Sunshine Coast Coraggio Group

Are you a Coraggian?

You are invited to be a part of Coraggio’s inaugural Sunshine Coast Advisory Board.

This is a unique opportunity to take your place at the table with similarly successful peers seeking to take their business from good to great. It can be lonely at the top, yet critical to both your personal and your company’s success to seek out fearless, objective advice and the support of impartial but committed minds. This is Coraggio. A community where you will experience a deep sense of camaraderie, a wealth of collective wisdom, sharp insight and a structure that serves one key goal, to advance your business to greatness whilst developing you as a leader.

Business leaders who find their way to Coraggio seek a dynamic support and advisory network built around generating personal and business growth and a community that delivers greater than the sum of its parts.

Selective Membership is now available for this new Coraggio Advisory Board (CAB) commencing on the Sunshine Coast and chaired by Steve Rust, an experienced senior executive and board director.

Steve’s passion for exemplary leadership was forged in top leadership roles in global brands – MD Panasonic Australia, MD at Ingram Micro Australia (the world’s largest IT distributor), Vice President at Nortel Networks Australia/NZ and GM at Apple Computer Australia/NZ.

In an earlier assignment Steve contributed to the development of an SME business in the early days of the PC industry and working alongside the founders grew the business from a staff of 10 to over 400 with branches in every state. Steve moved from its Melbourne base to Sydney to develop the NSW & Qld business. In 1991, the NSW dealership won the industry’s top award for achievement from the then leading PC vendor.

With a keen interest in governance and its role in balancing entrepreneurial opportunity and risk has led to non-executive board appointments and it is his enthusiasm for leadership and its potent impact on people and organisations that has brought Steve to Corragio where courage and leadership are at the forefront.


Coraggio Chairs have navigated decades of corporate experiences including failure and struggle. A professional chairperson provides the discipline and focus to help members learn new business styles and approaches from each other in a meaningful and immediately useful way. It’s a challenging role to facilitate a group of business leaders seeking support to grow their business and be the best they can be.


Meeting monthly, the CAB journeys Members towards business excellence and personal enrichment through peer-to-peer mentoring, sharing and learning. CABs are leadership in action, where members challenge themselves and are challenged by others in a safe environment. Friendly yet robust discussion drives momentum and positive peer pressure holds members accountable to their own decisions. The resultant Coraggio spirit runs deep is expressed by what members both possess and provide:

  • Readiness and willingness for challenge
  • Accountability
  • Courage
  • Decisiveness
  • Mutual exchange
  • Support
