It is no mean feat to get 150 business people in one room to talk on issues close to the heart. But Sunshine Coast Enterprises is planning to do just that.
Working with Chambers of Commerce throughout the Coast, and a membership of 1400 businesses, this small but resourceful business development agency is planning what is being billed as 'One Event-One Collective Voice-ALL Sunshine Coast Chambers of Commerce in One Room'.
The event is part of an exciting collaboration between Sunshine Coast Enterprises, known as SCE, and individual Chambers of Commerce from Maleny to Cooroy, Caloundra to Noosa, and everywhere in between. Called the Chamber Alliance, the initiative is part of SCE's commitment to assisting Sunshine Coast businesses and government work together to ensure the region becomes a great place to live, work and do business.
If getting businesses in the one room on an August evening isn't enough of a challenge, getting them to step on a SoapBox and spend three minutes talking business may even be a bigger one. But it is all in an evening's work for SCE according to CEO Gerrie Carr-MacFie.
"Our Chambers are an important conduit to small business success. The Chambers represent a vital part in connecting and growing the resilience of our local and regional economies. Talking together, understanding mutual goals, and the hearing the different issues in each business community is part of maturing as a region".
"The Chamber Alliance has been growing in reach now for twelve months, and launching The SoapBox as a continuing forum for discussion, information and business solutions, comes at a good time in the development of business to business and Chamber to Chamber relationships on the Coast.
We expect the format to be fun, informative and at times quite challenging" said Ms Carr-MacFie.
The Chamber Alliance SoapBox event is to be held on 17th August 2010 at 6pm at the Maroochydore RSL.
With attendance and participation by all local politicians and candidates in the Federal election welcomed, and a number of Chambers already keen to 'get on the box' it seems the event will be anything but quiet.
Information and Bookings are available on the SCE website www.scenterprises.com.au or by phoning 07 5493 6211 to secure a place.
