Struggle or Success 2013 boosts Northern Rivers business
On Wednesday 15 May Collins Hume held its second business performance and strategy event Struggle or Success 2013 at Ballina RSL.

The evening featured esteemed business speakers, and informative and entertaining presenters who were joined by Northern Rivers business owners and members of the business community.

The evening kicked off with a warm welcome from Collins Hume Partner Peter Fowler. Guest speaker Mark Holton explained why it is crucial to embrace strategy when running a business, highlighted by a financial health check and scenario planning case study with Collins Hume's profit optimisation software demonstrated by Business Advisory Manager Jamie Doyle.

Following the seminar, the audience was treated to light refreshments and an opportunity to pose questions to the guest speaker and Collins Hume team.

Guest presenter and veteran corporate speaker Mark Holton praised Collins Hume on the professionalism of Struggle or Success 2013, as someone who graces the business stage across Australia.

Peter Fowler said, "Given the resounding success of Struggle or Success for a second year in a row, it's clear that local business owners are receptive to ideas. We are lucky to be situated within a business community that takes initiatives onboard and enjoys the impact as a result."

"Struggle or Success was very much in line with how business owners in the Northern Rivers region think. However making the transition from theory to practice is often the most challenging part."
