Councillors' Bunya Mountains retreat was 'high-level stuff'

FRASER Coast councillors have labelled their team bonding exercise in the Bunya Mountains as highly successful.

All councillors with the exception of Stuart Taylor, Darren Everard and James Hansen attended the two-night retreat.

Mayor Chris Loft said councillors listened to speakers and learnt how to work with each other.

"It's about knowing yourself, how to work together and how you handle conflict," he said.

"It was a very worthwhile exercise."

Speakers included former Local Government Minister David Crisafulli, leadership mentor Graham Hill and former South Burnett Regional Council mayor Wayne Kratzmann,

Rolf Light echoed the mayor's comments about the success of the event.

"It was sensational personal development," he said.

"We discussed some visions we wanted to create and positive objectives - very high-level stuff.

"You get a group of people away out of their comfort zone and it opens up the ability to learn a little bit more.

"It was very cost effective."

The council will reveal the total cost of the trip when invoices are tallied next week.
