Business owners are invited to come along to the Mornington Peninsula Business Breakfast to learn about opportunities to help build their business and network with other likeminded people.
It is an opportunity for business owners to talk through their concerns and highlight areas of improvement directly with Flinders MP Greg Hunt.
There are more than 12,000 businesses in the Flinders electorate offering a diverse range of products and services to local residents.
“In order to help these businesses grow, the Government is working on strategies to boost our competitiveness, economic prospects and job opportunities,” Mr Hunt said.
“It is essential that Australia focuses on developing new products, new markets and new export opportunities.
“The Government offers a range of services to support and help small businesses grow and reach their potential.”
Geoff Carruthers from Gap Dev Corp will be speaking about business development and project management.
Geoff’s career history includes a broad mix of private and public sector roles, with a strong focus upon scoping and managing major projects through to delivery.
He has held CEO, Executive Director and Board positions, and operated his own design, consultancy, development and proprietary companies.
His work has been across Australia, SE Asia, and the USA, and is an internationally registered Professional Engineer.
“This is a terrific opportunity for local businesses to come together and share ideas and experiences,” Mr Hunt said.
“I encourage small business owners to come along and network over breakfast.”
