BUSINESSPEOPLE in the Casey-Cardinia region have the chance to get up close and personal with key local business leaders – and learn their secrets to success – in a new speaking series launching next month.
For the first time, a consortium of local businesses are sponsoring a unique event in which four CEOs from the manufacturing, retail and accounting sectors will be sharing the secrets of their success so that other local businesses can benefit.
Speaking at the first event will be Silvio Marinelli, co-principal of Casey Cardinia Business of the Year winner Highview Accounting, Terry Steel from Jurgens Caravans, David Murphy from TRJ Engineering and Monique Filer from b.box for kids.
Each CEO will talk for 15 to 20 minutes outlining the key factors that have led to their success in business at the end of which there will be a panel question and answer session so that further insights can be gleaned by those attending.
The event has been conceived by local businesspeople Simon Maselli from Metamorph, Ian Ash from OrgMent Business Solutions, Norm Davidson from the Bendigo Bank and Peter Smith from New Era Management, supported by Star News Group and Casey Cardinia Business.
Mr Maselli said the events were designed to enable other CEOs and business leaders to learn from those who have made it, providing the chance to improve their own business performance more quickly.
He said many of the insights provided would demonstrate how simple actions can lead to dramatic results and how these techniques can be applied to any business irrespective of size and sector.
As a further benefit, the event will be run as a not-for-profit with any surplus funds being donated to the 4Cs Foodback.
The first session will be at the Cardinia Cultural Centre from 6pm to 8pm on Wednesday 18 March at a cost of $25 per head, which includes tea, coffee and biscuits.
Registrations are essential to secure a place at http://solbr.eventbrite.com.au
or pay on the night, subject to available capacity.
