Today, I was invited by IBN Direct- Scott Roberts to breakfast with Glenn Copper from Coopers Brewing. I thought I was going to learn about my favourite wind down.. Beer. But, I was inspired by a Family owned business who cares about their brand and family values. The same as IBN Direct to its customers. Thanks Scott & Fiona.
I have utilised Scott’s services on a number of occasions, to assist with complex or unusual finance applications where I was not able to assist my clients. Scott was able to assist me on each occasion, and made the process simple and allowed me to keep my clients happy with their needs met as required. I have no hesitation in recommending Scott.
Great day thanks Scott, I always meet other like minded professionals to build referral relationships with and the entertainment, food & company tops it off for an awesome event. Thanks so much for the invite up and for continually running these gottogoto events!
Thanks to IBN for the invite to a yet another great event. Glenn Cooper provided some wonderful insights into the history, structure and challenges of Coopers Brewery since its humble beginnings 150 years ago. Thanks again and to Scott Roberts for hosting us at breakfast.
Thank you to Fiona for inviting me to the event on Wednesday night to listen to Sarina Russo, not only was the talk interesting but the people I met were great company and I learnt much.
Thanks so much to Fiona and IBN Direct for the invitation to the Sarina Russo Think Speakers event. It was great to be surrounded by so many wonderful local business people and hear the highs and lows of Sarina's journey.
Thank you IBN for inviting me to your latest evening to inspire with Sarina Russo. It was a fabulous night of positivity with inspiration, networking over great food and company. I received so much from it personally to take away and implement into my business and every day way of life. I can’t wait for the next event!
Loved the Event! Inspiring, uplifting ...a whole room jammed full of positive! Thanks so much for the invite IBN , stayed in a positive mindset for the whole week! Perfect for team building and personal empowerment. Have been privileged to see 3 amazing speakers and each has lifted the soul to greater heights. Many, many thanks.
It is really wonderful that IBN is getting behind ‘Think Speakers and Events’ and ‘Profile’ magazine. Lisa Wilkinson was an excellent speaker and it was a great privilege to have dinner with her. Thank you IBN for the opportunity.
As a guest of IBN at their recent Allan Pease speaking event, I was genuinely amazed at the global experience Allan shared with the room. Thank you to Scott and Fiona Roberts (and the whole IBN team) for the passion you share with the Sunshine Coast business community. Brilliant work!
The speakers were excellent and engaging, guided by a charismatic and knowledgeable MC. A unique opportunity to get up close and personal with such sporting legends. Thank you IBN Direct.
IBN always go that one step further to achieve an outcome. If at all possible, they achieve results for their clients. Communication channels are an extremely important part of this business, and IBN have an excellent system. Dealing with IBN is professional, at the same time keeping the personal touch as its focus.
Many thanks to Scott and the IBN team for the invitation to see Glenn Cooper speak at the breakfast event recently. He was a great story teller and gave me plenty to think about – very inspirational as well.
I found Allan Pease to be a highly entertaining and amusing speaker and one who gives an insight into peoples feelings and attitudes being expressed by their facial and body actions. I am looking forward to more excellent speakers in 2016.
We had just over a week to come up with some funds... and they did! The solution was in place and ready to settle a few days later.
I would have no hesitation is recommending IBN for future transactions that are difficult to place for your customers.
IBN provides a fantastic service and I would recommend them to anyone.
They are truly a team of hardworking, honest and ethical individuals that have a passion for what they do.
Thank you IBN for a great start to my day, breakfast with John Anderson, WOW!!! Every person in that room left in awe and touched by a Man driven by an idea. I see things differently now.
IBN is our introducer of choice and I would encourage brokers to join IBN’s network
Nothing is too much trouble for the team at IBN and the services that they offer to both the client and the funder are second to none.

After being involved within the finance industry for more than 15 years I have pretty much heard every promise, excuse or guarantee possible. After meeting IBN mid-2013, I have been provided with positive outcomes that reflect their initial promise. Rarely do I ever meet a company that not only promotes satisfaction but actually follows through on it. They are truly a team of hardworking, honest and ethical individuals that have a passion for what they do. There is no reason that Foundation capital will not continue to use their services into the future.
Operating as a Financial Counsellor I encounter many difficult financial situations. Recently I had a client with a complex arrangement that none of the major Banks were willing to help with. I had IBN’s number sitting in my draw for a few months and thought I would see if they could help me find a solution for my client. It took a little while to find the right answer to a complex problem that would work for my client and I, but the staff at IBN were fantastic and never gave up on finding me a suitable Lender within the timeframe I had. When the settlement was completed and we could breathe again my client and I were ever so thankful for the support and professionalism IBN gave us. IBN provides a fantastic service and I would recommend them to anyone.
