My children Indira and Duke’s (not so little anymore) birthday is in September and every year I have the realization It’s a fast slide into the end of the year, and 2019 is no exception.
We have had a wonderful month with the final extensive preparation for
OBM and our NT Digital Expo which went off with a bang on Tuesday 1st October. As the above picture depicts, we had so much fun rolling out the very well received digital workshops and informative sessions to NT small businesses. We are so proud of our Dante St James and Sammie Wigg for organising such a successful event. Big kudos to our ASBAS presenters and consultants who supported the event and delivered high quality digital advice to all the expo attendees.
New Staff Member
We also welcomed a new staff member Carly Hansen, Carly joins the team to be Megan’s and Lucy’s right hand person to deliver HR and Admin support to our private clients. We continue our country theme as Carly joins us from Katherine, welcome to the Treeti family Carly and enjoy the comradery and fast pace.
While the team continue to roll out nearly 50 ASBAS and EFS events across OBM, I head to Indonesia with Austrade and Study NT for the IVETS delegation and conference in Lombok and Jakarta. Our Export Advisor Mark Faulkner gets his first overseas hit out with Tradestart, visiting Shenzhen and Guangzhou China with Austrade and the NT Government for the Reaching South conference.
Busy October ahead, happy Business from all of us at Treeti Business Consulting.
ASBAS - Australian Small Business Advisory Services
September was another busy month for our ASBAS Digital Solutions program with a range of workshops and face to face consultations being run by our wonderful team of advisors.
We are now over half way into the delivery of the program and some of the results we are seeing from businesses who are engaged with the program are phenomenal. Their digital literacy and skill sets have grown exponentially and they are really taking charge, implementing new tools, tips and tricks that they are learning along the way.
If you would like to find out more about how your business can benefit from the program, head to www.asbasnt-treeti.com.au and check it out.
The inaugural NT Digital Expo was held on Tuesday 1st October 2019 at the Darwin Corporate Park.
The opening event for October Business Month began with a breakfast for NT Women in Business, delivered by our Managing Director, Claire Maradani sharing her story of how she became the technologically challenged leader of a digital disruptor organisation.
Following on from that we had a full day of interactive workshops and information sessions on all things Facebook, Instagram, Xero, Linkedin and Shopify. The day was extremely well received by the participants, with high levels of positive feedback coming in.
A huge well done to the ASBAS Team at Treeti, Dante St James & Sammie Wigg who worked tirelessly to put together the first Digital Expo, along with the rest of the Treeti Team. It is true, many hands makes light work, and the Treeti Team is continuing to show how they can work together as a well-oiled machine to deliver the suite of digital consulting services and events under the ASBAS Digital Solutions Program.
It has been another busy month of activities with the Entrepreneurship Facilitator Solutions program. Our lead facilitator Megan and support advisor Sammie hosted a range of activities across the month of September, including our monthly recurring Ideation (Idea Generation) and Business Model Canvas Days. These days give participants of the EFS program a chance to get really clear on their business ideas and begin putting their business plans together.
In September, one of our EFS Clients, High End Pain Relief Cream, had the golden opportunity to pitch to a focus group of people about their product and business. This session proved to be absolutely invaluable to our clients, who were able to see their idea through the lens of their potential clients and has provided them with the feedback they needed to continue growing their business. We wrapped the months activities up with our second Mumpreneurs morning tea.
If you would like more information on the workshops or the program and services, please contact our EFS Facilitator - Megan Holzfeind to RSVP your attendance today: [email protected].
