Offcanvas Section

You can publish whatever you want in the Offcanvas Section. It can be any module or particle.

By default, the available module positions are offcanvas-a and offcanvas-b but you can add as many module positions as you want from the Layout Manager.

You can also add the hidden-phone module class suffix to your modules so they do not appear in the Offcanvas Section when the site is loaded on a mobile device.

Vice President, Australia

After completing a Diploma in Business Studies, Damien carved a highly successful career in the insurance and financial services sectors where he held senior executive positions with a number of leading international organisations. His passion eventually led him to the opal industry where he and his brother Andrew (past president 2007-2009) are directors of a leading Australian opal exporting company which also operates retail opal stores and museums in Australia. These companies have won Government Export and Tourism Awards for excellence in these fields.

Together with his brother he co-authored the book ‘The Opal Story’ which has enjoyed a circulation of around 60,000 copies worldwide. Damien has served the gem and jewellery industry in a number of capacities including as International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA) Ambassador to Australia. He is currently serving as Vice President of ICA.
