A good friend of mine, Kevin Gammie, who runs his own small coaching business. He had an idea to create a community where small businesses could help each other. So he built the Brisbane Small Business Facebook group which now has over 1100 members.
By popular demand, and as part of his vision, Kevin is hosting a small business expo right here in Brisbane.
It is on 16 and 17 October from 10am to 2pm. There is an opportunity to have your own stall for $164. We’ll be there with our own stall. Right now there aren’t many stalls left. I can honestly say that because we built the website and integrated the payment system, along with the limitations on numbers 😉
You can come along for free and check out all the stalls. If you feel like an upgrade and networking with other great businesses, there are some amazing speakers coming along to share with us advice, tips and information on marketing and PR.
Nick Bowditch will talk about connecting with people through Facebook and Twitter and many other ways. I’ve seen Nick speak before, and I can definitely vouch that he knows his stuff.
Robert Coorey is going to help you find hungry customers. He’s down to earth and gives practical strategies you can take away with you. He’s all about helping you grow your business.
Bec Derrington is a PR visionary. By looking at how she could connect people and their message to the markets (people) they wanted to talk to, she built a website that connected journalists with business owners and others who wanted to get their story out there.
Cat Matson is the chief digital officer for the City of Brisbane. She is responsible for driving economic development (that’s growing our businesses) and building digital capabilities across the start-up ecosystem and small business sector.
Tickets start from $67 up to $297. This is the link to find out more information http://brisbanesmallbusiness.com.au/event/brisbane-small-business-expo-2015/
