Conference a success: GBDG
The Gawler Business Development Group (GBDG) hosted its SA Business Conference on Friday at the Gawler racecourse’s Terrace Function Centre with rave reviews.
Around 100 people attended the function, where a pay it forward project was announced for Gawler.
The project, which is subject to further details being released in June, will be an 18-month to two-year long venture involving Gawler’s businesses.
“It piqued some interest,” GBDG executive officer Caren Brougham said.
“People were really supportive of it, two speakers were raving about it… and they thought it was a fantastic idea.”
Furthermore, Ms Brougham said the SA Business Conference was very well received by all attendees.
“It was fantastic” she said.
“It was just unbelievable actually, how much everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and the information they received on the day”
“We will be sending a feedback form to all attendees to ensure next year’s event is even better.
“One of the (Gawler) councillors said it was world class, he was blown away with it.
“It’s really given some valuable information to people on how to protect what they have built.”
Ms Brougham added the event also received high praise from Gawler councillor Brian Samuel.
“He stood up and said every business in Gawler should have been there as it was so helpful,” she said.
“It’ll be very hard to top for us next year.
“The search is on for some speakers.”
Tammy Edwards had the opportunity to meet with Guest Speaker, Justin Herald at the SA Business Conference. Justin is someone she has followed and looked up to as a business owner since she started her business in 2005.
The Gawler business awards were also presented at the conference, with B Music taking home both the Commercial Based Customer Service Award and the Quality Product for Services Award.
Poetic Justice also took home the Community Spirit Award.
In the home-based awards, Back to Beauty won the Customer Service Award, and Synergy took home the Quality Products or Services Award.
