MEET THE SHARK FOR GOOD - BRUCE DJITE
Bruce Djite is a former international football (soccer) professional, having played for Adelaide United, the Socceroos, as well as clubs in Turkey, China, South Korea and Indonesia. This background allowed Bruce to develop strong relationships and networks across industry, sport, government, media, not-for-profits and community organisations.
This experience meant Bruce could leverage his influence to champion social impact and charitable causes, where he held ambassadorship roles for various charities focused on erasing racism and supporting seriously ill children and their families.
Bruce is now the SA Executive Director of the Property Council of Australia. He came into the role with a well-established profile, and reputation for passionate advocacy in South Australia, using his influence to raise funds and awareness of homelessness in Adelaide.
As former Chief Executive Officer for the Committee for Adelaide, Bruce has been an outspoken voice for economic growth and progress in South Australia, and has been unapologetic in rallying for greater ambition in South Australia when it comes to building social infrastructure.
10×10 is excited to bring Bruce’s passion to the Adelaide chapter event on 14 June, where he will ask the hard questions to three SA based charities on how they’re driving social impact throughout the State.
