Melbourne to host Australia’s Small Business Summit 2017

The Vodafone National Small Business Summit, Australia’s premier policy event for small-business representatives, government and industry leaders will take place in Melbourne, 23 – 25 August, hosted by the Council of Small Business of Australia (COSBOA).

The theme for the 15th Annual Summit will be “Collaboration and Communities” – building and strengthening partnerships between policy makers and industry leaders. The Summit is the pinnacle gathering of the year that drives debate and discussion with a focus on supporting the future of more than two million small businesses across Australia.

Small-business leaders are invited to attend the event to exchange ideas, shape policy and discuss the current interests and concerns of Australia’s small-business owners – sessions will cover cyber security, banking and financial management, regulation red-tape, mental health and wellbeing and workplace relations.

This annual event is a great opportunity for leaders in the small-business community to connect with decision makers and key influencers, including the Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman, Fair Work Ombudsman, Commissioner of Taxation, ACCC and Council of Small Business Australia (COSBOA).

Small-business advocate and Chief Executive Officer of COSBOA, Peter Strong urges the community to come together and set the scene for small businesses in the year ahead.

“The Vodafone National Small Business Summit is central to the future of small businesses across the country. We need small business industry representatives to get involved, share the issues their small business are facing and join the debate on how we can improve the future for Australia’s small-business community,” said Mr Strong.
