foreign competition and offshore manufacturing to be a global leader in the production of performance leathers with a unique reputation for quality and innovation.
TheStoryBoxes (members since 2015)
David and Sarah started their own creative agency because they saw an opportunity for businesses to communicate more effectively through powerful stories. CCIQ has helped them meet new clients and show their amazing work to more audiences. "With CCIQ, we can meet people who share our passion for creating a legacy," Sarah says.
