The Big Cheese with Adagold General Manager-Commercial, Jeff Eager
By admin

The great thing about my job is…

Every day is so different, one day its finding a plane for Donald Trump, the next it is massive cargo into the highlands of PNG, the next could be finding a chopper for His Holiness Pope Benedict (when he was here for WYD anyhow)

The challenge for industry is…

Finding & training good young people that don’t just say YYYYYY

My greatest achievement is…

becoming Regional General Manager for Ansett in the Nation’s capital, at age 32 in Canberra leading a team of over 300

The biggest thing in MICE this year will be…

the Ozzie dollar

I try to relax by…

boating and fishing with mates

I don’t understand why……

we don’t focus more on China and India to tap into the known tsunami of growing middle class travelers, educating all Australians to be incredibly welcoming to rebuild our inbound tourism industry, creating jobs for our kids and grandkids for when the rocks & minerals run out!


Currently the album playing on my iPod is…

Black Eyed Peas

My favorite venue is…

Byron @ Byron

I am scared to death of…

accidents to my kids

I can’t live without…

Beer with the boys at the boat ramp on Friday nights and bacon and eggs brekky on Sunday morning on my back deck

Blackberry or iPhone…

Definitely iPhone 

I really wish I had…

my own G6 Jet 

If I could invite four people to a dinner party, they’d be…

only people I have met like the Dalai Lama, the Pope, the Queen, Elle McPherson (name dropper) and my mate Jason of course!
