The CQIB long lunch lives up to its name Council of Queensland Insurance Brokers (CQIB) members know how to do a long lunch, establishing their credentials as champion long-lunchers on February 26 when they descended on Brisbane’s Stanford Hotel and didn’t leave until late into the night. After the two-course lunch ended, the majority of the 150 guests went downstairs to the bar to continue their networking. And they had good reason to. Many had travelled from as far away as Rockhampton, Dalby, Townsville and the Gold Coast, so this wasn’t any ordinary occasion. The twice-yearly event attracted a capacity crowd. A highlight of the evening that followed included the rib-tickling words of comedian Fiona McGary, who acted as master of ceremonies and made fun of every person in the room, according to CQIB General Manager David Duncalfe. He says the formula of throwing people together in a room with no reserved seating, good food and great entertainment has once again proved to be the perfect recipe for successful networking.
