A collection of ICT executives have offered to sport a bold new look to support the first-ever World's Greatest Shave technology industry challenge.
The event is being held on March 27 in the forecourt of the Mincom Central building in Brisbane.
Organisers hope to raise about $30,000 for the Leukaemia Foundation. Amongst the cavalry are Mincom CEO, Richard Mathews, IBM QLD general manager, Ian McClenghan, Microsoft state director, Craig Foster, Isoft state co-ordinator, Mark Brommeyer, Telstra QLD state director, David Usher, Data#3 general manager, Laurence Baynham, and Vodafone general manager, Cameron Levick.
Attending on the day to show some support will be the minister for State Development, Employment and Industrial Relations, John Mickel.
"As a charity, we are largely dependent on the fundraising efforts of individuals and organisations," Leukaemia Foundation QLD CEO, Peter Johnstone, said.
The funds will assist with key initiatives, including the development of a new Clem Jones Sunland Leukaemia Foundation Village facility in Brisbane.
