A word from one of our partners

Daniel Gschwind

“It all comes down to the values – sometimes unspoken values – that you share. These are the most important building blocks that a relationship like this has to start from.

“You can’t always form these things through contracts and MOUs but if you share implicitly and explicitly a set of values then you will have a good partnership and obviously, that is certainly the case with UQ.”

- Daniel Gschwind, CEO, Queensland Tourism Industry Corporation, on QTIC's partnerships with UQ
