CMAA – Meet Our Members

Meet Bronwyn Newman, Associate Dip. Business,  Gaming and Marketing Manager at Dapto Leagues Club.


1) What is your biggest  or has been your  biggest challenge with the club/ area?

My biggest career challenge has just been believing I can do it!

2) What have been some of your achievements or highlights since being at the club?

I’m really proud of the progression in roles I’ve achieved – starting as a Functions manager, moving into marketing and now an Executive Manager – Gaming & Marketing Manager.

The Grange renovations is without a doubt my biggest achievement to date. $5M renovation – the building was gutted and re-built. It is everything that I believe a venue should be and should deliver. This will continue to grow and development further over the next 12 mths by our team, until all strategies are implemented

Recommending to the board that the $80K they just spent on the golf course master plan redesign was not going to meet the future demands of the market and game of golf.  Resulting in the Board and CEO approving my recommendation and allowing me to be instrumental in a refocus and finding an architect that could deliver the right plan to fit our strategy, eventually ensuring the longevity of the grange for generations to come.

3) Is there a piece of advice or something compelling you have learnt that you can pass on to our readers and up and coming managers?

If you think you can’t do it, just give it a try, your determination, passion and leadership will only flourish with the opportunity.

4) Outside of the club and your role there. Do you have any hobbies or passions.. tell us a bit about you?

I love food and wine, my family, friends and husband and little boy Zac (dogy).  They are my hobbies, my passion and my life.  :-)
