Hosted by Collins Hume, members of the business community turned out to hear keynote speaker and TedX veteran Paul Dunn talk about how myriad of seemingly small actions can create big outcomes in any business, all underscored by a giving back theme.
It did not go unnoticed that the audience comprised prominent members of the local community. One spectator said, "It's fantastic to be part of such a notable event. All of Ballina business is here today!"
'Unleash the Huge Power of Small' was enthusiastically supported by business sponsors ANZ Ballina, Ballina RSL, Bangalow Real Estate, Eye of Horus, GPS Wealth, McInnes Legal, Paradise FM, Quadracon Building, Quality Plus Printers, Regional Finance Solutions and Richmond Sand Gravel & Landscaping.
According to Collins Hume's organiser David Keith, about one per cent of Ballina's population turned up for the event, "We are hoping to create an ongoing buzz thanks to the efforts of all our sponsors."
"Business owners were inspired by new ideas, which they'll implement and influence their lives and, as a result, positively influence our community," he added.
'Unleash the Huge Power of Small' raised $18,000 for charity, including local organisations Biala Support Services and Hope Haven Women's Refuge who will both benefit.
The calculations received from Global Giving Initiative B1G1 following the event confirmed that funds raised are sufficient to also give 1,672 children in Malawi clean drinking water for life – a cause that the Collins Hume team feel very strongly about.
Another attendee added, "As soon as I had my first meeting with Collins Hume, I knew they were different. My wife insisted that I come along today and I'm very glad that I did. I'm impressed at how well this seminar has come together!"
