Easily recognisable as one of the Bowen Basin’s industry thought leaders, Jodie is the Director and founder of the Bowen Basin Mining Club (BBMC), as well as a co-founder of Strategic Mining Communications, a consultancy business working with mining industry leaders.
Jodie started the BBMC in 2010 after seeing a need for mining industry suppliers to work together through all stages of the industry’s cycle. By bringing high-profile speakers to regular regional networking events, Jodie has facilitated countless business partnerships and helped to strengthen businesses across the Bowen Basin.
In addition to connecting businesses through networking, Jodie has established the BBMC Yearbook, an annual thought leadership publication, as well as recognising the industry’s achievers through the Queensland Mining Awards. In 2020, Jodie launched the BBMC’s newest extension, The Crib Room podcast.
