Breakfast for champions

MANNY Papadoulis and Harold Clough will transfer their intimate knowledge of business success at a breakfast seminar next month.

As the first presentation of a five-part inaugural series, the two men will talk about the evolution of their high-profile businesses.

Mr Papadoulis is the chief executive officer of WA coach company Feature Tours, having taking over the helm from his father, Michael, in 1989.

Mr Papadoulis joined the company in 1984 after seeing potential for growth.

Feature Tours now turns over close to $7 million annually.

In recognition of his leadership abilities, Mr Papadoulis was awarded First Amongst Equals at this year’s 40under40 Awards.

Mr Clough also joined a family business, Clough Limited, and has taken the company to enormous success since joining in 1954.

Mr Clough served as managing director until 1988 and is currently the company’s chairman.

Clough started as a Perth building company in 1919 and is now a public operation with a share price of 92 cents.

Onshore and offshore oil and gas developments in the 1980s and 1990s led to the public listing in 1998.

Clough last week was awarded a turnkey contract worth $400 million on the BassGas project.

The company’s managing director, Brian Hewitt, said the project would be an important contributor to meeting Australia’s domestic energy needs and was a good win for Clough.

“The BassGas project is a landmark contract for Clough that will contribute strongly to our order book for the next two to three years,” Mr Hewitt said.

Mr Clough and Mr Papadoulis will talk about their careers, in-cluding their success and motivations, at the WA Business News Succession and Success breakfast on May 7 at Frasers Restaurant.
