Healthy Businesses - Innovation fuelled by local Bank and Hospice

Friday, March 2, 2018

Digital Disruption has the capacity to change the landscape of local businesses overnight as well as open new  markets and depending on their agility and understanding on how to harness this rapidly evolving beast they’ll either sink or thrive.

Paradise Point Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank  will be making a real difference to local businesses by delivering Fuel, Breakfast for Healthy Business, a networking event that will help grow an understanding of how technology is driving change and inspiring businesses to embrace the enabling role of Digital Disruption by responding to potential changes in the marketplace, building better customer experiences and embracing customer mindsets to deliver cheaper, quicker and more convenient solutions. Working with the Office of Small Business this event will also present information on grant opportunities for small businesses to access digital technologies and services to enable them to work smarter and make the most of online business opportunities arising from digital disruption.

Hopewell Hospice Services Inc. is one of the many organisations that has benefited from Paradise Point Community Bank ® Branch of Bendigo Bank's community giving.  Bendigo Bank is offering the charity the opportunity to host this event at its Simply Divine Café and training rooms. According to Vikki Strickland, Director of Hopewell, “For us this is a great opportunity to maximise our marketing efforts, to build our capacity and to develop stronger networks in the community. We’ve been in partnership with Paradise Point Community Bank ® Branch of Bendigo Bank for twelve years and appreciate the difference they have made through supporting both the Hospice and Paradise Kids. It is exciting to see our relationship evolve through Fuel, Breakfast for Healthy Business. This event is aimed at businesses and NFP's wanting to thrive. We have limited places which will offer a supportive environment and help our speakers focus on tailoring Q&A’s for local businesses and    NFP's. It’s a win – win for everyone involved

Presenting the discussion with businesses are two excellent speakers Dr. Timo Dietrich, Lecturer, Griffith University and University of Queensland and Russell Cook, Principal at Matte Black Brand Agency. Both will bring academic research and agency experience to the event and are encouraging businesses to come armed with questions in order to tailor the talk to their needs.
