Business breakfast | Reinventing your business with Robert Gerrish
Would you like to re-invent your business by learning practical tips and strategies to create growth?
Then join us at the Scenic Rim Business Breakfast on Thursday 18 March to hear from Robert Gerrish, author of The 1-Minute Commute and business best seller Flying Solo: How to go it alone in business.
Robert will talk about:
- why customers drift away (and what to do about it)
- the opportunities that surround you and how to benefit
- how to be heard in a market that is full of noise, and
- those little steps can get you a long, long way
This free event is open to members of the Scenic Rim business community.
Following the breakfast, the World of Work Expo opens at 10.00am at the Beaudesert Showgrounds and runs until 2.30pm.
RSVP by Monday 8 March 2021. (Registration is mandatory as places are limited due to COVID-19 restrictions)
Following a career in the marketing and design industry in London and Sydney, Robert made the leap to his own business in the mid-1990s. Seeing a niche in the area of support and resources aimed at the ‘one-person business’, Robert launched the Flying Solo community in 2005.
With a small team, he grew the business to a member base of more than 120,000 Australian freelancers and entrepreneurs, before selling at the end of 2017. Back working solo, today Robert pops up regularly at conferences and events; supports individuals in the development of their ventures, and has hosted a series of podcasts including: 'The Business of Bookkeeping', 'The Flying Solo Podcast' and his own 'Rekindle' a show that explores how to keep the flame alive in your work.
His first book, 'Flying Solo: How to go it alone in business' was a business bestseller and his latest, 'The 1-Minute Commute' was published by Pan Macmillan in late 2018 and is available in-store, online and as an audiobook from Audible.com.
