May is Small Business Month and I was delighted to attend the launch last week on behalf of the Chamber. It’s a time to turn the spotlight on the hard-working small business entrepreneurs and their stories of the good times and the bad. There’s a lot of benefit in sharing the realities and the lessons learnt. Get in contact with us if you would like to talk publicly about your business journey.

I hope to see you this Thursday night at our Going Global After Hours Networking event in conjunction with Cheryl Ryan at 123Travel in Burnett St, Buderim.  Add to the fun of the evening by wearing something that connects you with somewhere overseas.  We know we can’t travel overseas at the moment but we can still think about what’s happening around the world and how we connect globally.

I’m also keen to see 4556 Chamber members at the celebration of Small Business Month breakfast on May 20 that doubles as the launch of the Sunshine Coast Business Awards 2021.  See below for more info on that event which I can guarantee will be uplifting and inspirational.  After the launch, nominations will open for this years Business Awards.  I’d love to see a high number of businesses participating from this part of the region.
