Regional Growth Summit: How to get your business to stand out

Wednesday 2nd September 2020, 8:45am - 6:00pm

If you are a passionate and purpose-driven business owner who wants their business to stand out then the Regional Growth Summit is for you. 

This one-day event brings together business leaders from across regional, rural and outer metro communities to share stories of inspiration combined with practical actions that you can implement immediately to help your business grow.

This one-day virtual summit is based on our 'Teach, not tell' philosophy, where you can hear from other businesses who have used strategic thinking, technology and marketing as an enabler to create positive change in their business. 

Join and meet fellow regional and rural business owners in these interactive sessions with networking opportunities.  Participate in a marketing Masterclass or Workshop, or simply be inspired by stories of regional and rural Australian businesses. (See the full agenda below)

We recognise that many business owners have limited time, money and resources to work on their business, so this event is focused on creating change using simple steps and providing the inspiration and support that is traditionally hard to access in Regional areas. 

Based on the current challenges across the country, there are many opportunities to listen to online events that provide theoretical ways to help build a healthy and sustainable business. However, the greatest impact comes from not simply being told, but getting practical help with real-life explanations and examples that can be applied to your business and your business situation.

Introducing & Showcasing

You will hear from both educators and regional business leaders about how you can use marketing, customer experience and technology to build a healthy and sustainable business. This event is for you whether you are a startup, scale-up or small to medium businesses in Regional Australia.

  • What human-centred marketing is and how it will help your business connect with customers

  • Marketing strategies to help your business stand out

  • The importance of understanding and adapting to customer insights

  • Customer and buyer behaviour

  • How technology can make your life easier

  • Practical steps to applying learnings
