Brains trust in action at Kadina dinner

KADINA:  Yorke Peninsula’s women in business had the chance to tap into the collective brains trust of colleagues at the latest Women in Business Regional Network dinner in Kadina.

The dinner was the opportunity for those in attendance to pose questions about challenges in their businesses to get feedback and suggestions from others who may have experienced similar issues.

There was a range of challenges raised including how to get brand recognition, determining the best way to market to potential clients, refining a business in response to market feedback, how to deal with supervision of remote staff, overcoming procrastination and time management issues and more.

New member Dee Edwards from eNVIsion Barossa, Yorke & Mid North gave information about local programs to assist businesswomen, including the upcoming VentureDorm program that two members Alford’s Bridget Johns and Wallaroo’s Susanna Philbey have been accepted into.  This program is aimed at helping new start-ups to further develop their business concepts and directions.

There was much interest in an impromptu “show and tell” session from Moonta’s Gaynor Harding from Mother Duck & Mee who brought along some of the children’s and babywear merchandise from her shop, including items made by her daughter and also a dressmaker in Warooka.

The next Yorke Peninsula dinner is scheduled for Monday, November 9, and further details will be announced later.
