We deliver value by…

Meet the Directors

Tony Sharp
Inaugural Chair

My passion lies in creating sustainable social enterprises that create opportunities to people to participate in a supportive work environment as they develop the skills and behaviours they need to work in mainstream workplaces.

As founder of Substation33 it gives me great pleasure to see our operations growing and blossoming on many fronts. Substation33 was just a start-up 8 years ago with the main drive to provide meaningful work and skills development to volunteers and employees, generate social returns for YFS and the Logan community, divert electronic waste from landfill and change the conversations about these important topics in the broader community. In recent years my focus has expanded; encompassing a much broader range of people; and to further develop the ‘Start-up Innovation’ culture in Logan and beyond.

Most recently I have accepted an additional role as Social Entrepreneur in Residence at Griffith Universities Yunus Centre, and as a foundation spokesperson of INNOV8 – Logan. As the 2019 Social Traders – Social Enterprise Champion of the Year it gives me great pleasure to also be Social Enterprise Ambassador for the Australian 2021 SEWF bid.
