Who doesn’t love a day out of the office, learning, being inspired, catching up with business besties and networking with newbies?
Most small business owners relish the chance to connect with other likeminded souls, as many of us spend our days solo, toiling away in silence, forgetting that there is a brave new world out there that is stretching and changing, (and also often forgetting to eat!). We can get so consumed by our own thing that we forget to come up for air.
So a business conference, with the promise of great speakers, new ideas (and awesome food), right on our doorstep, is a highly attractive opportunity to break the routine and stretch our pegs.
One such fantastic conference is the BITE Conference – this year held at the Frankston Arts centre. In its third instalment, BITE Con (Business, Innovation, Technology, Entrepreneurial) has become the ‘go to’ event on the Mornington Peninsula for discovering what trends are changing the small business landscape. The promise is that participants will not only hear about these trends but that they will uncover the latest tactics that will help us compete. And I reckon it delivered.
This year’s B.I.T.E. Con had an all-star cast of speakers that worked the stage and crowd to share their best ideas.
