Business Festival brings Dan Gregory to Bass Coast


Award winning speaker, CEO of The Impossible Institute and a regular on the ABC’s Gruen Transfer, Dan Gregory is coming to Bass Coast as part of the 2016 Gippsland Small Business Festival.

Keynote speaker at a business breakfast to be held at Ramada Resort on Phillip Island, Mr Gregory will be discussing ‘What makes us buy and buy in’.

The event is a great opportunity to network with other local businesses and a chance to be inspired by an award winning speaker and renowned business leader.

"Small business has an incredible competitive advantage - they can be more agile and responsive than the big, bloated corporations. The digital revolution has allowed share of voice to go to the most dedicated,” Mr Gregory said.

"The most powerful marketing your business ever produces is the stories customers share when you're not in the room. But we need to move from storytelling to story doing!”

The business breakfast will be held on Wednesday, 24 August starting at 7.00am. Tickets are $25 and guests must RSVP at by Wednesday, 17 August.

With the Small Business Festival running throughout the month of August, there are plenty of free or low cost events happening around Gippsland and in Bass Coast.

With the support of Bass Coast Shire Council, small business mentoring sessions, a visit from the Small Business Bus and the 2016 Bass Coast Business Awards Presentation Dinner will all be held locally.
