Business group hit the road to help

MEMBERS of a North Coast business advisors networking group, known as BANG, are meeting this week in Bangalow to discuss how best to lend a helping hand to local businesses.

The group is made up of representatives of State and Federal government agencies, funded bodies, as well as private sector business advisors.

BANG members are travelling from many areas, including Brisbane, to attend the gathering.

The committee of the North Coast Business Road Show will also present an update of this year's event and outline some new initiatives to the group.

Road Show co-ordinator and BANG organiser, Kym Kranen, hopes to announce a new sponsorship arrangement with a national franchise at the BANG meeting.

“This deal will enable us to stage an event that no business owner on the North Coast should miss. The North Coast Business Road Show is in its third year and the events objective has never been more important than it is right now,” Ms Kranen said.

The Road Show provides a one-stop shop for business owners to access free information, resources and advice to assist business success and sustainability in North Coast towns, via a travelling expo.

Business owners are able to speak to and get information from government agencies and private sector business advisors.

The Road Show will visit six centres over three weeks from September 8.

It will stop at Coffs Harbour, Yamba, Ballina, Lismore, Byron Bay and Tweed Heads.

Ms Kranen said the main aim of the Road Show was to bring a host of different, but valuable, business information together under one roof, saving the business owner a lot of time.

The North Coast Business Road Show runs to coincide with Small Business Month.
