At our August breakfast we heard from Terri Cooper the new Small Business Liaison Manager for the Brisbane City Council. This is a great initiative of the council for small business owners
Terri explained how her role has been created to help time poor small business owners to become aware of and connected to the numerous initiatives available from the Council to support businesses and to understand and access relevant support if and when required. The council now has a 24 hour business hotline 133 263 to discuss licencing issues, signage, procurement and planning and building issues. Terri will also sit down one on one with business owners to personally discuss the initiatives available.
We had 2 Businesses of the month - firstly Alexandria Mouasher from SocialMedia4U who specialises in social media solutions for small businesses interested in developing their online presence and expanding their client base.
Secondly Will Rademeyer and Darryl Dixon from Mortgage Box explained how they Offer You A Financial Solution Tailored To Your Needs, For Now And For Your Future. They offer both residential and commercial lending solutions.
Congratulations to the Morningside Development Association for another successful Morningside Festival on Sunday 30th July. It was great to see many of our members participating with stalls and well done to the MC David Farrell.
The SEBCC is a not for profit volunteer organisation and as such we have a committee which is elected each year. The Annual General Meeting will be held in September and we welcome all nominations for committee positions. If you would like to get involved please contact myself or other members of the committee.
We will be holding another Evening networking event on Thursday 24th August and it would be great to see as many people there to network in a more casual environment.
Have a great Month in Business
