Embrace change to excel in career

BEING a man standing in front of 140 women at a luncheon in Hervey Bay yesterday could have been daunting for Dwight Frew but that wasn’t the case.

The hairdresser from Alice Springs, who was in the Bay on a combined work and personal visit, took it in his stride.

“Most of my working career has been predominantly working with women so on this type of scale, en masse – about 140 women, is like talking to one,” Mr Frew said.

“The message doesn’t change, it’s only the delivery.”

His message at yesterday’s luncheon, hosted by the Hervey Bay Chamber of Commerce and Headlines Hair Studio, was that anyone who wanted to be at the forefront of his or her career or business had to embrace change.

“There are so many people out there in the business world with the equal amount of skills as you.”

What sets one business apart is its brand or image.
