February 2020 Update
2020 so far....
Welcome to all our Treeti supporters and followers to an exciting start to 2020. We are off to a flying start for all things business this year and recently welcomed the Chinese New Year with the blessing of our office thanks to the Chung Wah Society Dragon and Lion Dance Troupe as pictured above.
After a relaxing and refreshing Christmas / New Year break the Treeti team have hit the ground running. The demand for Strategic and Business Plans is at an all-time high which is a great reflection on the NT Business Community taking a closer look at “how” they plan and operate at the next level to match the current economic climate.
Workshop delivery demand has also been popular in the areas of Digital, Tradestart Export information and Business Entrepreneurial Services. Visit our website for a workshop date to scratch your business itch in a location near you in Darwin, Alice Springs, Katherine or Tennant Creek in March or April.
All in all, a great start to the year and we look forward to being of service to the NT Business Community throughout 2020.
ASBAS - Australian Small Business Advisory Services
A big start to the year!
ASBAS Digital Solutions has been very active in the start of 2020. We've already presented 12 individual workshops covering Facebook, Google, Instagram, LinkedIn and Presentation Skills. March will bring the beginning of our 3-part Facebook Ads program along with an excellent series of 4 workshops with popular Darwin copywriter, Nyree Slatter, on content writing for websites, social media and the all-important task of making sure your content is planned out and strategically executed.
We're planning a week of Digital Skills activity in Alice Springs in May - we can't wait to show you what we're planning!

Client of the Month
We are very excited to have award-winning Australian Blue Cypress, producers of the famous Kakadu Blue product as our client of the month.
Owned and operated by Darwin locals, Vince and Maryann Collins, the key ingredient for Kakadu Blue is the blue oil extracted from the endemic cypress pine Callitris intratropica.
Australian Blue Cypress have a patented process that means the oil is a true ‘blue’ colour which ensures that it has amazing health and wellness properties.
You may have seen Kakadu Blue around the top end at Nightcliff, Mindil and Parap Markets and you can now purchase direct from their factory at 19 Mander Road, Holtze on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 2pm and 4pm. Find out more about the Kakadu Blue range (and for a little online retail therapy) at www.kakadublue.com.au
Australian Blue Cypress have been exporting to the USA for a number of years and provide one of the key ingredients in the Young Living essential oil range and are currently in the process of expanding their export portfolio.
The first couple of months for this year have been a slow start, however we have planned many new presentations that we will aim to inform you about within the next couple of months. On the trade side there has been some disruption due to the bushfires that has affected business especially tourism, the government are encouraging people to holiday within Australia. The other major trade issue in the world now is the outbreak of the Coronavirus in Mainland China this has also affected tourism, education and trade. China is our largest trading partner and we hope that everyone in China is being safe and well.
