Episode Notes

You know the saying; "come to me with a solution, not a problem".

You've probably heard it a million times and even had it thrown back at you from time to time.

Well, Darryl Branthwaite from Gladstone in Qlds Heartland has turned that notion into an artform. And, what's more, he is known for reeling in his whole community along the way. The fishing pun is intentional. But more on that a bit later. Darryl is the head of the GAPDL - Gladstone Area Promotion and Development Limited which is the lead promotional body for the region, located on the Queensland Coast at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef. It's a region Darryl, and his wife Jenny, love. He takes its success, its struggles and, most of all, its community, to heart and then sets out to do something about it.
