Action-packed schedule ahead for Peel Chamber of Commerce

It’s full steam ahead for the Peel Chamber of Commerce and Industry with a jam-packed program for the next few months.

2018 Alcoa Peel Business Excellence Awards

The 2018 Alcoa Peel Business Excellence Awards is nearly upon us with the Gala Night set to sell out yet again in record time.

This year’s Peel Regional Awards process has seen a record breaking amount of nominations and entrants, with the categories being more competitive than ever.

Being held on Saturday, September 1, this event is set to be the night of nights as we crown our business champions for 2018.

Fall back in love with your business workshop

Later in September, Peel Chamber in partnership with the Peel Thunder Football Club and the City of Mandurah will be hosting a must-attend, customer-focused business workshop with a twist.

We are incredibly fortunate to have the dynamic and very entertaining Roger Watson join us for this half-day workshop as a part of a private industry tour of WA.

This service delivery business training opportunity will assist local small businesses to gear up and get ready for the influx of visitors for the 2018 Australasian Police and Emergency Services Games and the upcoming peak tourism season.

The workshop will be held on Thursday, September 20, with tickets available online through Eventbrite.

2018 Future Proof Peel Business Conference

Following this, the highly successful Future Proof Peel Business Conference is back in November for another full-day of nationally-renowned keynote speakers focusing on topics such as cyber security, innovation, meaningful client relationships, leadership and business resilience.

We are excited to announce that this year’s keynote speaker is none other than the dynamic, hilarious and fearless Magda Szubanski, who is well-known for her roles in films such as Three Summers, Babe and The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course, and also her role as Sharon in the ever-popular Australian TV series Kath and Kym.

Magda will speak of her experience and unrivaled resilience in the harsh world of show business, and how this can apply to your business, no matter how big or small.

The business landscape is changing, with an evolving economic climate and a multitude of disruptions; we all need to be at the forefront of this change by sticking together and supporting each other.

In doing so, the region’s business community will not only survive – we will thrive, becoming an economic force to be reckoned with.

Andrew McKerrell is Peel Chamber of Commerce and Industry general manager.