Thanks to IBN for the invite to the Glenn Cooper breakfast last Friday, it was great to catch up to Scott Roberts again as well as the other professionals at the table, was a great networking opportunity thanks. Loved Glenn Coopers philosophy on business and how the family has kept the business close and in house for all this time, a great insight into a great Australian business and very entertaining at the same time.
Scott, thank you for inviting me along to your most recent business breakfast, it was a privilege to hear from the founder of Contiki - John Anderson. His story – ‘Only Two Seats Left’ on how he started the business in the early 60s with a vision, luck and focus was a great lesson for us in business. I must say that John as a speaker was one of the best I have heard in quite a while. The way he connected with the audience and displayed his genuine passion for his former business Contiki was infectious and the ideal way to start a day. The other guests on your table were excellent company and some mutual business connections were made which made for a terrific event. Thank you so much for the opportunity to not only meet with you, your colleagues and invited guests but to share in the experience of the morning.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the team from Think Speakers & Events for once again bringing speakers with a global following to the coast. How wonderful that the event was sold out, with 272 lucky attendee’s of which I was one, to witness the phenomenon that is Allan Pease. Allan’s insightful and humorous tales, mixed with big data and psychology behind why people do what they do, was perfectly timed. With our team getting ready for an even bigger 2016, it was important to take on board Allan’s advice and focus on the WHAT, and let the how appear! I highly recommend attending a Think Speakers & Events breakfast, lunch or special event. I’ve been able to take my business onto more success this year with the pearls of wisdom that are shared and grow my network at the same time."
Thank you for invite to the event this morning, John Anderson is one the most insightful and inspirational speakers I have heard in a long time. There was so much great content which can be applied to our business. I also found that the event was a great chance to network and share ideas with like-minded individuals.
Thanks so much for the invite to the breakfast last Friday to see John Anderson speak about Contiki. It was one of the most inspiring and heartfelt accounts I have ever heard of one man’s journey through his business life. He encapsulated lessons in business, such as risk management, marketability, expansion, innovation and leap of faith, and included the irony and humour along the way. His passion was infectious and is no doubt the reason I had dinner with our whole family that night and told them all about it. Thanks so much.
I would like to thank IBN and yourself personally for the invitation to John Anderson Event Breakfast at Maroochydore RSL this morning. It was the best guest speaker event I have had the privilege of attending in many years. He was a very passionate and entertaining speaker, and he delivered a strong moral message with honesty and integrity. A true man among men.
I just want to thank the team at IBN. I had an issue with a client who he was on the verge of losing his house. He was knocked back by his own bank and out of options. I got in touch with the team at IBN Direct and like clockwork it was done. We had just over a week to come up with some funds…. and they did! The solution was in place and ready to settle a few days later. Thanks, the client is relieved and happy.
I recently used Mr Scott Roberts of IBN to assist me with a very complex and unusual finance application which involved a high degree of skill, negotiation and professionalism. Without Scott I would not have been able to complete this particular transaction and in turn provide a suitable outcome for the customer. I would have no hesitation is recommending Scott for future transactions that are difficult to place for your customers.
Thank you again for the invite to the Mathew Hayden lunch, what a great afternoon spent listening to the story behind one of Australian crickets greatest opening bats, he was very entertaining, informative and at times inspirational the way he overcame adversity during his career. His stories about touring and some of the antics they got up to as well as the serious side of dealing with pressure and politics were very enlightening. Wonderful afternoon spent listening to a legend.
Just a short note to thank-you for the wonderful event featuring Matthew Hayden last week. My husband and I were delighted to be a part of the event and I must say we have been to quite a few of these types of events, but this was the most enjoyable of all. Matthew was accessible, authentic and completely entertaining. It is with much pleasure I recommend attending a Think Speakers Event. A great environment to network, learn and nourish your business.
Our team here have had the pleasure of working with Scott and Fiona Roberts along with their team at IBN for the past couple of years. We have found everyone involved with IBN to be very efficient, organised and professional with all the dealings that we have had with them. Nothing is too much trouble for the team at IBN and the services that they offer to both the client and the funder are second to none. We look forward relationship with the IBN team well into the future.
To Scott and Fiona and the IBN Team, Just wanted to again forward through my thanks for the invite to the Breakfast with Glenn Cooper last week, it truly was a chance to “Get Up and Get Motivated”. Glenn’s story about the battle to not only keep the brewery Australian owned, but family owned was both refreshing and inspiring. The values that they showed throughout that process could and should fit well into any business around the world. And then the lunch, crossing to the dark side…. So thanks again for the invite, another great event.
