BEN breaking news – Changes at National Convention Centre

Cindy Young passes the baton to Stephen Wood.

Last night in Canberra, Cindy Young National Convention Centre Canberra (NCCC) manager with 22 years of convention experience, announced her retirement.

Made at a ‘ncccpassthebaton’ function, held at the NCCC, it was both a farewell to Cindy and a welcome to the Centre’s new manager, Stephen Wood, a returning Canberran, who until more recently had spend 13 years with the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre.

The event, attended by Andrew Barr, Deputy Chief Minister of the Australian Capital Territory, industry leaders, clients, pco’s, suppliers, supporters and many friends and colleagues, was a fond cheerio to this woman much admired for the innovation and dedication she brought to her role at the Centre and in the wider community.

Young, who had held the position of manager since the re-opening and refurbishment of the Centre in 2007, said she was leaving with mixed emotions but was entering a new phase in her life.

“I am looking at filling my calendar with things I am interested in and passionate about.

“I tell people if they find me working next year, then I have stuffed up my budget!”

An avid traveller, she is currently training to walk the Camino de Santiago de Compostela or St Francis Way.

A bucket list ambition for many travellers, the five week trek, crosses Spain from east to west.

Stephen Wood, who holds an economic and law degree from the ANU, said having an affinity with Canberra makes the transition easier for him and his family.

“I think the important part of being successful in Canberra is understanding its advantages, understanding what you can leverage here and how you can access things so easily,” he said.
