MILDURA’S SMALL BUSINESS FESTIVAL READY TO IGNITE IDEAS
For the last four years, the Small Business Festival, hosted by Mildura Regional Development (MRD), has been offering the region an impressive line-up of events, workshops and guest speakers and with this year’s festival about to kick off, it’s clear nothing has changed.
Chief Executive Officer of MRD, Mr. Daryl Buckingham, said today that the 2018 Festival will provide businesses and the broader community, with access to quality training, information and networking opportunities, along with the chance to hear from people leading the way in their chosen professions.
Events will run throughout August, beginning with #WomenEmpoweringWomen on August 2nd, at the Mildura Arts Centre and culminating with a presentation by Stu Atkins, an expert on digital trends and marketing, on August 29.
“Stu will challenge his audience to think outside the square and better prepare them for the disruption that comes with evolving technology. It’s a must-see event for anyone looking to build their business,” Mr. Buckingham said.
“Continuing on this theme, other events will cover topics including the opportunities and challenges of exporting and the benefits of advisory boards for business growth. This Festival is all about supporting Mildura’s business community to connect with each other and with the ideas and influencers that are impacting the future of business locally, nationally and globally.”
Mr. Buckingham noted that there’s an increasing demand for events such as this in the region and he’s pleased that so many organisations are on board and supporting the Festival.
“We have seen over the last few years, that the Mildura region is hungry for festivals, that link our community with presentations that they would once have had to go to a capital city to see. I encourage people to check out the schedule of events and make the festival part of their August,” Mr. Buckingham said.
The MRD Mildura Small Business Festival is supported by Business Victoria and sponsors ANZ, Sunraysia Daily, Southern Cross Austereo, La Trobe University, Quest, SproutX, SuniTAFE and Jamesprint.
