We were delighted to be invited to the Queensland Small Business Summit (SBS), to celebrate the conclusion of a very busy Small Business Week, 2018.
The Honourable Shannon Fentiman MP, Minister for Employment and Small Business and Minister for Training and Skills Development opened proceedings, drawing attention to the opportunities available for small business in Queensland.
We then heard from a diverse range of presenters and panellists including Stephen Scheeler, Senior Advisor, McKinsey & Company and former MD, Facebook Australia who spoke engagingly about the changing, disruptive landscape.
We also heard from Dominique Lamb, CEO, National Retail Association, Dr Pradeep Philip, Partner, Deloitte Access Economics, Tom Amos, CEO and Co-Founder, Sidekick.
One of our favourite speakers and one of the 100 Faces of Small Business, was Jen Geale from Mountain Bikes Direct. Having run both a “bricks n mortar” and online business simultaneously, she had some great insights on how to be successful in both.
All speakers confirmed that business transformation is the “new normal” as well as an ongoing, never-ending process. Exciting times.
