Executive Team & Ambassadors
My name is Jordan Barden and I am a residential sales consultant at Define Property Agents in Mooloolaba. I play a big role in helping educate the SCYCC through organising guest speakers every second month of the year to tell their story on where they started and how they have built a successful brand and/or business. This helps the group learn on how to build and run their business as these speakers have all started in a start-up or growth phase meaning those in the group can relate to their stories.
As the owner of Dash of Milk Agency, our team manages the SCYCC social media channels including updates on events, members and memberships. Understanding that a modern, young network will connect and communicate both online and offline, we have ensured to encourage and support this through a strong Facebook group and social presence across multiple channels. This also allows us to keep members and potential members updated on all chamber activities!
As a long-time local of the Sunshine Coast, I have been an active member in the Sunshine Coast community through many sporting teams, volunteering organisations and the Maroochy Chamber of Commerce. With work taking me to Brisbane in early 2015, then over to the UK in 2017, I have returned to the Sunshine Coast with a breath of fresh air and love assisting the region grow through small businesses. I take tremendous care – and great pride – in providing professional insurance and risk management advice to hundreds of small businesses across the region and further throughout Australia.
Having been part of the SCYCC since the beginning, I have seen the remarkable benefits this group brings to its members and the exciting leaps forward it has made in such a short number of years. This is why I took the opportunity to show my support for the group by providing graphic design services through my business Rise and Roar Design to build a strong SCYCC brand, a functional and informative website, event artwork and more. Being able to support the chamber in such a way allows me to give back to the SCYCC by helping to grow the group and continue to help make an impact on the Sunshine Coast.
My name is Jacob Corbett, and I am a Director & Lawyer of Bradley + Bray Lawyers. As an active young Lawyer on the Sunshine Coast, I have a keen interest in all things personal branding, self-development and education. The Sunshine Coast is my home, and I see real opportunity for young professionals to thrive in our incredible region if there are enough opportunities to do so. I was incredibly excited to become part of this fantastic Executive Team and utilise my passion for education, connection with the local professional community and flair for governance and policy to develop and grow the SCYCC going forward.
Yaama (hello), I'm Josie Tully - a proud Gomeroi Woman. I am an accountant with HeliMods. Having experienced first-hand the incredible opportunities that the SCYCC provides young professionals on the coast, I knew I needed to give back where I could. Through my knowledge of finances and my advisory background, I am able to assist the chamber in specific administration and finance tasks, and assist with decision making and planning. The young chamber aligns with my core values to always empower, educate and assist those I meet. The opportunities and connections that I have seen grow through the chamber in such a short time shows the incredible impact that is coming to the coast, and that I am so excited to be a part of!
Throughout my career, I’ve been fortunate to have had a number of exceptional mentors who shared their profound experiences and lessons learnt with me. These lessons have carried into how I conduct myself as a leader within my own team to this day.
For me, becoming an ambassador means I’m able to open the door for other young professionals who perhaps haven’t had the opportunity to lean on or learn from a mentor. I attribute much of my success to my ability to network, and so encourage others to prioritise connection in both their professional and personal lives. I’m always eager to help and provide guidance to others, so please don’t hesitate to reach out if inclined whether for business or personal development.
My mission is to improve people's lives through educating in the health and wealth space.
To improve health, I have spent the past 7 years as a personal trainer using simple methods to improve peoples behaviour, training and nutrition with the aim of creating long term changes.
To improve people's wealth I have completed a bachelor in Accounting/Financial Planning at USC and I'm currently studying Chartered Accounting whilst working at Yield Advisory, a firm that shares the same drive and passion as myself. I am pumped to be a part of the Sunshine Coast Young Chamber of Commerce as an ambassador and look forward to meeting many of the amazing people associated with the network!
My name is Rachel Last, and I am an Associate Lawyer at Travis Schultz & Partners, specialising in Personal Injury Law. I am also a passionate advocate for mental health and wellbeing awareness, always striving to reduce the stigma around mental illness. I didn’t grow up on the Sunshine Coast, but I have come to call it, and this community that I find myself part of, home.
I wanted to be an Ambassador for the SCYCC because I truly believe in what they have created: a space for young Sunshine Coast professionals to connect and support each other in a fun and educational way and make an impact in our professional community. I wanted to get involved behind the scenes to help grow the SCYCC in the years to come.
I’m Ryan Moes, the creative director of a local media company called Moes Media on the Sunshine Coast where I have been lucky enough to be born and bred. When I’m not behind the camera you can find me keeping active, surfing and exploring what the coast has to offer.
When I saw the opportunity to become an ambassador for the SCYCC, I jumped at the chance to be able to shoot content and network with likeminded people. I think it is a fantastic organisation to help young people across the Sunshine Coast grow, achieve goals and network.
