Local business people and entrepreneurs are invited to attend a free talk on financial resilience this Thursday (June 9), either in person or online.
Led by the co-founders of the Northern Rivers Business Literacy Group (NRBLG), the event will include little known options available when facing the brink of financial crises, and stories highlighting the  tenacity and resourcefulness needed for business in these current times.
Speakers Cameron Arnold, Chair of Destination North Coast and CEO of Regen Tourism, and Susan Wanmer, Business Strategist and CXO at Ausana  Marketing Institute, have both faced financial hardships, recovered, and grown from their  times of financial distress.
Recently co-founding the NRBLG, they are mutually driven to  help others in business and believe that financial resilience and business literacy revolve around knowing how to navigate and avoid painful business situations.
The speakers will share their individual journeys of guiding their businesses back into profitability from the brink of collapse in a style that invites participants to ask questions and to share their own stories of profit and pain.
The event is being organised by the Byron Bay Chamber of Commerce in a collaboration with the Byron Community Centre, and bookings are essential.
You can book your free ticket here.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: To Hall and Back

There is something magical about a country hall. These small wooden buildings dot the landscape. They have a frugal modesty and an old fashioned generosity. If they had names they’d be called Thelma or Rose or Alan. They’re a pungent olfactory mix of last week’s wedding enmeshed with yesterday’s committee meeting. Curry and Jatz, tea and beer, tears and laughter.
