Getting down to business
THE Tweed Economic Development Corporation wants to help businesses grow, which is why it is again sponsoring a travelling business roadshow coming to the Tweed next month.
The North Coast Business Road show kicks off in Coffs Harbour before travelling to Yamba, Ballina, and Byron Bay before coming to the Tweed on September 15 and finishing up in Lismore later in the month.
Sponsoring the roadshow, which brings together information, resources, programs and agencies which can help owners boost their business is a priority for the TEDC, according to business development manager Tracy Armstrong said.
“The TEDC sees this event as an excellent opportunity for small to medium-sized business owners to increase their skill base and expand their understanding by speaking to experts in visiting the travelling roadshow,” said Ms Armstrong.
“The TEDC has been a sup- porter and sponsor of the North Coast Business Road Show over the past couple of years,”
“We value the opportunity the roadshow presents in also networking with other businesses as well as receiving advice on opportunities from various stakeholders in the business community.”
The TEDC sponsorship has helped pay the appearance fee of Sonja Bernhardt, the first Australian to be inducted into the Hall of Fame for Women in Technology International, who will inspire business owners as the key note speaker at the road show.
“We are very excited to be able to bring a speaker of this calibre to the North Coast,” said road show co-ordinator Kym Kranen.
The founder of the Women in Technology in Australia group, Ms Bernhardt, will give a humorous overview of the program Web 2.0 and how it can improve the bottom line of a business.
Entry to the event to be held at the Cudgen Leagues Club from 8.30 to 10.30am is free. For information visit www.businessroadshow.info
