Ballina reinvents at business event

A FULL HOUSE of 160 Northern Rivers business owners were treated to a unique seminar called 'Reinvent: Playing a Bigger Game' at Ballina RSL last month.

reinvent playing a bigger gameIt was great to see members of our business community turn out to enjoy a repeat visit from TedX veteran Paul Dunn, who talked about how myriad of small actions can create big outcomes in any business, all underscored by a giving back theme.

First-time attendee and Collins Hume Accountant Kelly Crethar said, "I found it completely awesome, as did those who attended with me, and will be keen for a lot more information. I hope Paul comes back!"

'Reinvent: Playing a Bigger Game' was enthusiastically supported by sponsors ANZ Ballina, Ballina RSL, Paradise FM, Quadracon Building, Intuit QuickBooks, Somerville Laundry Lomax Solicitors and Cool Promo, whose contributions made it affordable for all sizes of business to attend. 

According to Business Manager David Keith, "A lot of people got a lot more out of Paul's presentation with new material plus the afternoon's 'Going Deeper' session."

"It's been great to take onboard the wonderful feedback from so many people who went along," Partner Peter Fowler added. "It's heartening to hear how many business people learnt new ideas, expanded their networks and took so much away from our presentation."

'Reinvent: Playing a Bigger Game' is set to raise some serious funds for charity, including $3,000 to local organisation Veterans' Advocacy Centre in Alstonville. Initial calculations by Global Giving Initiative B1G1 confirmed that funds raised are also sufficient to give 182 people in Malawi access to clean drinking water for life (332,150 giving impacts) – a cause that the Collins Hume team feels very strongly about.

Another attendee added, "Thank you for the awesome event. I found it particularly helpful how you shared tips, notes and examples on how to implement all these small yet powerfully effective ideas. My husband was just as inspired as I was last year, and again this year!"

At Reinvent business owners were able to take advantage of a special rate to participate in Collins Hume's Better Business Workshops. If you're interested in doing this in the future, please let us know as all workshops are currently fully booked.
